Nothing rings in the Summer grilling season like Grilled Tequila Lime Chicken! Flavorful, cheesy, and simple. This copycat Applebee’s recipe is SO FLAVORFUL. Grill season here we come!
I may come from a line of fabulous cooks, but that doesn’t mean our family doesn’t ever eat out. In Missouri, there is an Applebee’s on every corner. It’s quick and inexpensive, and has a variety of menu items. Its an easy choice on busy days/nights. (don’t judge!) Applebee’s may not be classy, but they have this one entree there that might just be on my list of last meals. Fiesta Lime Chicken. I took the elements I love most from that dish, got a little inspired by this recipe on The Pioneer Woman (everything she does inspires me!), and my Grilled Tequila Lime Chicken was born. New favorite recipe alert!I made this recipe for part of a grilling series for Celebrations.com. I also made Mexican Grilled Corn, which was the perfect compliment to the chicken! Stay tuned for the grilled dessert! (YUM!)
The secret to this Tequila Lime Chicken (besides the tequila marinade…can’t go wrong with that!) is the three cheese ranch. Hidden under that colby jack is a layer of three cheese ranch ready to knock your socks off. Its a summer BBQ miracle. Serve with rice and Pico De Gallo and enjoy your summer! Delicious!
