  • 4 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/41/2 cup really good tequila (and 2 shots for you while you cook!)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 4 shakes of hot sauce (Tabasco)
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • Watermelon & Pineapple Salsa


  1. Combine all of the ingredients minus the chicken in a glass bowl mixing well.
  2. Add the chicken, cover and allow it to marinate for a half hour at room temp. Do not let this sit for more than 30 minutes as the acid in the juices will cook the chicken.
  3. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat.
  4. Remove chicken from marinade and discard any remaining marinade.
  5. Cook for 5-7 minutes each side or until the internal temperature is 165.
  6. Garnish with Watermelon & Pineapple Salsa.
