From The Culinary Couple | Source The Pioneer Woman


  • 3 whole limes, juiced
  • 5 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 whole jalapeño, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • 1/2 cup tequila
  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, grated
  • Pico de gallo


  1. Combine lime juice, garlic cloves, sliced jalapeño, salt, cilantro, and tequila in a food processor or blender. Pulse until combined. Turn on the blender/food processor and drizzle in the olive oil until it’s all combined.
  2. Place chicken breasts in a plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Seal bag and marinate for several hours or overnight.
  3. When ready to cook, remove chicken from bag and place it on the grill. Cook until completely done.
  4. Serve topped with grated cheese and pico de gallo. (Sour cream and avocado would also be tasty).
