Tequila Citrus Marinade

This marinade is one of the best I've had in awhile, it's easy & fast to prepare and gives your meat or seafood the taste you can find in restaurants!

I used to marinate boneless, skinless chicken breast. You could use on chicken, beef, shrimp or other seafood. This marinade would probably be delightful for grilled vegies too!

I grilled my chicken but I'm sure you can cook your protein in the oven or in a skillet as well.  Maybe even give the slow cooker a try.

  • 1 c. Gold Tequila
  • 1 Lemon
  • 4 Limes
  • 2 Oranges
  • 1-2 Tbsp Chili Powder
  • 4 cloves of garlic (more or less as you prefer)
  • Protein (Beef, Chicken, Shrimp etc)

  1. Use a gallon zip lock bag or vacuum seal bag.
  2. Juice the lemon, limes & oranges and add to bag.
  3. Add remaining ingredients to bag and blend.
  4. Add your protein (chicken, beef, shrimp etc), move the bag around with your hands to make sure everything is well covered.
  5. Close or seal your bag, place in fridge and marinade at least 4 hours, overnight is best.
  6. Grill, bake or cook as you prefer until done.
  7. Discard remaining marinade.

Marinade covered 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast well.
