Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup margarita mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  • Pour margarita mix over chicken breast and let marinate for 2 hours in the refrigerator. 
  • When ready to prepare drain and dust with black pepper to taste. If you do not have a grill use an iron skillet and bring to medium-high temperature and spray an oil coating into pan and braise chicken breast until done on each side. The chicken should cook for about 5 to 7 minutes on each side. 
  • Place chicken breast on top of black beans and serve with a serving of your favorite Mexican rice and a generous helping of Pico de Gallo.

Recipe Tips

  • Do not marinate the chicken for more than 2 hours, the protein will begin to break down.
  • Discard all extra marinade, it can not be used again.
  • If the chicken breasts are very large, consider slicing horizontally to cut down the portion size.
  • Serve left over chicken on a salad.
