This recipe comes from my favorite Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond.
It is super easy to make and I marinated it overnight to give it added flavor.
I served it up with baked potatoes and corn and it was a hit!
- 4 limes
- 1 cup tequila
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 5 cloves garlic
- 1 jalapeno, sliced
- 1/2 bunch chopped fresh cilantro
- 12 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 2 cups grated Monterey Jack
Slice open the limes and squeeze the juice into a food processor or blender. Add the tequila, olive oil, salt, garlic, jalapenos and cilantro. Blend the mixture until totally combined. Add the chicken to a large plastic bag and pour in the lime-tequila mixture. Seal the bag and marinate in the fridge for several hours or overnight.
Remove the chicken from the bag and grill it over medium-high heat. Rotate the chicken 45-degrees on both sides to create nice grill marks, and continue grilling until the chicken is cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
Melt the Monterey Jack over the top of the sliced chicken breasts.
Slice the chicken and serve it on a plate topped with the sides.
