Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into 12 strips

1 10-ounce can frozen margarita mix, thawed

2/3 cup tequila

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

2 tablespoons chicken seasoning

Vegetable oil, for the grill

Baby arugula and lime halves, for serving

Directions

  1. Place the chicken, margarita mix, tequila, cilantro and chicken seasoning in a large resealable plastic bag; squeeze out the air and seal. Massage the bag to combine the ingredients. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Meanwhile, soak 12 wooden skewers in water. 
  2. Preheat a grill to medium. Remove the chicken from the marinade; thread each piece onto a skewer. Oil the grill grate; grill the chicken skewers for 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until the meat is cooked through. Serve on a platter with arugula and lime.
