    Belinda in Austin, TX's Note:

    I started with a copycat recipe, added more of my favorite (garlic salt) ingredient, and then made this for my son, as well as for my co-worker, who had just had a baby. Everyone's comment: "Wow! That was really tender, tasty chicken!" (I didn't tell them how incredibly easy it was!) I served it with my Mexican rice (another favorite)and black beans.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Marinate chicken in margarita mix, tequila, and garlic in refrigerator for several hours, or overnight. (I soaked it overnight, and it was really flavorful.).
    2. 2
      Remove chicken from marinade, and sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper.
    3. 3
      Preheat George Foreman or gas grill. Cook chicken just until cooked through (just until juices run clear-don't overcook, or it won't be as juicy).
    4. 4
      Serve with Mexican rice and black beans.
    5. 5
      Mexican Rice:.
    6. 6
      Cook rice in 1 tablespoon oil, until lightly browned.
    7. 7
      Add chicken broth, salsa, cumin, and garlic salt; cover pan and simmer for about 25 minutes, or until rice is tender.

      Wow!! I really liked this. I didn't use all the margartita mix because I didn't want it too sweet. It came out perfect. I will definately be making this often. Thanks!!

      I only made the chicken last night and the family and I both agreed that it was not our thing. I let it marinade overnight and that may have been a tad too much because the chicken was sweeter than we were used to (coming from the restaurant). I highly doubt I would try this again, but if I did I wouldn't let it soak for so long. 1 time hit and miss.

      This was really good. A quick and easy meal. The chicken was very tender, I will add a little extra seasoning next time. I added some minced garlic before adding the rice to the pot. Served with a mexican bean salad and really enjoyed, thank-you!
