Foodie Friday: Fiesta Chicken and Rice

Grilling season has begun! Woohoo! I have been taking full advantage of the warm, sunny days and grilling up a storm. We had this yumminess the other night for our supper. It was deliciousness on a plate.

-4 chicken breasts
-4 T olive oil
-4 oz rum or tequila
-2 T lime juice
-2 T chili powder
-1 T garlic powder
-1/2 t salt
-1 T cumin
- 4 c cooked rice
-1 tomato chopped
-1 t lime juice
-2 T chopped cilantro

1. Mix marinade ingredients. (I first mixed everything except the oil, then I slowly whisked the oil in.) Pour marinade over chicken and allow to marinade for about an hour.
2. Grill chicken over medium heat until it reaches 160 degrees.
3. Mix rice with the remaining ingredients.
4. Cut chicken into strips and serve over a bed of rice.
