Ingredients

  • 3-4 pounds whole chicken
  • 2 teaspoons seasoning blend (see notes)

  • 1 lime
  • ½ cup tequila
  • ½ cup chicken broth (optional)

Instructions

  • Rub seasoning blend all over chicken

  • Squeeze the juice from one lime all over chicken and then carefully pour in tequila and let simmer for 3-4 minutes

  • Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 until chicken reaches 165 degrees

Notes

Note on seasoning: I used Penzey's Mural of Flavor seasoning but you can use any favorite chicken seasoning blend from your grocery store. Montreal Chicken is always a good choice, too.
