Tequila Lime Chicken
CATEGORIES
INGREDIENTS
  • 2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • (whole or cut in strips)
  • 1 shot Tequila (shot glass is 1 oz I think)
  • 1 shot lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste, should be
  • pretty salty though)
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 1 shot oil (I use olive oil, but vegetable
  • oil works too)
  • Cajun seasoning to taste (or paprika
  • or cayenne)
DIRECTIONS
  1. Mix all ingredients but chicken in a bowl. Pour
  2. marinade into freezer bag with chicken, seal
  3. with as little air in the bag as possible.
  4. Marinate in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes
  5. (if possible, you can do less if you are pressed
  6. for time).
  7. If you want to grill, that works nicely even on
  8. indoor grill. If you saute or don't like to grill, reserve the marinade while browning the
  9. chicken. Then once chicken is browned well,
  10. pour in marinade in pan to deglaze (scrape
  11. brown bits up), simmer until chicken is done
  12. through. Serve with rice, pilaf, tortillas,
  13. pasta, cornbread, whatever you like
