Your Friday meal plan is officially taken care of. You may still have to load up the dishwasher, but the menu is done and yum! October 4th might be National Vodka Day, but it’s also National Taco Day.
But if you’re going to host a get-together, (as you most definitely should!) don’t depress your guests with boring tortilla shells filled with plain ground beef and sad, sad shredded cheese. It’s just not what you do on a day devoted to the art of a tasty taco! Any taco aficionado knows that the dinner plate must include a little zest and plenty of kick.
Sauza Tequila came up with these amazing lime-infused chicken tacos, and you’ve got to give them a test. And hey, maybe make yourself a margarita on the side.
Sauza Tequila Lime Chicken Tacos
4 Boneless Chicken Breast Halves
1/2 cup Sauza Gold Tequila
1/2 cup Fresh Lime Juice
2 Tbs Orange Zest
Salt to Taste
Pepper to Taste
2 Fresh Lime Wedges
4-6 Warm Corn Tortillas
1 Avocado Cut Into Slices
Directions: Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on all sides. Combine the chicken, tequila, lime juice, and orange zest in a small shallow dish. Next, cover and marinate at least 30 minutes and up to two hours, turning occasionally.
Prepare barbecue (on medium to high heat) or preheat broiler. Next, drain chicken and reserve the marinade. Grill or broil the chicken until just cooked through, occasionally basting chicken with some reserved marinade. Do this about four minutes per side. Boil the remaining marinade in small saucepan for one minute.
Cut each chicken breast crosswise into thin slices. Arrange the slices on a platter. Garnish with lime wedges and serve chicken with tortillas, lime, avocado, and passing marinade separately as sauce.
