      This was an easy recipe to put together. I did do 2 things different: first I grilled the chicken and I didn't add the butter. The chicken was very moist but it just didn't have the flavor we were hoping for. Next time I'll try it with 1 1/4 cup margarita mix, 1/2 cup of tequila, 1/2 cup of triple sec /oj and leave the rest of the seasoning the same. I will update when we have made it again. Made for Spring PAC 2008
