“I love using the other worcestershire by lea & perrins. What was originally their white wine worcestershire but is now called chicken marinade and found with the other marinades in the grocery store. Although i found this on the internet there just aren't enough recipes on here using the great white worcestershire. so I wanted to share my find. It is a little involved and the longer the chicken marinates the better. But you are sure to impress with this dish at your next cookout! Just don't weat your kiss the cook apron unless you mean it!! You can use beer instead of the tequilla- but this is a southwestern dish! Or if you are afraid the alcohol content wont cook out and you are serving to children etc you can leave it out alltogether”
