Tequila Lime Chicken

This is another Pioneer Woman recipe. I prepared it a bit different. Give it a try!

What you'll need:
3 whole Limes, Juiced
5 cloves Garlic, Peeled
3 whole Jalapeno, get most of the seeds out and give a rough chop
1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
½ cups Cilantro
½ cups Tequila
5 Tablespoons Olive Oil
4 whole Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
3 Green Peppers sliced
1 large Red Onion sliced

Combine lime juice, garlic cloves, sliced jalapeno, salt, cilantro, and tequila in a blender. Pulse until combined. Turn on the blender and drizzle in the olive oil until it’s all combined.

Slice chicken breasts. Place in a plastic bag and pour in marinade. Seal bag and marinate for several hours or (preferably) overnight. Throw on a grill pan and pan fry, took about 10 minutes.

Have your peppers and onions sliced and ready to go in another pan. Sprinkle with a little salt and cook for about 5 minutes, I like mine with a little crunch left.

Mix the chicken and peppers together and serve with warm tortillas and favorite toppings.

Juice your limes
This is how you get the husk off of garlic. Put the flat side of the knife against the garlic and press down. The husks crack off easily.
Spoon out most of the seeds and make sure you are wearing your rubber gloves
Leave a few seeds for heat.
Rough Chop and into the blender with
All blended..such a pretty shade of green
Marinate your chicken for a few hours
Chop and season with a slight sprinkle of kosher salt
Cook your chicken. I used my favorite grill pan.
Peppers and onions cooked to your liking. I like them with a little crunch
Mix it all together and MMMMMMM
