You’ll need:

  • zest of 1 lime
  • juice of 3 limes
  • juice of 1 orange
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, minced (ribs and seeds removed)
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • handful fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 2 oz. tequila
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (~2 lbs, or more if you are feeding more people)

Put the chicken breasts in a zip top bag.  Set aside.

Combine all ingredients (minus the chicken) in a small bowl.  Whisk to combine and pour into the bag, over the chicken.  Slosh everything around, and set aside in the fridge.  Allow the chicken to marinate for 2-3 hours, sloshing the contents around occasionally.

Grill until done through.  Enjoy!
