    You can cook this any way you'd like, so I'm just posting the marinade, which I recommend leaving chicken in for at least 8 hours.

    Marinade for Tequila-Lime Chicken (easily enough for 2 lbs, likely 4):
    1/2 cup gold Tequila
    1/2 cup lime juice (many recipes double this, but I've found it WAY too much)
    1/2 cup orange juice
    1 Tbsp chili powder
    1 minced jalapeƱo pepper
    ~4-6 smashed then minced cloves garlic
    2 tsp salt
    1 tsp black pepper

    Mix everything together, then place chicken in the marinade and refrigerate. I do 2 lbs at a time and put them in two bags with 1 lb each.

    Based on the above, if you assume that you consume 50% of the marinade, then 1 lbs will be 530 calories, 6 gm fat, 7 gm carbs, 105 gm protein.
