Tequila Lime Grilled ChickenPosted: June 23, 2009
A perfect summer meal. We were having friends from MI over to visit and have dinner and I thought this would be the perfect dish to serve. I served it with cabbage and herb orange slaw, iced cold watermelon and Spanish rice. I found this recipe on Annie’s Eats a recipe from Ina Garten. Check out her site for more delicious dishes!
Ingredients: I did triple the recipe for our dinner guests
1/4 cup tequila
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 cup freshly squeeze orange juice
1 tsp. chili powder
1 jalapeno pepper, ribbed, seeded and minced
2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed through a garlic press
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Combine the tequila, lime juice, orange juice, chili powder, jalapeno, garlic, salt and pepper in a bowl or zippered plastic bag. Mix well; add the chicken breasts to the container. Cover and refrigerate overnight, or at least 8 hours.
When you are ready to cook the chicken, heat a grill to medium-high heat. Oil the grates to prevent the meat from sticking. Once the grill is heated, cook the chicken until nicely browned and cooked through, about 15-20 minutes. Allow the chicken to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
