3) In a shallow dish, spread the mixture.
4) In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and lime juice together.
5) Take each chicken breast first to roll into flour, then dip in the egg mixture, allowing any excess to drip off. Next roll it into the bread crumb mixture, coating completely.
6) Place the breasts inside refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

7) In a large heavy skillet, melt half the butter with half the oil over medium heat.
