Amount Measure Ingredient, Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp white pepper
1/4 tsp allspice
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tbsp oil
2 cups raw white rice, cooked accordingly
2 tbsp broth
2 tbsp dry sherry
2 tbsp white wine
2 tbsp butter
1/4 cup chopped marjoram, or oregano
2 tbsp chopped rosemary
2 tbsp chopped sage

In a small bowl, combine first six ingredients.

Heat oil in a skillet, and brown chicken for 1 minute on each side. Reduce heat and continue to saute for 10 minutes, turning once.

Begin cooking rice according to package directions while chicken is cooking.

Transfer chicken to a platter and keep warm.

Add 2 tbsp broth to skillet and deglaze pan. Add brown sugar mixture and cook for 2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat and whisk in butter, 1 tbsp at a time, incorporating first tbsp before adding next.

Return chicken to pan, place herbs on top of it, and add any juices that accumulated on platter. Baste with sauce in pan (carefully, so as not to dislodge herbs from chicken). Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes or until done. Serve with rice.
