Tequila Lime Chicken

Tequila Lime Chicken is my go-to summer grill meal.  Chicken is marinated in lemon and lime juices spiked with tequila.  Garlic, jalapeno, salt and pepper add the more flavor to the marinade and help to make this grilled chicken dish oh so good.

  2. I’ll have to try this. It sounds good and I like the simple idea of cutting the chicken into strips.

    Oh, YUM! I love trying new marinades. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  4. This sounds really light, and tasty! What could replace the alcohol if I were to make it for a friend who goes into relapse at the flavor?
