 Ingredients List

  • 2 Chicken breasts
  • 4 Cloves garlic; cut in half
  • 3 tb Peppered tequila; see Notes
  • 3 tb Fresh lime juice
  • 3 tb Fresh orange juice
  • 1 1/2 ts Orange zest; grated
  • 1 ts Lime zest; grated
  • 1/2 ts Caribe chile; crushed (see
  • -Notes)
  • 1/2 ts Black pepper; freshly ground
  • 1 ts Brown sugar
  • 3 tb Olive oil
  • 3 tb Fresh cilantro; chopped


1. Rub the chicken with the garlic and place in a non-reactive dish.

2. Mix the tequila, citrus juices, zest, crushed chile pepper, black
pepper, and sugar. Add the oil and mix well.

3. Pour over the chicken and add the cilantro.

4. Cover and marinate for 2 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.

5. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

6. Remove the chicken and place in a pan. Bake for 20 minutes, basting
frequently with marinade.

NOTES : 1. Use regular tequila or gin (very good) for replacement for
peppered tequila. 2. Use any crushed chile (coarse pieces rather than
powder, like for sprinkling on pizza) instead of Caribe. 3. Instead of
cooking in oven grill on BBQ. 4. Makes excellent fajita marinade for
chicken or steaks as well.
