Tequila-Lime Chicken

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by BearsFanJeff

Grilled chicken breasts with a light, fresh marinade. These are great right off the grill or the breasts can be sliced for chicken fajitas.

Excellent. The flavor combination was so good. I didn't change a thing about it and I had the most delicious, tender flavorful chicken that I used to make fajitas with. I pan fried it for simplicity and that worked well for me. I marinated my chicken about 5 hours. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. I'll be making this one again
