We can’t think of a better reason to enjoy a margarita than with these tequila chicken thighs. With a sauce inspired by the classic cocktail (seriously), you’ll also have the ingredients on hand to mix one up while you cook and dine on this easy-to-make weeknight dinner.
To make these chicken thighs, you’ll want to marinate the chicken in the tequila mixture for at least 20 minutes. Then after cooking the thighs, use the same skillet to turn the marinade into a rich sauce. If you feel like grilling, these chicken thighs are also fantastic on the grill! Just don’t forget to boil and finish the marinade in a pot before serving it over the grilled thighs.
Serve alongside white rice with fresh cilantro and sliced jalapeño, and you’ll have a crowd-pleasing summer dinner ready in under an hour. Cheers!
