Happy Cinco de Mayo eve!
I’m feeling a lot better (finally!) and super excited to share with you this easy and delicious chicken marinade recipe that’s just perfect for tomorrow’s festivities. If you’re like me, you’re always looking for new marinade recipes because, well, chicken on it’s own can be kinda boring. And no one wants boring chicken! Yuck. Well marinade lovers, this one’s for you.
This recipe is also for you if you were just looking for an excuse to hit the bottle a liiiiiiiiittle bit early.
Allow me to be the cool, calm and collected voice of reason.
The voice that is telling you to go get your tequila bottle, make this marinade and then have a margarita. I mean, the ingredients are already out! It must be done.
Actually, you should probably make a margarita first….then make this marinade. You wouldn’t want raw chicken hands near your cocktail (I told you I was the voice of reason).
If you are under 21, please disregard this message and don’t tell your mother on me.
You can grill this chicken outside or use your handy dandy grill pan like me. The finished product is perfect on it’s own with a side of black beans, sliced avocado and Mexican rice OR thinly sliced and stuffed into your choice of a Mexican delight. Tacos…fajitas…burritos….get crazy!
As always, please marinade responsibly.
