Margarita Chicken

We love to try anything new on the grill. This was a winner. The chicken was very moist & had the tangiest flavor.

1 can (10 ounces) frozen non-alcoholic margarita mix, thawed
3 tbsp lime juice
3 garlic cloves, minced
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

In a small bowl, combine the margarita mix, lime juice & garlic. Pour 1 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag. Add the chicken; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 2-4 hours. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade. Drain & discard marinade. Sprinkle chicken with salt & pepper. Grill chicken over medium heat basting frequently with reserved marinade.

Freezer Directions
Place chicken in freezer ziploc bag. Mix marinade ingredients and put 1 cup marinade in a seperate freezer bag, pour remaining over the chicken. Freeze falt.  To serve, thaw and prepare as directed.
