Margarita Chicken for a Music Inspired #SundaySupper

Happy Sunday y’all! It’s time to tie on our aprons and get cooking in the kitchen for Sunday Supper! This week the theme is all about finding your groove. Get ready to tap your toes, start swinging your hips, and sing along because this week the crew is sharing all their favorite Music Inspired Recipes. I spent last weekend cleaning every nook and cranny of my new to me Margaritaville margarita machine, so of course I had to celebrate with a little Jimmy Buffet, some margaritas, and Margarita Chicken!

Margarita Chicken Music Inspired Sunday Supper

This chicken was very simple to make, plus I loved throwing it on the grill.  I like my Sunday Suppers easy y’all!  I couldn’t find the frozen margarita mix the original Margarita Chicken recipe called for, so I used Limeade concentrate.  I thought about using the bottle of margarita mix that I have in the house, but didn’t for two reasons.  First…the bottled mix I use already has the alcohol in it, not good for kids since I didn’t think it would “grill out”.  Second…ummm…it’s MY margarita mix.  If I use it to make the chicken, there will be less margaritas to drink with my chicken dinner!

Margarita Chicken Inspired by Margaritaville

I love, love, love this machine.  The ice consistency is perfect, and the kids are happily enjoying their multiple flavored sno-cones.  OK, wait.  Wasn’t I talking about chicken?  Oh yeah…Margarita Chicken!

To be honest, this recipe lacked a little intensity in the flavor department after it was grilled.  We all agreed it could have packed more of a punch.  I squeezed a slice of lime on mine, and I liked it better, however, next time I make it, I will be looking for ways to really brighten the flavor.  Maybe by adding more lime zest, or an additional spice blend, I can liven up the taste to where I was expecting it to be.  Until then though, grab your salt shaker, and dance on over to check out all of the other fabulous music inspired recipes by the other Sunday Supper foodies.  Trust me. You will be humming all the way to the grocery store with a shopping list for all the recipes you will want to make.
