“This grilled chicken recipe is the perfect compliment of sweet and savory. This recipe pairs well with grilled vegetables or a nice, light spinach salad. Start the grill, light your tiki torches, and let this recipe whisk you away to the tropics!” - by Mommy Epstein
Original recipe yields 6 chicken breasts
- Whisk together the tequila, 2 tablespoons of lime juice, brown sugar, and cayenne pepper; pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add the chicken breasts, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
- Meanwhile, make the sauce by whisking together the sour cream , coconut milk, and 1/4 cup of lime juice in a bowl. Add the cilantro and garlic, then season to taste with salt and pepper; set aside.
- Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil grate. Remove the chicken from the marinade, and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade.
- Cook the chicken and pineapple slices on the preheated grill until the chicken is no longer pink in the center, and the pineapple slices are nicely marked, about 6 minutes. Serve the chicken breasts topped with a slice of grilled pineapple, and a dollop of the sour cream sauce.

"This dish was amazing. at first i was somewhat worried becuase i dont like the taste of tequilla, but once the chicken is grilled the flav. is so good even on its own, then adding the grilled pinapple..." See more and sauce, well that put it over the top, sweet yet tangy all in one bite, oh so good. we will definatly be making this one again. "
"I made skewers instead of the method suggested here. I also added some coconut oil to the marinade and used curry paste instead of cayenne pepper. When finished I served it with some avocado. FABOULOU..." See moreS!!! I suggest this recipe for a nice tropical treat."
"This is a great recipe. For such a quick and easy prep, the flavor layers are delicious and complex. My husband loved it, and he thinks most chicken recipes are boring. I substituted a sweet white win..." See moree for the tequila in the marinade, and omitted the brown sugar. Next time I might add a little cumin to the marinade. Sauce was a snap in the food processor. It would be good on many other dishes, including vegetables. Kids loved it, too."
