I first found a similar recipe on the Food Network’s website. I was browsing the Barefoot Contessa’s shows and found the recipe there. When I went back a few weeks later to print it out for my mom, the recipe had been removed. A search on the net (thanks, Tall & Handsome) found the same recipe under this guise. I made this for my Dad after he came home from the hospital after he had heart by-pass. I made a minor adjustment to the salt. Bev
Grilled Tequila-Lime Chicken
By Beverly Hicks Burch
1 cup fresh lime juice ( 5 to 6 limes)
1/2 cup tequila
1/2 cup orange juice (2 to 3 oranges)
1 minced seeded jalapeño chili
1 tablespoons chili powder
¼ – ½ teaspoon course salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon minced garlic
½ teaspoon cumin (optional)*
6 boneless chicken breast halves with skin
Mix lime juice, tequila, orange juice, jalapeños, garlic, cumin, chili powder, salt
and pepper in bowl. Add chicken; turn to coat. Cover; chill overnight.
Prepare barbecue (medium heat). Brush grill rack with oil. Grill chicken
until cooked through, turning occasionally, about 18 minutes. If marinade is boiled for 5 minutes it can be used to baste the chicken during cooking. Transfer to platter. Serves six.
*I’ve made it with and without the cumin. Either way it marvelous!
