Tequila Lime Chicken

This is a recipe that is inspired loosely from a Rachael Ray recipe - I have changed it so much though that I relaly cant give her credit for it anymore though! Normally I make this with lemon and garlic only but felt like something different and it sure was good!

1.5 pounds chicken (I use the 'tenders' cut or you can get breasts and cut it yourself before cooking)

2-3 cloves garlic chopped

3 limes, squeezed

about 1/4 cup EVOO

about 1/2 cup tequila

Put it all in a small container with a tight lid and shake it WELL.

heat a pan big enough for the chicken to all be touching the pan to med high and place the strips on the HOT pan (not the liquid - discard it). cook about 4 min per side - it will be brown and crispy looking. Really good and I love that it imparts a nice flavor without having to marinate for a long time (i often dont have the time to do this or plan ahead enough)

I have been looking for a good marinade, I am going to try this and there is tequila in the freezer to be used. Thanks

Wow, this looks fantastic! My husband loves anything with lime, I need to put this one my "must try" list. :)
