Classic fresh margarita flavors take a spin on the grill with these succulent chicken breasts.

Ingredients

1
orange
1
lime
2
tablespoons tequila
1
tablespoon honey
1
tablespoon vegetable oil
1
package (0.85 oz) Old El Paso™ chicken taco seasoning mix
4
boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 1/2 lb)
2
tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
Cooked white rice, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. Grate 1/2 teaspoon peel from orange; grate 1/2 teaspoon peel from lime. Cut orange and lime in half; set aside.
  • 2 In gallon-size resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix orange and lime peels, tequila, honey, oil and taco seasoning mix. Add chicken; seal bag. Shake until chicken is evenly coated. Refrigerate at least 10 minutes but no longer than 2 hours.
  • 3 Place chicken on grill over medium heat. Discard any remaining marinade. Cover grill; cook 12 to 15 minutes, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F). Let stand 5 minutes.
  • 4 Meanwhile, place halved orange and lime, cut sides down, on grill. Cook 3 to 6 minutes, until cut side is charred. Cool slightly, then cut into wedges.
  • 5 Top chicken with cilantro; serve with charred citrus wedges and rice.
Tips  

Obviously, the best pairing for this meal is its namesake -- serve with a cool, fresh margarita!

Want even more authentic tequila flavor? Use agave nectar in place of the honey.
