Chilis Margarita Grilled Chicken Perfect for Grilling

Are you looking for the perfect way to prepare chicken on the grill? Marinating this chicken in your favorite Margarita mix is the ideal solution for flavoring chicken. Margarita mix adds a wonderful citrus flavor to the chicken. The Margarita mix also makes the chicken wonderfully tender.

Do not marinate the chicken for more than two hours. If the chicken is in the Margarita mix for too long, the chicken can become mushy and stringy. So you don’t need to marinate the chicken for too long.

    I keep looking for the rice that they serve with this and other meals at Chili’s. It’s my favorite! I can’t find that recipe anywhere! Sure wish someone would try copy-catting that one! I’ve tried but can’t figure it out. Would appreciate it greatly! Thanks!

    I just had this dish today, and this recipe doesn’t seem to describe the Margarita sauce they served with my food. Loved it! Not spicy, a hint of sweet, a rather light taste. Yum! I’ll keep looking for the recipe. I don’t think this is it.

    All of those who thinks this has no flavor are correct because the recipe is lacking an important ingredient…1/4 cup of tequila in the marinade mix. Try it…it makes a huge difference!

      According to the Copycat Cookbook it is prepared as follows: 2 (15.5 oz) cans black beans, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, 1/2 teaspoon chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder. Combine all this in a saucepan and stir well. Let simmer for 20-25 minutes. Makes 8 servings.
