What could be better than tequila? Tequila lime chicken grilled up on GrillGrates! We love this recipe from BBQ BBOY for it's fresh, summer flavors.

 3 Boneless Chicken Breasts, Split in Half and Pounded For Even Thickness
 0.50 cup Tequila
 0.75 cup Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
 Lime Zest
 0.50 cup Orange Juice
 2 tbsp Olive Oil
 0.25 cup Chopped Cilantro
 2 Cloves Minced Garlic
 1 Chopped & De-seeded Jalapeno
 2 tbsp Tajin Powder
 1 tsp Black Pepper

Combine all the ingredients into a bowl and add split chicken breast.


Cover and place in refrigerator for 30-45 min (No Longer than 1 hour, as the acid in lime juice can overcook the chicken).


Take chicken out, pat dry, and place over medium-hot GrillGrates flipping every 2-3 min.


When Chicken reaches an internal temp of 160°F- 162ºF, remove from grill and let it rest on a plate or cutting board for 5-8 min.


Slice and enjoy!
