This is the most flavor-packed grilled chicken I’ve ever made.  The chicken should be marinated in the homemade, fresh tequila lime marinade for at least a half hour.  With the flavors of tequila, fresh lime juice, chopped cilantro, and garlic blended together- this chicken is perfect for grilling on a hot summery day.  Enjoy with your favorite southwestern inspired sides!


-4 Chicken Breasts
-3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
-1/4 cup of Tequila
-2 Limes, juiced
-4 Garlic Cloves, minced
-1/2 cup of Cilantro, chopped
-1 Jalapeno, diced

Juice limes into a container with the tequila and olive oil.  I heard a trick to roll the limes on a hard surface before juicing for better results- and it works!

The limes are easier to  squeeze more juice out of.

Chop cilantro, garlic, and jalapeno.

Add into container as well.

Add chicken to marinade- put in fridge for at least a half hour, but preferably 1-2 hours.

Put chicken on the grill on medium heat.

Cook until chicken is done and juices run clear.
