Margarita Chicken

1/2 cup margarita mix

3 tablespoons lime juice

1 clove garlic - crushed

3 pounds cut-up broiler-flyer chicken

1 teaspoon coarse salt

Mix margarita mix, lime juice and garlic in resealable heavy-duty plastic food-storage bag.

Add chicken; seal bag and turn to coat with marinade. Refrigerate, turning bag occasionally, at least 1 hour but no longer than 24 hours. Remove chicken from marinade; reserve marinade.

Heat coals or gas grill. Place chicken, skin sides up, on grill.

Brush with marinade; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. Cover and grill 5 to 6 inches from medium heat 15 minutes; turn chicken. Brush with remaining marinade; sprinkle with remaining 1/2 tea-spoon salt.

Cover and grill 20 to 40 minutes longer, turning occasionally, until juice of chicken is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut.

6 servings.
