MARGARITA CHICKEN

Ingredients

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

Marinade
1 tbsp lime zest
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup canola oil
3 tbsps Tequila
1 tsp Kosher salt
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

Preparation

Put chicken in a re-sealable plastic bag.  Whisk together marinade ingredients and pour over chicken.  Seal bag and turn it gently so marinade coats each piece of chicken. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Pour marinade into a small saucepan, leaving chicken in the bag.  Bring marinade to a boil and continue boiling for 1 minute.  Remove from heat.

Heat grill to medium.  Grill chicken with the lid down, turning once and basting frequently with boiled marinade, until a thermometer inserted into the chicken reads 170F (about 5-7 minutes per side).   Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes before serving.  Serve with Grilled Corn Salsa.
