Tequila Lime Chicken

July 28, 2011

Fresh citrus juices, a splash of tequila (save a shot or two for yourself!), and a kick of jalapeño make this a super tasty dish! For the best tasting chicken, start marinating the day before. It's excellent served hot off the grill or chilled for a hot summer picnic.
