2 whole chickens (cut into pieces)

1 cup fresh cilantro (chopped)

3/4 cup fresh lime juice

1 cup tequila

3 tbsp. light brown sugar (firmly packed)

2 tbsp. garlic (minced)

2 tsp. sea salt

3 tsp. grated lime zest


1. In a large bowl add cilantro, lime juice, tequila, brown sugar, garlic, sea salt and lime zest. Mix well.

2. In a large bowl or pan put chicken. Pour tequila marinade over it. Make sure all pieces are covered in marinade. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours. (Overnight is better.)

3. There are two options for cooking. You can barbecue chicken on a grill or bake in a 400 degree oven for about 40 minutes. Chicken should be white on the inside when cooked.
