Grilled Tequila Lime Chicken

It’s spring which means my husband’s calendar revolves around playoff NBA basketball. BOO! It allows me extra time to blog I guess. I try hard to sit next to him and pretend to care. I try so hard. But I just can’t get into Atlanta sports. I am a Chicago girl at heart and not a huge professional sports fan. In his defense, he did press pause on the tv and run out to the grill to help me finish dinner. This chicken marinade is a home run and makes chicken tacos a tasty family meal. I always know a recipe is post worthy when my Isaac comes back with a round 2 plate.

Grilled Tequila Lime Chicken

Ingredients:

3 limes
3/4 cup tequila
5 Tbsp. olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
5 cloves garlic, peeled
1 jalapeno, sliced
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro or flat leaf italian parsley
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Ingredient Options for serving:  flour or corn tortillas, queso fresco, monterey jack cheese, avocado slices, limes, sour cream, diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, jalepenos, refried beans, salsa

 

Directions:

Marinade: Slice open the limes and squeeze the juice into a food processor or blender. Add the tequila, olive oil, salt, garlic, jalapenos and cilantro/parsley. Blend the mixture until totally combined. Add the chicken to a large plastic bag and pour in the lime-tequila mixture. Seal the bag and marinate in the fridge for several hours or overnight.

Grill: Remove the chicken from the bag and grill it over medium-high heat. Rotate the chicken 45-degrees on both sides to create nice grill marks, and continue grilling until the chicken is cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side.

Serve: Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes. Slice on a bias into thin slices or shred into small pieces. Add chicken to a tortilla and all the toppings you desire. Rice ands beans make a great side to this meal.

This is based off the Pioneer Woman’s Recipe. I own her cookbook The Pioneer Woman Cooks and I love all the step by step pictures. Ree Drummond, the Pioneer Woman, has a show on Food Network, an awesome blog, tons of cookbooks, lots of kids, a cute hubby, a huge cattle ranch, and a laid back personality. I love her!
