Grilled Tequila Lime Chicken

Share this Recipe


6 boneless chicken breasts


1 cup freshly squeezed FRESH lime juice, only fresh no bottled
1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/2 cup gold tequila—I know you’re tempted to drink it—but use it in the recipe!
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Lime Ole! gourmet sea salt, from Infusions by Salts of the 7 Seas! Real lime juice in this sea salt!
3 or 4 grinds fresh black pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

  1. Stir the lime juice, orange juice, tequila, cilantro, garlic, salt, and pepper together in a medium bowl.
  2. In zip-freezer bags, pour the marinade and the chicken breasts—about 3 per bag. Turn the bags over a couple times, then put them in the refrigerator for up to 12 hours. Don’t worry: the chicken will not “cook” in the marinade, the meat will be whitish in color when you take it out, but you’ll have juicy, flavorful chicken when you are finished!
  3. Preheat the grill to medium heat, and brush the grill rack with oil. Grill the chicken 10 minutes on the first side, then turn and cook another 8 minutes.                                                                                                                             NOTE: This is where you can give this delicious grilled chicken a little KICK!
