Grilled Margarita Chicken
85 mins (prep 60, cooking 25)
9 ingredients
8 servings
This marinade has all the ingredients of a margarita! Marinate the chicken breasts for an hour (not much longer, or the lime juice will start to cook the chicken) and then grill over medium-hot coals. Servings are based on the number of chicken pieces. If you have hearty eaters, this will not serve 8! Delicious!
