Margarita Grilled Chicken

When I made the guacamole a few weeks ago I asked Richard if he could run to the store and pick me up a lime; he came home with 12 limes. When I asked him why did he buy so many he replied that they were on sale 12 for a dollar, now what am I going to do with all these limes. So when I was a Costco the other day I saw the Margarita mix and I remember that I still had some at home and Richard did take chicken out for dinner and I still had all those limes, so my brain went into recipe mode and I came up with this marinade. The chicken turned out so tender and tasted just like a margarita. I served it with Spanish rice, beans and tortillas.
