Tequila Lime Chicken | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


Who doesn’t love TEQUILA?!! Lisa introduced me to this Weight Watchers recipe a couple of years back and I’ve been hooked ever since. It has a little more prep than I like, but the results are totally worth it. It’s great on the grill or in the oven and delicious with Spanish rice or a salad. Enjoy!

p.s. To turn the heat down, just remove the seeds from the jalapeno before blending. Seed=HEAT!
