Get your grill going!
Because ~ this grilled chicken will make your mouth water!This zesty chicken is marinated in tequila, lime, and pineapple juices, with a good dose of garlic and minced jalapeño, providing additional seasoning.
The marinade tenderizes the chicken, making it moist and flavor-packed. It’s a perfect marinade that’s not as hot and spicy as it sounds.
Serve with buttered corn on the cob to make it even more enjoyable!
Speaking of corn on the cob, growing up on the farm, we always called it “sweet corn,” and sweet it is now! Am I the only one who thinks it is way much “sweeter” now than it used to be???
