WHAT YOU NEED:
1 whole chicken, cut up
1/2 cup of good tequila, love me some tequila
1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
2 limes, juiced
2 oranges, juiced
2 lemons, juiced
1/2 cup pineapple juice
2 jalapenos, diced
4 cloves of Garlic, chopped
1 bunch cilantro, chopped
1 T cumin
1 t chili powder
1 t paprika
S&P
Cayenne Pepper to taste (Optional)
WHAT TO DO:
Grab your chicken, rinse and pat it dry.  Toss the cleaned chicken into a large plastic ziploc bag.
Grab a big bowl and pour the tequila, olive oil, juices, jalapeno, cilantro, spices and S&P.  Mix well.
Pour your marinade over the chicken in the bag.  I also throw my squeezed limes, oranges and lemons, in with the chicken.
Place in the fridge and let marinate for at least 1 hour, but I let it go overnight.
Heat your grill up good and high.  Spray with cooking spray to keep chicken from sticking.
Grill chicken until cooked through and juices run clear and the internal temperature hits 170.  Takes a good 15-20 minutes or so for the big breasts and thighs.  Less time for the wings and legs.
