Best Ever Grilled Margarita Chicken

Best Ever Grilled Margarita Chicken

  • 3-5 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast (washed and trimmed)
  • Zest of 1 lime (about 1 tablespoon)
  • Juice of 3 limes (about ½ cup)
  • Juice of 1 orange (about ¼ cup)
  • 1 jalapeƱo pepper, minced (seeded and deveined to reduce heat)
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced or grated
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander seed
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 ounces Cuervo Gold tequila
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  1. Place chicken in a resealable gallon size plastic bag.  Set aside.
  2. Combine all ingredients, except chicken, in a small bowl or measuring cup.  Whisk to combine.  Pour the marinade over the chicken, seal and place in the refrigerator to marinate for 3-24 hours.  Turn chicken occasionally.
  3. Preheat grill to medium-high.  Place chicken on the counter to take the chill off, about 30 minutes.
  4. Grill chicken about 4-5 minutes on each side, turning half way to get great grill marks.  Serve and enjoy.
DONNA'S NOTES:  You can also cook this in the oven.  Preheat oven to 350 degree F.  Pour off 1/2 of marinade, add the chicken and remaining marinade to a 9x13 baking dish and bake for 45-60 minutes, until cooked through.
