Margarita Grilled Chicken

This Margarita Grilled Chicken features a marinade made from your favorite margarita recipe.  This is a great recipe to serve on the back deck during the summer…with a batch of homemade margaritas, of course!

Margarita Grilled Chicken: This grilled chicken is marinated in your favorite margarita ingredients!Is there anything better than sitting on the back deck enjoying a warm summer evening?  Well, actually, there is.  It’s sitting on the back deck with a cold margarita in one hand.  No wait, one more.  It’s sitting on the back deck with a cold margarita in one hand and a plate full of Margarita Grilled Chicken in the other!

Margarita Grilled Chicken: This grilled chicken is marinated in your favorite margarita ingredients!How do you prefer your margaritas?  Are you a frozen kind of margarita person?  Or do you opt for the on-the-rocks version?  Personally, I almost always go on-the-rocks when it comes to margaritas.  There’s something about the frozen version that gives me brain-freeze.  But either way, I need a lot of salt on the rim.  A well-salted rim is the best part of a delicious margarita!  Now that I think about it, that salted rim is a bit odd, isn’t it?  I mean, what other common food/drink features a thick layer of salt?  It reminds me of those salt licks that horses have out in the pastures!  But you know, I’m ok with it.  I love a good salt lick.  I just prefer mine on the rim of a margarita rather than in the pasture.

Margarita Grilled Chicken: This grilled chicken is marinated in your favorite margarita ingredients!I almost always marinate chicken before putting it on the grill.  Sure, it takes a couple minutes to make the marinade.  Sure, you have to plan ahead a bit.  But the results are totally worth the minimal amount of additional effort!  Say goodbye to boring, dry grilled chicken.  Say hello to one of the best summer meals ever!  Just like a classic margarita, this marinade features plenty of lime juice and tequila.  There’s a hint of agave syrup in there, and I also added some traditional marinade ingredients like garlic and cilantro for a boost of flavor.  The result is a fun, grilled recipe that is perfect to serve to company on the back deck…just make sure to save enough tequila for the margaritas!

  3. Wait – so your are inviting Becca to dinner – but not me!!!! The Nerve I tell you!!!!

    YUM! Luv luv luv the agave and cilantro mixed into that margarita marinade!
    I don’t drink, so I might have to replace the margarita with a protein shake but don’t think I will replace anything about this chicken! See yall at 6!

    • Hahahaha! You know you always have a standing invitation to join me for dinner. No fighting, ladies, there’s plenty of chicken to go around! :-) And the protein shake idea would be pretty good I bet. I’m always down for something on the grill!

  4. I’m impressed, I never thought Belgians were good at making grilled chicken.
    I believed you guys were only good at making chocolate, waffles and ale…who knew???

  5. I’ll never look at salted rim the same. I’ll be thinking of horses licking salt blocks. Ha
    This chicken sounds amazing. Love the flavors and the tequila :D

    • Hahaha! Well I certainly didn’t mean to ruin margaritas for you, Cindy! Just think about it…horses love those salt licks, so therefore it’s ok for us to love salted rims on margarita glasses. How’s that logic? :-)
