Easy and Delicious! Just marinate and grill (on an outdoor grill, or on a stove-top grill pan). This bold marinate adds great flavor to boring old chicken breasts. This chicken goes great with re-fried beans, rice, veggies, etc. and the leftover chicken is a wonderful addition to salads, quesadillas, and a variety of casseroles.
- Juice of 2 limes,
- 1/2 cup tequila
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
- 1/4 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
- 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Add the lime juice, tequila, olive oil, salt, garlic, jalapenos, and cilantro to a gallon ziplock bag. Squish it around to mix thoroughly. Add the chicken, remove as much air as possible, seal the bag. and squish around again to combine.
Marinate the chicken in the fridge for several hours. When you’re ready to grill, remove the chicken from the fridge about 30 minutes before you’re ready to cook it.
Heat coals in a charcoal grill (gas grills work just fine, too). Place the chicken breasts on the hot side of the grate, directly above the coals. Sear the breasts for about three to four minutes per side, turning only once, until golden brown. When the breasts are properly browned, move them to the warm, or indirect, side of the grate. Replace the lid and cook chicken until the internal temperature is 165°F (about 20-30 minutes total grill time).
Let the chicken rest for a few minutes so that the juices can redistribute. Then, serve and enjoy!
