How you doin’? What does summer mean to you? The one thing I miss the most is not being allowed to have an outdoor grill (not permitted in a high-rise condo). However, I received a Phillips indoor smokeless grill for my birthday, so all is not lost. While it is not completely the same it is the next best thing. The grill only takes about 5 minutes to heat up to its 450⁰F. Better yet, it only takes about the same amount of time to clean up.
Grilled Margarita Chicken takes a certain amount of planning to allow for 5 hours minimum marinade time, or you can get started on the marinade the night before, put it in the frig and forget it. I purchase chicken breasts or thighs with the skin on to protect the tender nature of the meat. When grilling start with the skin-side down toward the heat.
Margarita Grilled Chicken has the fantastic flavor of tequila cooked into the chicken with subtle hints of sweetness and a little kick from the jalapeño. The gang is all here in this flavor profile…Tequila, lime, and orange all come together to create the best ever Margarita Chicken. This is one recipe you have to try!
