Ingredients

  • Ingredients

  • 3

    tablespoons olive oil

  • 3

    tablespoons tequila

  • 3

    teaspoons lime zest (you'll need 2 limes)*

  • 4

    garlic cloves, minced

  • 1-1/4

    teaspoon ancho chili powder

  • 1/2

    teaspoon ground coriander

  • 1/4

    teaspoon oregano

  • 1-1/4

    teaspoons salt**

  • 1/2

    teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 2

    teaspoons honey

  • 4

    boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to even 1/2-inch thickness, or 2 pounds chicken tenderloins

  • 1

    lime, sliced into wedges for serving (optional)

Directions

1. Combine all ingredients except chicken breasts in a 1 gallon freezer bag. Close the bag and squish marinade around to mix. Add chicken breasts and massage marinade into meat until evenly coated. Seal the bag and place it in a bowl in the refrigerator (the bowl protects against leakage); marinate for at least 6 hours or overnight. 2. Clean grill and preheat to high. Lightly dip a wad of paper towels in vegetable oil and, using tongs, carefully rub over grates several times until glossy and coated. (Alternatively, you can spray the grates with a non-flammable cooking spray.) Place chicken breasts on the grill and spoon any remaining marinade from the bag over top. Grill, covered, for 2-3 minutes per side (turn only once). Serve immediately with lime wedges.
