I didn't have high expectations going into this recipe as per the other reviews but to my suprise this was actually pretty good. Perhaps the fact that when you take the chicken out of the pan it doesn't look extremely appealing to the eye was what turned others off? Whatever the case.. I think I will make this again b/c it's quick and very easy and pretty tasty. I won't change the amount of the ingredients because the extra makes for a good sauce for dipping. The only thing I may try different next time is to brown the chicken a little before putting in the margarita mix into the skillet to make it more brown and to make it look nicer.
I made some changes to this recipe based on some things other reviewers suggested. I also cut the margarita mix down to 2 cups. I still thought the sauce was a little too sweet. I think next time I may use 1 cup margarita mix and 1 cup chicken broth. I browned my chicken in a little olive oil before adding the sauce mix so it would have some color. Finally once the chicken was cooked I removed it from the pan and boiled the sauce down. I will probably make this again. My husband really liked it.
I prepared this recipe with only 2 cups of the margarita mix. I also dredged the chicken breasts in flour (with some Mrs. Dash added) before browning them in 1 tablespoon olive oil. I removed the chicken from the pan while mixing the sauce brought the sauce to a boil then added the chicken breasts back to the pan. The flour from the dredging helped to slightly thicken the sauce. I served the sauce in custard cups on the side for dipping. It was much sweeter than I expected it to be. The husband LOVED it!
This recipe was great and everyone LOVED it!!! The one thing I would change would be the amount of margarita cocktail needed to make this... You really don't need all that much. When I prepared it I marinated the chicken in the mixture and pan seared it with a bit of Mrs. Dash...
I was a little unsure of this dish but it came out really tasty! I followed suggestions from other reviewers and browned the chicken first and used less mix than required. I added a little cornstarch at the end to thicken the sauce. I'll definitely be making this again!
I was very excited to try this recipe. I took other poster's suggestions and used just 2 cups margarita coctail and added about 1/4 cup tequila. I dredged the chicken in flour and grilled it in olive oil on a grill pan while bringing the sauce to a boil then added the chicken to the sauce. It came out pretty good. I made it for company which all complimented it. Still I had hoped it would be a little better than it was. I will try it again after modifying a bit more.
The sauce turned out really soupy in part to the fact that I didn't add any alcohol and have a "proper" margarita mix to add. Next time I will take antoher reviewer's advice and add some cornstarch. Overall this dish is delicious. The lime taste is very worth it.
