Margarita Chicken – Yep….that’s right…with tequila!
Mmm….margaritas are my absolute favorite cocktail when that special event comes around and I treat myself to a special adult beverage. So, when I saw this recipe, it caught my eye! This marinade gives chicken a tangy citrus flavor with extra kick. (Most of the alcohol evaporates during cooking.)
1 Tbsp. tequila
½ cup 100% natural orange juice
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
½ medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
4 (4-oz.) raw chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
1 dash sea salt
1 dash cayenne pepper
1. Combine tequila, orange juice, lime juice, onion, and garlic in a medium bowl; whisk to blend.
2. Place chicken in glass dish. Pour marinade over; toss gently to coat. Refrigerate, covered for 30 minutes to 2 hours.
3. Preheat grill or broiler on high
4. Remove chicken from marinade. Season with salt and cayenne. Discard marinade.
