Very tasty sauce, but I'm going to try grilling the chicken next time - didn't really like the way it worked under the broiler... also, double the sauce would be good too.

This sauce is the BEST! We added fresh cilantro (and extra Tequila!). Grill instead of broil, then pour sauce on. Great on steak or fish filets, too.

Very nice flavor, however the meat was a little tough. Next time, will try to cut some slits on the breast so it cooks faster.
