Margarita Chicken Salad

Here is another favorite chicken salad of ours! I found it a few years ago in a magazine and its become quite popular in our house! It is very refreshing and tasty! I generally always have the ingredients on hand!

Margarita Chicken Salad
1 lb chicken
margarita mix(without alcohol)
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp lime zest
1/2 cup mayo(or miracle whip)
juice of 1 lime
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

Place chicken, margarita mix(enough to cover chicken), lime zest, and cumin in container or zip top bag. Seal and let marinate for at least 4 hours. Grill chicken. Discard marinade. Chop or shred chicken. Mix with juice, mayo, and pepper. Serve on rolls.

**sorry no picture...we actually haven't had this all summer, but I think it needs to make an appearance very soon!
