Description

This dinner is so easy, requires little prep and some overnight marinating. Enjoy these whole or on skewers.

Ingredients

  • 8 whole Boneless Chicken Thighs
  • ½ cups Tequilla
  • 1 cup Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
  • ½ cups Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Mexican Chili Powder
  • 1 whole Jalapeno Pepper, Seeded And Minced
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Oregano, Chopped
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Fresh Ground Black Pepper

Preparation

Pound out the chicken thighs a little and cut into strips for skewers, or cut into 1-2 inch chunks, or leave as is and marinate an entire piece for each person.

Combine the tequila, lime juice, orange juice, chili powder, jalapeno, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper in a large bowl (or sealable bag). Add the chicken. Refrigerate overnight.

Soak wooden skewers for 30 minutes before prepping for the grill. Heat a grill and brush the rack with oil to prevent the chicken from sticking.

Remove the chicken from the marinade, seasoning with salt and pepper if desired. Slide pieces of meat onto skewers and grill them for about 5 minutes, until nicely browned.

Turn the chicken and cook for another 10 minutes, until just cooked through.

Remove from the grill to a plate. Cover tightly and allow the meat to rest for 5 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature.
