This tequila and lime marinade was something I found made by Sweet Baby Ray’s.

I  will show you how to grill great chicken drumsticks but keep in mined this recipe is enough for an entire chicken sectioned up into pieces. You could also use, just chicken breasts or just legs or heck any combination of chicken that you want (or even turkey for that matter).

And don’t panic… It’s super easy.

(For 3 people)

6 Chicken Legs (thawed)
1/2 Bottle Tequila Lime Marinade & Sauce (Sweet Baby Ray’s) linky*

    1. Rinse chicken pieces and place in gallon sized Ziploc freezer bag.tequilagrilled_chicken02
    2. Pour marinade over chicken.tequilagrilled_chicken03
    3. Seal bag and refrigerate for 1-2 hours (i don’t like to go longer than that as the lime can be overpowering)
    4. Oil grill with non stick spray then preheat to 450 F.
    5. Remove chicken from bag and place on grill over indirect heat.


      Place on grill “nice” side up

    6. Pour extra marinade over your drumsticks then discard bag and make sure to wash your hands. (you don’t want to take any chances with raw chicken)

    7. Grill directly on grate (indirect heat) for approx 35 -45 minutes turning at least once. Make sure to test chicken with meat thermometer. Internal temp should be at least 165F.
