You know that tequila and lime pair well together in your favorite boozy drinks — margaritas, anyone? — but, believe it or not, these crisp, fresh flavors can star in surprisingly healthy dinners as well. In this week's Most Popular Pin of the Week, Ina Garten uses the liquor and the citrus juice, along with bold chili powder, to make a simple marinade for chicken breasts, which she quickly grills until tender and juicy. Bonus: Ina notes that the chicken can be served hot or at room temperature, so you can take your time as you work on sides to round out the meal.
