Margarita Grilled Chicken

Happy Ocho de Mayo!

OK--it doesn't have the same ring as "Cinco de Mayo," huh?

With this recipe, you'll be won't care what "day of de Mayo" it is

 you'll be happy to have it!

Over the weekend, my girl cherub found a recipe that she was dying for us to make . . .

Tequila grilled chicken.

Well . . . .

let's just say we improvised, for a variety of reasons!

Monday, I headed to the store to gather everything we would want to celebrate in a Mexican way!

  • chicken
  • corn tortillas
  • jalapenos
  • queso fresco
  • cilantro
  • limes
  • margarita mix
Yep, that's what I used instead of the tequila.

Margarita mix!

We don't know any different . . .we loved it!

If you make this recipe, feel free to make any substitutions that you want;

after all, that's what we did!

My cherub got the recipe from The Pioneer Woman

Well, not directly from her, but from the show, I guess.

I never saw the recipe, I just went on what my cherub said,

as she rattled it off while we were driving to a ball game.

Honestly, I'm not sure I have all the right stuff, but this is how I made it!
Margarita Grilled Chicken
(adapted from the Pioneer Woman)

4 chicken breasts, pounded thin
1 cup margarita mix
1/4 cup of oil
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
1/2 of  jalapeno, chopped
1/4 - 1/3 cilantro, chopped

In a large ziplock bag, place all of the ingredients and mush together.

Pop in the refrigerator and let it do its thing until you're ready to grill.  A good 8 hours isn't too long!

Preheat the grill and cook; turning half way through grill time to brown both sides and cook evenly.

Serve with charro beans, rice, and sliced avocado.
