Grilled Tequila Lime Chicken

Get your grill out boys... this Grilled Tequila Lime Chicken has a zesty taste of tequila, lime and a spicy kick that will put your taste buds in gear. Serves 6 Total Time: under 30 minutes +overnight marinating


1/2 cup gold tequila
1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (5 to 6 limes)
1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (2 oranges)
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon minced fresh jalapeno pepper (1 pepper seeded) or mild green chilies
1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic (3 cloves)
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
6 boneless chicken breasts, skin on


Combine the tequila, lime juice, orange juice, chili powder, jalapeno pepper, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add the chicken breasts. Refrigerate overnight. 

Heat a grill with coals and brush the rack with oil to prevent the chicken from sticking. Remove the chicken breasts from the marinade, sprinkle well with salt and pepper, and grill them skin-side down for about 5 minutes, until nicely browned. 

Turn the chicken and cook for another 10 minutes, until just cooked through and internal temperature reaches 160F-165F. Remove from the grill to a plate. Cover tightly and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Serve hot on a bed of noodles or rice. Easy Peasy!
