Honey Tequila Lime Chicken

Honey Tequila Lime Chicken

Dinner, American, Tequila
Cooks in    Serves 4
Ingredients
  • 1 cup tequila
  • 6 limes
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion , chopped
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh cilantro , finely chopped
  • 2 lbs chicken breasts or 2 lbs chicken thighs or 2 lbs fish fillets
Directions
  • Mix all ingredients, except cilantro and meat in medium sauce pan.
  • Simmer over medium heat about 15 minutes or until onions are soft but not clear.
  • Cool completely. (Instead of adding water above, I add ice cubes at this stage.).
  • Place chicken in a baking pan and pour mixture over the chicken.
  • Marinade at least 1 hour, preferably over night. If the sauce doesn’t completely cover the meat, turn it over half way through.
  • If baking, pour out half the liquid and cover with finely chopped cilantro.
  • Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until meat is cooked through (depending on type of meat and size of pieces).
  • If grilling, then grill and add the cilantro after cooking.
