    NetDiva Amy's Note:

    This is a quick marinade that's best on chicken but delicious on fish too. You can bake, BBQ or grill.

      This chicken was just terrific! I was surprised by the strong presence of the chili powder but it really worked with the tangy tequila/lime and the sweet honey. I marinated boneless skinless chicken breasts for about 6 hours, then grilled them and they were very tender and very flavorful. This was a great chicken marinade that I will definitely use again - thanks for posting!
