Chicken, Lime, Tequila, and the perfect blend of seasonings yields moist, tender and flavorful chicken. If you go out to dinner, you’ll pay a lot for a Mexican dinner like this. You can serve your family the same meal at home pay way less and have a tastier homemade meal. We love Mexican food and this meal did NOT disappoint. The Mexican Rice complimented the chicken, the lime flavor was wonderful, and it was a nice change from lemon.
You could slice the chicken and pile it on a Taco Shell, Flatbread, or a Salad if you’d rather. It would be great stuffed in an Enchilada or Burrito. Top with the Rice or serve it on the side for a complete Mexican dinner your family is sure to love.
2 – 2 ½ lbs boneless chicken
1/3 cup Tequila
1/4 cup Orange Juice
1/3 cup Lime Juice
2 TBSP Lime Zest
3 TBSP Olive Oil
1 Jalapeno Pepper, chopped
5 – 7 Cloves Garlic, Minced
¼ tsp Cumin
½ – 1 tsp Sriracha Chili Powder
Salt and Pepper
In a large bowl, combine all Ingredients except Chicken. Whisk until combined. Butterfly chicken, pierce with the tines of a fork and add to bowl with Marinade. Cover and refrigerate a minimum of two hours. I like to leave it overnight.
Cook as desired. Grilled, Baked, or Pan Fried.
Recipe Notes: Make sure you use an oven-safe skillet or pan before baking the chicken in the oven. You may also grill the chicken. For the chicken, you can use boneless and skinless chicken breast/chicken thighs or bone-in chicken thighs.
