Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

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
