Tequila Lime Chicken

Jim came up with this really easy marinade for chicken and it was quite good! We ate it with a side of mashed potatoes and a side of roasted red peppers and yellow squash.

1 lime, juiced
3 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 oz. tequila
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Mix together the lime juice, olive oil, tequila and cayenne pepper in a gallon size Ziploc bag. Place chicken inside bag and coat thoroughly. Let marinate in fridge for 30-60 minutes; not too long because the lime juice will start to break down the chicken. Remove chicken from bag, season both sides with salt and pepper and grill until cooked through.
