When enjoying margaritas, use a bit of the mix to marinate cut-up chicken. It's tart and refreshing!
cup liquid nonalcoholic margarita mix
tablespoons lime juice
clove garlic, finely chopped
3-to 3 1/2-pound cut-up broiler-fryer chicken
teaspoon coarse salt
Mix margarita mix, lime juice and garlic in resealable heavy-duty plastic food-storage bag. Add chicken; seal bag and turn to coat with marinade. Refrigerate, turning bag occasionally, at least 1 hour but no longer than 24 hours. Remove chicken from marinade; reserve marinade.
Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Place chicken, skin sides up, on grill. Brush with marinade; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. Cover and grill 5 to 6 inches from medium heat 15 minutes; turn chicken. Brush with remaining marinade; sprinkle with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cover and grill 20 to 40 minutes longer, turning occasionally, until juice of chicken is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut.
This marinade also works nicely with boneless skinless chicken breast halves. Cover and grill chicken 8 to 10 minutes, brushing frequently with marinade and turning once, until chicken is no longer pink in center.
