Got some great recipe ideas in yesterday's thread. Unfortunately I was missing several key ingredients so I decided to save them for another day and instead went with tequila lime chicken with grilled hearts of romaine and mexican corn.

Making the glaze. Came out fantastic. Gooey, sweet, and spicy.

All the ingredients at the grill ready to go.

Final result. Wifey loved it but we both agreed that the grilled romaine was nothing special. Unless of course I did it wrong. :whistle:

    I had forgotten where I got the recipe (I have a large binder of printed out Eggfest/Eggheadforum/Other site recipes) until I searched the Cookbook here on the forum. It's keefus's recipe:

    Some things I did different:

    -Used chicken quarters instead of whole chicken. Really, just use whatever cut you want and cook it to temp.

    -Didn't have time to let the chicken sit overnight with the coriander/salt/pepper so I just lifted up the skin, put the mixture underneath, then wrapped the skin back over it. This actually turned out quite nicely - as I bit into the chicken, I got a mouthful of glaze before going through the skin and getting the coriander taste.

    -Didn't spray oil on the grill.

    -Grilled around 400 degrees to internal temperature.

    -Raised spider with drip pan, chicken on highest level of adjustable rig, corn on raised grid.

    I would definitely bump up the quantities for the glaze. It reduces considerably and after you taste it you're left wishing you made more. :P
