Directions

Combine the tequila, lime juice, orange juice, chili powder, jalepeno pepper, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add the chicken breasts. Refrigerate overnight.

Heat a grill with coals and brush the rack with oil to prevent the chicken from sticking. Remove the chicken breasts from the marinade, sprinkly well with salt & pepper, and grill them for about 5 minutes until nicely browned. Turn the chicken and cook for another 10 minutes until just cooked through. Remove from the grill to a plate. Cover tightly and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Serve hot or at room temp.
