Margarita Chicken


1/2 cup nonalcoholic Margarita mix
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 clove garlic, crushed
3 pounds cut-up broiler-fryer chicken
1 teaspoon coarse salt


Mix Margarita mix, lime juice and garlic in resealable heavy-duty plastic food-storage bag. Add chicken; seal bag and turn to coat with marinade. Refrigerate, turning bag occasionally, at least 1 hour but no longer than 24 hours. Remove chicken from marinade. Heat coals or gas grill. Place chicken, skin sides up, on grill. Sprinkle with ½ teaspoon of salt. Cover and grill 5 to 6 inches from medium heat 15 minutes; turn chicken. Sprinkle with remaining ½ teaspoon salt. Cover and grill 20 to 40 minutes longer, turning occasionally, until juice of chicken is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut.


6 servings.
