Tequila, lime and salt. A great shot and, believe it or not, also a great marinade for chicken.
Everyone has an epic tequila story — most of them funny, some of them shocking and many of them ending with people swearing off tequila forever. There is something about tequila that brings out things in people no other alcohol does.
But fear not, after eating this chicken you will not black out and wake up in Tijuana with a new tattoo and a fresh scar where your kidney used to be. The tequila is just there for flavor and most of the alcohol burns off during cooking. However, if you are so inclined, these tacos go pretty well with tequila shots while assembling the next taco.
Rather than put all the tacos together and serve, I place all of the ingredients on the table and have everyone assemble their own according to what they like, which helps to keep the tacos from getting soggy and falling apart. I like to set out shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, cilantro, shredded cheese, salsa, guacamole, hot sauce, tortillas and, of course, sliced chicken.
