This recipe is a sort-of knock off of Applebee's tequila lime chicken (now known as "fiesta lime chicken," or some BS because apparently people weren't ordering it because of the tequila part [which was what drew me to the dish in the first place] . . . what is the matter with people?) and sort of random yet totally delicious.
I marinated two chicken breasts in two shots of tequila, with approximately 1/4 cup of cilantro, for about 4 hours. In the mean time, I combined 1/4 cup of light ranch dressing with 3/4 cup of salsa.
I grilled the chicken breasts so they were browned on both sides, then placed them in a baking dish, topped them with the salsa mixture and some grated monterey jack cheese, and baked them at 325 for about 20 minutes.
I served the chicken breasts over some Uncle Ben's "taco rice" and topped them with jalapenos. They, seriously, tasted awesome. Had I put the chicken breasts over tortilla strips, as they do at Applebee's, I'm almost certain I would have preferred my version. As it was I thought my version was fantastic, and had FAR less calories than the Applebee's original (thereby placing it firmly within the weekday diet)!

These are freakin' gross. Seriously. Just about the ugliest shoes I've ever seen. Next to Crocs. And Uggs. Really, it's a three-way tie on that one.
