One thing I miss about living in Southern Ontario is being close to the Detroit border and going to Mexican Village. I used to love going there and having great Mexican food and the best strawberry margaritas in there world.
So every once in awhile I make some Mexican food myself because I just miss it. This is not to say we don’t have any Mexican restaurants here in Calgary, because we do, but it’s just not the same as Mexican Village in Detroit.
Now what’s the main ingredient in margaritas? Tequila of course, so I marinated this chicken in a tequila and lime marinade, which if you’ve never tried, it’s to die for. The flavor in this chicken is fantastic, the chicken comes out so moist and so delicious, it’s a party in your mouth.
You do have to marinate the chicken for a few hours, so be patient, it’s so worth it. One thing I should mention is that this chicken would be great if you grilled it, but our grill is not working now, so I pan seared my chicken in a bit of olive oil. It was still just as good.
To keep in theme with the tequila lime chicken, I thought a cilantro and lime rice would be a perfect side. I was right, it was amazing. My picky husband who hates rice and pasta dishes was in love with this dish and could not stop eating it. So give this dish a try, next time you’re in the mood for a refreshing and healthy meal. It goes great with a strawberry margarita or a mojito.
