This Tequila Lime Chicken has all of the flavor of your restaurant favorite and it stays so juicy and flavorful. Fire up the grill for Cinco de May or any day of the week!
I hope you are enjoying #MexicanRecipes week as much as I am. I just love all of the inspiration! Since we started off the week with a side dish, I thought we better do a main dish as well. Of course I love just about anything wrapped in a tortilla, but I figured with all of the carbs in the Mexican Street Corn Barley Salad I should probably take it easy on the entree. Besides, it’s grilling season and we better take advantage while the getting is good!
So I decided to riff on one of my favorite Mexican inspired dinners, tequila lime chicken. In reality it’s probably quite a bit different than what I’ve had out, starting with the yogurt.
We just love how tender and juicy yogurt seems to make grilled chicken. In fact the Lemon and Yogurt Marinated Grilled Chicken is one of our go to dinners. So I couldn’t help but to stir some in here too.
Otherwise it’s a lot of what you might expect. Of course there’s tequila and lime otherwise the name would just be awkward. I also added some lemon to up the citrus punch and jalapeno to make it interesting.
Of course we were licking our fingers between bites of this goodness! We tend to like to grill drumsticks or thighs as we find them more succulent, but of course it would be good on chicken breasts as well.
Now I’m dying to know what your favorite Mexican inspired dishes are!
