Tequilla Lime Chicken
See the photo below? You can imagine this is a summery meal, a patio meal, if it starts out with tequila and limes.
It's super easy to make. Slice open the limes and squeeze the juice into a food processor or blender. Add the tequila, olive oil, salt, garlic, jalapenos and cilantro. Blend the mixture until totally combined.
Add the chicken to a large plastic bag and pour in the lime-tequila mixture. Seal the bag and marinate in the fridge for several hours or overnight. I left it overnight.
Remove the chicken from the bag and grill it over medium-high heat. For starters I did not use breast meat. Yeah, I know that's what the recipe calls for but we just don't like it. We like thighs so I used boneless thighs.
I wasn't successful with the asethetic appeal of my dish but it did taste good.

Here is the original recipe as posted at Food Network. If you made this, or plan to do so, let me know if your dish comes out as pretty at The Pioneer Woman's because I couldn't manage it. Haha
