Tequila Lime Chicken: Waking Up Your Weekly Roast

Thursday, May 20, 2010

Bored of your weekly chicken dinner? Put the sizzle in your dinner with this easy, fiery, and healthy roast chicken dish from Ina Garten. The dish uses boneless chicken breasts, great sources of lean protein, and a variety of chilis and peppers loaded with antioxidants. It's also loaded with Vitamin C from oranges and limes.

Tequila Lime Chicken

1/2 cup gold tequila
1 cup lime juice
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon minced fresh jalapeno pepper
1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 whole boneless chicken breasts, skin on

Make the marinade: Combine the tequila, lime juice, orange juice, chili powder, jalapeno pepper, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add the chicken breasts. Refrigerate overnight.

Grill: Heat a grill and brush the rack with oil to prevent chicken from sticking. Remove the chicken breasts from the marinade, sprinkle well with salt and pepper, and grill them skin-side down until nicely browned. Turn the chicken and cook for 10 minutes. Remove and cover tightly to rest for five minutes. Serve hot.
