Yep. This is the best name I could think up for this recipe. Spicy Tequila Skillet Chicken Tenders. I mean yeah its spicy. I threw tequila in it, cooked it in a skillet, and TECHNICALLY they’re chicken tenders? So yeah. Nailed it!
The other night I had a craving for some easy to make chicken that had a little spice to it and something extra to it. Not extra like how the kids are saying it. Extra like.. you know. How a dad would say it!
These skillet chicken fingers are seasoned with a little cumin, chili powder, and paprika. cooked in a skillet, then I flambeed, it (for science) with some tequila. Topped it off with some cheese, scallions and fresh cut fresno and serrano peppers, and I’ve got an easy meal that hits the spot!.
When picking your cheese for this, make good choices and grab tilamook. Love how well their cheese melts. But I’m open to other cheese so if you think there’s a better cheese brand out there drop me a line!
I’ve started up my diet again, to cut some weight quickly before we start heading out to the beach this summer. This recipe is a good way for me to supplement it. I’d imagine if you were strictly doing Keto or some Paleo type recipe, this would be right up your alley as well!
As for me, this is just a tasty, cheesy, delicious snack that tingles the lips and is quick to make!
