Barefoot Contessa's Tequila Lime Chicken

Can someone post this recipe? I've seen in mentioned several times but never a recipe for it.

Is Barefoot Contessa a person? Sounds like a harlot name.

Here you go:

I like to finish it off by melting some shredded mexican cheese on top with crumbled crisp bacon and green scallions.

outstanding. Your topping sounds delicious. I'm adding those things too. You have my thanks. I'll give this one a try.

I don't drink at all so I'm not sure about "gold" tequila. Is that a brand name or a type of tequila?

Since I don't drink my options with the tequila will be to either purchase a very small bottle (if available) or try to find a drinking friend who might have some.. Otherwise I would have to try it without the Tequila.

Would you mind describing the predominate flavors in this dish along with what the tequila adds to the mixture? My wife has disliked a few dishes we've made with alcohol for ingredients. Better safe than sorry.

You are very welcome. When the season is right try grilling some corn on the cob.....make a chili powder butter to baste it with. I then serve it with a Spring Blend Salad (prepackaged).

By all means you can leave out the Tequilla. Heck, most of the time we don't have any in our house and I just play around with the recipe and use whatever I have. You will def. taste the tequilla flavor if you use the recipe above, along with a citrusy and spicy blend.

The first time I made it I went strictly by the recipe.....it was wonderful that way but sometimes I don't always have all the ingredients on hand and have to compromise....and every way I've come up with so far is just as good.

Sometimes I add the tequilla sometimes not. Occassionally I don't have a jalapeno so I'll used red pepper flakes. Sometimes I use lemon and lime instead.

Its one of those recipes that you can def. play around with.

Oh and I forgot. Sometimes the citrus at the stores just isn't that great and I've occassionally substituted bottled lime and lemon and it worked out. Fresh is always the best though and if possible go that route.

I have made this many times. It started getting expensive since I was needing to use so much tequila. I started freezing the liquid to use once or twice before I toss it. Does anyone else do this?

I didn't think it was safe to save marinades that have had meat soaking in them?
