Stove Top Margarita Chicken With Fresh Corn Relish

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Berts Kitchen Witch

I love Margarita Chicken, but I wanted to come up with a way to do it inside during times when the weather prohibits out-door grilling. This is what I ended up with. (Times do not include Marination.)

The thing I love about this recipe is the Corn Relish - colorful, zesty, flavorful. When it came to the chicken, I have to admit that I had a hard time using a full cup of tequila in a marinade, knowing that most of it would be thrown away! After marinating, I used a stove-top grill pan to do my chicken and the flavors were nice and tangy.

  2. Marinate chicken overnight, or at least 8 hours.
  3. When ready to cook, heat butter in a large skillet.
  4. Add chicken breasts and brown for 5-6 minutes per side.
  5. Pour in about 1/2 cup of the marinade,cover, and cook over medium heat for about 15-20 minutes, until chicken is done, checking and turning chicken once, halfway through.
  6. Meanwhile, mix together corn relish ingredients, and stir well to blend.
  7. When chicken is done, place on a serving platter, with the corn relish, over the top of all, or on the side, however you prefer.
