For the Chicken and Marinade:

  • 2 large chicken breasts (I butterfly these and make them into 4 thin breasts)
  • 1/4 cup tequila
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder

For the Glaze:

  • 3 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

For the Mango Salsa:

  • 1 mango cubed
  • 1/2 red onion diced
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1/2 jalapeno minced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro roughly chopped

  1. Whisk all marinade ingredients together
  2. Put chicken in a plastic bag and pour the marinade over the chicken, making sure to coat all sides Remove air from the bag and seal. Leave on the counter for 20-30 minutes or if you have longer, throw the bag into the refrigerator
  3. Combine all ingredients for mango salsa, cover and refrigerate until ready to use
  4. Mix together honey lime glaze and set aside
  5. Heat grill to medium-high for about 10 minutes. Add the marinated chicken and discard the marinade
  6. Cook each breast for about 4-6 minutes on each side, depending on thickness
  7. After you flip the chicken once, brush the glaze onto the chicken
  8. Transfer chicken to a plate and cover to keep hot and brush more glaze on both sides right before serving
  9. Top chicken with mango salsa and enjoy!
