Tequila Lime Chicken Tacos


  • 4 boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1/2 cup Sauza Gold Tequila
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp orange zest
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 2 fresh lime wedges for serving
  • 4-6 corn tortillas
  • 1 avocado cut into slices


Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper on all sides.
Combine chicken, tequila, lime juice and orange zest
in small shallow dish. Cover and marinate at least
30 minutes and up to two hours, turning occasionally.

Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat) or preheat broiler.
Drain chicken; reserve marinade. Grill or broil until
just cooked through, occasionally basting chicken with some reserved marinade, about 4 minutes per side. Boil remaining marinade in small
saucepan 1 minute.

Cut each chicken breast crosswise into thin slices.
Arrange slices on platter. Garnish with lime wedges.
Serve chicken with tortillas, lime, avocado, and passing marinade seperately as sauce.
