Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken!

This is a very simple yet very very delicious recipe. I would change it up a little bit and add some chicken broth (about 1/3 cup) at the end to make more sauce. The lime juice just isn't enough sauce for me. Would be great with corn on the cob w/ butter, dash paprika, salt and pepper to taste. I also doubled the dry rub as I prefer a little more seasoning. All in all I will definitely be making this many more times.
Forgot to take a picture so gotta use the one from allrecipes.com where I found this recipe.

3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
4 boneless, skinless chicken
breast halves

2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons lime juice

1. In a small bowl, mix together salt, black pepper, cayenne,
paprika, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, onion powder, thyme and parsley. Sprinkle
spice mixture generously on both sides of chicken breasts.
2. Heat butter and olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium
heat. Saute chicken until golden brown, about 6 minutes on each side. Sprinkle
with 2 teaspoons garlic powder and lime juice. Cook 5 minutes, stirring
frequently to coat evenly with sauce.
