SERVES: 6

1/2 cup tequila

1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice

2 tablespoons olive oil, plus 1 teaspoon for brushing if needed

1 tablespoon salt-free Caribbean Citrus seasoning

1 tablespoon honey

1 teaspoon fresh lime zest

1 pound chicken legs

In a large bowl, combine the tequila, lime juice, olive oil, Carib­bean Citrus seasoning, honey, and lime zest and mix well. Add the chicken legs, cover, and place in the refrigerator to marinate for four to five hours or overnight. Preheat an outdoor grill with the rack set about 6 inches from the heat source. Set the heat to medium-high. Coat the grill rack with cooking spray. (Or prepare an oven broiler with the rack set 6 inches from the heat source. Cover a broiler tray with aluminum foil and coat the foil with cooking spray.)

Add the chicken legs and grill or broil for 25 to 30 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through to an internal temperature of 180 degrees. If the chicken appears dry as it cooks, brush each leg with a little olive oil. Source: You Won’t Believe It’s Salt-Free! by Robyn Webb, image by Renee Comet Photography.
