Ingredients

2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
(whole or cut in strips)
1 shot Tequila (shot glass is 1 oz I think)
1 shot lime juice
1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste, should be
pretty salty though)
Black pepper to taste
1 shot oil (I use olive oil, but vegetable
oil works too)
Cajun seasoning to taste (or paprika
or cayenne)


Mix all ingredients but chicken in a bowl. Pour


marinade into freezer bag with chicken, seal


with as little air in the bag as possible.


Marinate in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes


(if possible, you can do less if you are pressed


for time).


If you want to grill, that works nicely even on


indoor grill. If you saute or don't like to grill, reserve the marinade while browning the


chicken. Then once chicken is browned well,


pour in marinade in pan to deglaze (scrape


brown bits up), simmer until chicken is done


through. Serve with rice, pilaf, tortillas,


pasta, cornbread, whatever you like


Pairs Well With
