Margarita Chicken

This recipe is another from Lovestoeat, who got it from Too Shai Shai. I served it with mexican green beans. My picture=not so hot. The chicken=awesome! I marinated for about three hours. I served it over some black beans and rice with a little lime juice squeezed on top. This was really good. I think it would be good in a tortilla too (but what isn't, really?)



Margarita Chicken

1/4 cup lime juice
2 tablespoons gold tequila
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon canola oil
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 Haas avocado, sliced (I didn't use)

1. Mix together all ingredients, except avocado, in a Ziploc bag. Marinate chicken in refrigerator for at least one hour. (Don't do this overnight, unless you leave the lime juice out; add lime juice in last few hours or so)
2. Preheat grill over medium high heat. Remove chicken from marinade. Discard marinade. Grill chicken 10-15 minutes or until cooked through.
3. Serve chicken topped with avocado slices.
