Pomelo tequila chicken

I really like pomeloes, but finding a “good” one  can be difficult. They smell good, look good, however after slicing into them the pulp just is not quite right. And yes, this happened the other day. I hate to waste food. Having planned something chicken for dinner I decided to use the pulp for a marinade. It turned out pretty darn good. Of course some additives helped improve the flavor too. 

  • Chicken boobs ( I used two halves) boneless, skinless
  • 1 pomelo pulp removed and squished for some juice ( you can use a bowl and the back of a spoon) 
  • 2 ounces of tequila 
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 15 peppercorns whole
  • 2 serranos, slice big with seeds 
  • A pinch of pink  salt 
  • 1 plastic bag or marinating dish

Remove pulp from pomelo, I cut chunks out placing them in a bowl and pressed down with a spoon to create some juice. After doing that add all the other ingrediants except chicken and stir. Put chicken in bag or bowl, pour everything on the chicken and massage a bit. Cover tightly or squish out the air, refrigerate over night or the day. Grill until done. I cooked the serranos on the grill as well. 

Very simple having a great flavor. I served it with roasted cauliflower. 

As always we hope you enjoy.
