Tequila Lime Chicken


I found this recipe at My Clean Kitchen which is the brain child of Sara Christopherson and Jessica Warrens. The recipe called for fresh coriander which I didn’t have so I made a few changes to the recipe.

The recipe below is as posted at My Clean Kitchen. Below is my changes.

I moved from the UK to France in 2005, gave up my business and with my husband, Paul, and two sons converted a small cottage in rural Brittany to our home   Half Acre Farm.  It was here after years of ready meals and take aways in the UK I realised that I could cook. Paul also learned he could grow vegetables and plant fruit trees; we also keep our own poultry for meat and eggs. Shortly after finishing the work on our house we was featured in a magazine called Breton and since then Ive been featured in a few magazines for my food.  My two sons now have their own families but live near by and Im now the proud grandmother of two little boys. Both of my daughter in laws are both great cooks.  My cooking is home cooking, but often with a French twist, my videos are not there to impress but inspire, So many people say that they cant cook, but we all can, you just got to give it a go.Ingredients

1 lb chicken tenders, preferably pasture raised

1/4-1/2 cup good tequila

2 limes, juiced and zested

Sea salt, to taste

Fresh ground black pepper, to taste

1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

Instructions

In a large bowl combine the chicken tenders, tequila and lime juice. Toss to make sure all the chicken pieces are well coated. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator. Allow to marinate for at least 1 hour.

    • After the chicken has marinated remove from the fridge. Place on a plate and season with salt and pepper.
    • Heat the grill to medium high heat. Place the chicken on the grill. Allow to cook for 4-5 minutes. Carefully flip the chicken, being sure not to allow it to tear.
    • Continue to cook until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F, about 3-4 minutes.
    • Remove and place on a clean plate or serving dish. Garnish with lime zest and fresh chopped cilantro.n

So this is what I did;

Squeeze out the limes but hold on to the peels.

Put the chicken, lime and Tequila into a freezer bag and put in the fridge, I left mine marinating for 3 hours.

Now for my changes, I made a salad of lettuce, Basil and Parsley (all from my garden), put a teaspoon of coriander into homemade fresh natural yoghurt, added wedges of lemon and lime then grated the lime peel over the lot.
