Started from a Kroger Helpful Hint- It always gives chicken that is good, juicy, and tender. Make sure to serve REAL margaritas along with it.

YUM! I added in some juice from some key limes I had left over from Key Lime Margaritas... Also, I saved out the extra marinade and made it into a sauce by adding agave syrup for sweetness, 2-3 T butter, key lime juice (3 limes-they are very small), the zest of 1 key lime, fresh ground pepper and sea salt. I cooked it down so there was some thickness to it, then added about 1-2 T of Tequila before chilling until use...basted and grilled the chicken--YUM!

You're right. This did make the chicken extremely tender and juicy. I loved getting souced on margaritas while making the sauce.
