What to eat Wednesday- Margarita Chicken

(I'm back.)

While we were in Colorado for Spring Break- we ate, and we ate and we ate. It is always wonderful to eat my mother-in-law's cooking! This trip, Jay's Mom made the most moist tender tangy chicken. The secret ingredient?

Margarita Drink Mix!

You mix the margarita mix (about 1 1/2 cups) with a little ground cumin (1 teaspoon) and some lime peel (also 1 teaspoon.) Then you add the chicken breasts (this recipe is for 4) and let it marinate for 2-8 hours. Or in my case, two days. Still turned out great!
Then grill.

So easy.

Then you add the dipping sauce. A great compliment to the chicken.
1/2 cup mayo
2 TB lime juice
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Just remember that this is dipping sauce for the grilled chicken. Not ranch dip.
Kids at play group won't complain, but they won't necessarily eat it with carrots, when you accidentally bring it for snack time.

Made it, loved it. Thanks.

Plus, I did enjoy the strange look one lady gave me when I picked up the bottle of Margarita mix with my 7 month pregnant belly.
