Mexican B*****d Chicken courtesy of @Dig_us

This recipe has been given to my by one of my lovely followers on twitter, @Dig_us  Sounds fab and I hope I do it justice!   So here goes!

Just Add Chicken
Ingredients (Serves 4)
4 chicken breasts - free range folks!
Tequila
Red and Green chilli's to taste, chopped
Cream - I used 3 tbs Greek yoghurt instead, cream doesn't like me!
Spring onion, sliced
Red and Green peppers chopped

Chicken Marinating



Method
Throw on the chillis and pour enough tequila to cover the chicken.  Put in fridge for at least 12 hours to marinate.





Take the chicken out of the fridge 30 minutes before cooking
Turn on oven to 180
Drain off marinade and reserve for use later
Seal the chicken all over in a pan and put in the oven for 30 minutes, or until cooked

After 20 mins or so gently fry the spring onions and peppers until soft.   Then take off heat

Combined and ready to serve

Delicious :)
Put the marinade in another pan to reduce.  When reduced enough put the onions and peppers mixture in with it, add the cream and heat through.  Do not boil.



Pour over chicken and serve :)  Serving suggestion was with minted potatoes and green beans, but as I'd forgotten that bit I served with a potatoes and sweetcorn (sorry)!

Absolutely delicious and perfect spice for us, will definitely be doing this again, if the Tequila survives!

Thank you Kris!
