Grilled Tequila Lime Chicken

Category: Chicken

 Ingredients List

  • 3 tbsps olive oil
  • 3 tbsps tequila
  • 3 tsps lime zest (you”™ll need 2 limes*)
  • 4 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1 1/4 tsps chili powder (ancho)
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1 1/4 tsps salt (**)
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper (freshly)
  • 2 tsps honey
  • 2 lbs chicken tenderloins
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 lime (sliced into wedges for serving, optional)


Combine all ingredients except chicken breasts in a 1 gallon freezer bag. Close the bag and squish marinade around to mix. Add chicken breasts and massage marinade into meat until evenly coated. Seal the bag and place it in a bowl in the refrigerator (the bowl protects against leakage); marinate for at least 6 hours or overnight.

2. Clean grill and preheat to high. Lightly dip a wad of paper towels in vegetable oil and, using tongs, carefully rub over grates several times until glossy and coated. (Alternatively, you can spray the grates with a non-flammable cooking spray.) Place chicken breasts on the grill and spoon any remaining marinade from the bag over top. Grill, covered, for 2-3 minutes per side (turn only once). Serve immediately with lime wedges.
