Steph and G's Tequila Chicken

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by acedogcottoncat

Steph conjured this in Mexico and G mixed around in NC. It is good. Served over rice (cooked in vegetable broth) is fantastic.

This was a really fresh tasting meal, not loaded with salt or a bunch of seasonings to cover up the freshness of the ingredients. I did not have any limes on hand as I usually do but subbed a tablespoon of Triple Sec. Next time I will make sure I have limes as I can imagine the juice will make it even fresher tasting. Maybe also add jalapeno next time, too. Entertainingly written but one suggestion: maybe edit to add the actual time frames in parenthesis next to the movie time frames. Thanks!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients in an oven safe bowl.
  2. Start a movie (I chose Hitchcock's Notorious).
  3. At the end flip the chicken and preheat the oven to 350°.
  4. Put in The Philadelphia Story to officially declare a Cary Grant evening.
  5. During the library scene throw the chicken and tomatoes in the oven.
  6. Check the oven every 15 minutes or so to flip the chicken and tomatoes.
  7. The meal should be ready before the movie is over.
  8. For dessert watch It Happened One Night.
  9. If you want to do it all in one movie (including dessert) choose Around the World in 80 days (1956 of course).
