Healthy Diet #2 - Grilled Margarita Chicken


1/2 cup orange juice
3 tablespoon tequila
1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced (wear gloves to prevent irritation)
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoon grated lime zest
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 teaspoon chili powder
4 (1/4 - pound) skinless boneless chicken thighs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Combine the orange juice, tequila, jalapeno, garlic, lime zest and juice, oil, and chili powder in a large zip-close plastic bag; add the chicken. Squeeze out the air and seal the bag; turn to coat the chicken. Refrigerate, turning the bag occasionally, at least 8 hours or up to overnight.

Spray the grill rack with nonstick spray; preheat the grill to medium or prepare a medium fire

Remove the chicken from the marinade and shake off the excess marinade. Discard the marinade. Sprinkle the chicken with the salt and pepper; place on the grill rack. Grill until cooked through 6-7 minutes on each side.
