Summer is pretty much over here in Michigan, so here is one last summertime recipe for the road.
Margarita Grilled Chicken
¼ cup tequila
2 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 handfull cilantro, chopped
1 tsp salt
4 chicken breasts (boneless and skinless)
Combine 1 tsp lime zest, juice of both limes, tequila, olive oil, garlic, cilantro, and salt. Place in a large plastic bag and add chicken, turning to coat. Marinate chicken in refrigerator about 8 hours.
Grill the chicken until cooked, about 5-7 minutes per side.
Garnish with more chopped cilantro, if desired.
Makes 4 servings.
So tasty. How can you go wrong with chicken and the flavors of a margarita? While I am not a huge drinker by any standard, I do enjoy margaritas. But due to pregnancy and breastfeeding, I have not been able to enjoy one for over a year now. This dish satisfied the little craving in me!
I served mine with Ginger Garlic Linguine and grilled zucchini.
Bring on the fall dishes!
