I can’t believe that May is next week, this year has gone really fast. Next week is Cinco de Mayo. This chicken is a perfect meal for Cinco de Mayo. It has a really good mix of saltiness and sweetness. Make sure that you add the salt because otherwise the chicken will be really sweet.
This is easy to make, it is a simple marinade and then the chicken is grilled. This meal is also perfect for this time of year, since it is grilled. We love to grill outside as much as we can once the weather starts to get warm. This chicken was really good and make a really good meal.
(Recipe adapted from Real Mom Kitchen)
5 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 can (10 ounces) frozen non-alcoholic margarita mix, thawed
1 tablespoon lime juice concentrate
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1. In a small bowl, combine the margarita mix, lime juice, lemon juice, and garlic. Pour 1 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag. Save the remaining marinade and refrigerate until grilling. Add the chicken into the bag and make sure to coat the chicken with the marinade. Refrigerate for at least one hour. Rotate halfway through marinading.
2. Discard the marinade from the bag. Sprinkle the chicken with the salt and pepper. Using long-handled tongs, dip a paper towel in cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill the chicken, covered, over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until the chicken has an internal temperature of 160 degrees. Baste frequently with the reserved marinade.
