I’ve had this recipe ready to go the week of Cinco de Mayo and of course for some reason Blogger wouldn’t post it and then it vanished so here’s to trying again! The day I was going to grill this chicken was the day I had studied all day for a World Civilization final and by the time dinner rolled around I was in no mood to cook. All I really wanted to do was close my eyes and not think about any World Wars or anything Ottoman Empire related so I did what any full-time student/mother/wife would do – announced dinner would be out! So, this chicken got an extra day of marinating and wow, it was good!
Fresh ingredients are the star of this one- limes, oranges, garlic, and jalapeno peppers along with some other seasonings, and of course, tequila. The chicken grilled up in no time and the taste of all the flavors from the marinade were all through the tender meat. Reserve a bit of the marinade BEFORE adding it to the chicken to drizzle over the chicken once it’s cooked through. Serve up with your favorite sides and don’t forget the margarita!
