Spicy Margarita Chicken

I saw this recipe over on Tasty Kitchen and immediately put it on our menu.  It was really good - super juicy and packed full of flavor.  The chicken had a little kick, but I wouldn't say it was super spicy.  You can adjust the heat by using less jalapeño or not using the seeds in the pepper.  I served the chicken with the rice from my Polo Loco dish and garnished it with some fresh cilantro I was growing.  {I say "was growing" because Jack sat in it and killed it.}  This would even be good as fajitas.  We both really enjoyed the chicken, and I would definitely make it again.

(Printable Recipe)

1/2 cup tequila
3 Tbsp triple sec
1/2 cup fresh lime juice (about 4 limes)
1 tsp chili powder
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp cumin
1 jalapeño
6 boneless chicken breasts

Puree all ingredients except chicken in food processor.  Put chicken in gallon ziplock bag, pour marinade over chicken.  Marinate in refrigerator for 2-3 hours. Grill approximately 12-15 minutes, or until juices run clear.

  1. What a great recipe idea and glad to know it is not too spicy. I will have to try it!

  2. I gave up on trying to grow cilantro. My cat LOVES it! Just cheaper to buy a bunch rather than replenishing my live plants!

  3. always looking for something new to try with chicken..this looks delish!

  4. Well heck yeahs! I like that a lot, nice grilled chicken dish.

  5. Can't wait to try this. I have been getting something similar to this at Chili's on their healthy menu and have been trying to figure out how to make it! Thanks!
