Ingredients
Directions

Slice open the limes and squeeze the juice into a food processor or blender. Add the tequila, olive oil, salt, garlic, jalapenos and cilantro. Blend the mixture until totally combined. Add the chicken to a large plastic bag and pour in the lime-tequila mixture. Seal the bag and marinate in the fridge for several hours or overnight.

Remove the chicken from the bag and grill it over medium-high heat. Rotate the chicken 45-degrees on both sides to create nice grill marks, and continue grilling until the chicken is cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side.

Melt the Monterey Jack over the top of the sliced chicken breasts.

Slice the chicken and serve it on a plate topped with the sides.

I made this recipe to use for tacos. My husband and I both agreed there was just not enough flavor in the dish. Perhaps some more seasonings would do the trick. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Did not do a single thing for the chicken breasts. However, I have tried 4 different tequila-lime chicken recipes, it is the same with all of them. It sounds interesting, but any taste comes from the garlic with a hint of lime. I am quitting on the tequila-chicken! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish was okay. The chicken was too bland and dry while the tequila was too strong. This is not one of Ree's best recipes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
