Margarita Chicken

Looking for something different for your salad or tacos? Try this sweet and tangy twist on everyday grilled chicken.

1 lb chicken breast or tenders
1 lime, zest and juice
1/8 cup tequila
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp coriander
1 clove garlic, grated
1 tsp honey

Whisk together all but chicken in a glass bowl or measuring cup. Rinse and dry chicken and remove any extra fat. Pour marinade over chicken and marinade at least 30 minutes, and up to 24 hours.

This is also a great marinade to pour over chicken before you are freezing. That way when you are ready to use it, it will thaw in the marinade and absorb the flavors.
