Chicken Cinco De Mayo Style
A lime sugar rub and a lemon/lime marinade make this chicken sweet and tangy. Add some tequila and you've got a great entree for the May holiday.
This weekend I was lucky enough to meet Louise Mellor at a food blogging event I attended called Camp Blogaway. She made this wonderful lime sugar for a watermelon limeade, and I got to thinking how great that lime sugar would be as a rub for chicken or meat. Then I remembered that tomorrow's Cinco de Mayo and nothing's better on this spring holiday than a margarita. And while I know margaritas are usually served with salt, this lime sugar actually pairs quite nicely with the tequila and chicken.
Now, I know that tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo but you need to marinate this chicken overnight. While that may seem like a pain, the end result is so worth it. The chicken is sweet and sour just like a margarita and has a nice tequila kick. So serve it up tomorrow with actual margaritas or your favorite Mexican beer and celebrate in style.
