Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 5 ounces each)
1/2 cup tequila
2 1/2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Grated zest and juice from 1 medium lime

Instructions

Preheat broiler. Pound chicken breasts slightly to flatten. In a medium, non-metal bowl, combine tequila, honey, cumin and lime juice. Stir to mix well. Add chicken breasts and turn several times to coat. Let stand 15-20 minutes. Place chicken on broiler pan. Broil about 4 inches from heat source, turning once and basting several times with marinade for the first 5 minutes, until chicken is browned on the outside and white in the center, about 8 minutes total.
