Chili's Margarita Grilled Chicken Recipe

"This is delicious and easy! I like to make this on the weekends beause I can marinate the Chicken while I am busy doing other things. Serve with rice and black beans for a quick weekend meal, much cheaper than going out to eat too!"

  • Pour margarita mix over chicken breasts, and marinate for 2 hours in refrigerator.

    What is the garlic powder for? The marinade or for the moment of grilling the chicken?

    This chicken has more flavor than the chicken served at Chili's. We marinated for 3 hours instead of 2 hours. We used light Margarita mix as well (only 5 calories per cup). We served with Lipton's Knorr Fiesta Sides "Spanish Rice", a can of black beans mixed with 1/4 cup of medium Picante sauce, and 1 tablespoon of store-bought pico de gallo for garnish. After running the numbers, the whole meal was only about 7 weight watchers points per serving. Very delicious, and awfully healthy, too! Will most definitely make again :).

    I made this for when friends came over. It was a big hit, they got the recipe so they can make it.

    This is awesome. Made homemade Pico de Gallo. Put on top of spaNish rice and black beans. So good. I like some sliced avacado with mine. You must try it. So easy to make.


I am happily married to my best friend and we just bought our first house! No kids but we have 2 little dogs that we think the world of. I was born in California and although I have been on the East Coast for most of my life I am still displaced! I love the beach and hate the cold! In our free time we love to go to the beach or the mountains and hike or intertube down the lazy Shenendoah River. It is so beautiful there! I have loved to cook all of my life and will read cookbooks like they are novels!
