    This is a taste sensation and great grilling recipe. My sister served this at a family cookout. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and clamored for the recipe. (Plan ahead, needs to marinade)

      Very good, moist, flavorful chicken. The next time I make it, I think I'll add a little more tequila, though. The 2 T wasn't enough to really make the taste come through. Like other reviewers, we used boneless, skinless chicken also.

      This is fantastic! I too used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and they turned out moist and delicious. I made this at the end of the summer last year; I can't wait for grilling season to come back so I can make this again.

      Very nice. I made this with boneless/skinless chicken breasts and the chicken was super tender. I will increase the spice next time as I didn't find this had much of a kick but it was very flavorful and moist. Will make again.
