Jose Cuervo Margarita Cajun Chicken Recipe

I had a full 100 Calorie Jose Cuervo Margarita bottle staring me in the face while I was cleaning the kitchen yesterday, so I reached out to my Tweeps to ask if anyone had a Margarita Chicken recipe to share. Since not one person replied with a yummy recipe, I decided to take a walk on the wild side and come up with one all on my own.

Naturally some of you are asking yourselves why the heck I wanted to cook with margarita mix rather than pour myself a drink, but I had a large glass of summery sangria in hand {trust me, cleaning is much more fun when you're sipping on a cocktail!} and my stomach was rumbling, so it was the only logical thing to do :)

Jose Cuervo Margarita Cajun Chicken

1.5 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast
1 cup Jose Cuervo 100 Calorie Margarita
2 limes
1 lemon
1 tablespoon chicken bouillon seasoning
1 tablespoon garlic pepper seasoning
Cajun seasoning, to taste


1. Wash and slice chicken breasts to your liking.
2. Pour 1 cup Jose Cuervo Margarita into a bowl.
3. Hand squeeze and add the juice from two limes and one lemon into the bowl.
4. Whisk in the chicken bouillon and garlic pepper seasoning. Mix well.
5. Transfer chicken to a shallow dish and pour 3/4 of the Margarita mix over it.
6. Reserve 1/4 of Margarita mix for later use.
7. Let chicken marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes.
8. Place chicken in frying pan and cook over medium heat until no longer pink.
9. Add reserved Margarita mix.
10. Lower heat, sprinkle chicken with Cajun seasoning to taste.
11. Allow the chicken to simmer until Margarita mix is gone.

YUM-O!!! It's a perfect summery chicken recipe - let me know if you give it a try.


  1. This looks like it would be delicious on nachos or on a gosh darn quesadilla! (That is a Napolean Dynamite reference if you did not catch that...)
    Making up your own recipes is the best type of recipe to have! I've concocted some sort of white wine chicken recipe one time while drinking it at the same time. I don't remember it but it was delicious.

  2. That sounds delicious! We have a half opened bottle of blackberry liquor of some sort that I have to try and polish off somehow before we move, preferably by cooking it :) It's like a Chopped challenge!

  3. Oh my god that looks DELICIOUS! Seriously, my mouth is watering at that chicken (which probably isn't good at 1:30 in the morning :)

  4. Yummy! I am definitely going to give this a try sometime!

  5. Stopped by from FTLOB and now my mouth is watering. I can't cook worth a damn so would you be so kind as to mail me some of yours? Thank you in advance. Oh, and LOVE your wedding color palette. Am following to see how it all turns out. Weddings are always so exciting!

  6. Yum!!!! I just posted a Skinny Girl Margarita recipe yday on my blog & I must make this with it next time :-)

  7. That sounds delicious! I'm anxiously awaiting a peak at the engagement photos!!!!
