Recipe: Fusion Grilled Chicken

Pull out the grill one last time before winter and and give this savory marinade a shot!

Now that we’ve made it through Hurricane Sandy and the sun is finally shining, I thought this would be the perfect weekend to cook out one last time before putting the grill away for the winter.

This recipe offers grilled chicken with a savory marinade that combines fresh lime juice and chipotle chile.

So pull out the grill one last time and give this Fusion Grilled Chicken a shot!

Start by pounding the chicken to 1/4-inch thickness. In a shallow dish, whisk oil, tequila, lime juice, hot sauce, Worcestershire, ginger, chile, and salt. Reserve 1/3 cup of this marinade, then put the chicken in dish, turn to coat, and marinate 30 minutes.

Then grill chicken over medium heat (you can hold your hand 1 to 2 inches above grill level only 4 to 5 seconds), turning once, until cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes total.

In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, simmer reserved marinade until reduced to 1/4 cup, about 2 minutes. Whisk in the cream, then remove from heat. Serve chicken drizzled with sauce and garnished with cilantro, if you like. Serve extra sauce and a green salad on the side.

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/2 cup garlic-infused olive oil (see notes)
  • 2 tablespoons each tequila and fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground dried chipotle chile
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Chopped cilantro (optional)
