Margarita Chicken

Submitted by: RAVYNELF

Introduction

From my friend, Sarah -- this is oh so good!! You may substitute seafood for chicken.... prawns, scallops, calamari, abalone also you can use pre-made margarita mix with the Jose Cuervo. If you don’t have the triple sec and tequila. You can also use Pico de Gallo to save on chopping. From my friend, Sarah -- this is oh so good!!
