Lime Chicken Tequila Tailgate

I fixed this on Friday before all of the Buffett festivities began. Everyone said they enjoyed it. Definitely a worthy dish to try for your next tailgating event. I got all of my tailgating recipes from the Food Network's Guy Fieri. He has some great recipes and tips.

2 ounces olive oil
1 cup julienned red onion
1 tablespoon minced jalapeno
1/2 cup roasted and julienned red bell pepper
1 roasted chicken, boned, skin discarded and shredded
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves, plus more for garnish
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan, plus more for garnish
5 ounces mozzarella, grated
4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
3 ounces tequila or white wine or chicken broth
1/4 cup diced Roma tomatoes, for garnish
4 sourdough rolls, warmed

Layer 2 (15-inch) sheets of heavy aluminum foil together and fold 1/4-inch of the edges together to create 1 sheet. Repeat with another 2 pieces of foil, to create 2 double foiled sheets. Bend the edges of 1 of the sheets up 2 inches, to help keep the liquid in the foil.

On a double sheet of foil, layer (in this order), the oil, onions, jalapeno, red bell peppers, chicken, salt and pepper, garlic, cilantro, cheeses, lemon juice and tequila.

Put the second, double layered foil sheet on top of layered ingredients. Fold both double layered sheets of foil together in 1/4-inch folds, 4 times. When all the sides are folded together, make sure that the pouch is not leaking. Refrigerate until ready to cook.

To cook preheat the oven or grill to 250 degrees F. Remove the foil pouch from the refrigerator and put on the grill, being careful not to snag the foil pouch and tear it open. Grill for 10 minutes, then flip and cook for another 10 minutes.

Remove the pouch from the grill and slice the bag open. Garnish with the tomatoes, cilantro, and Parmesan and serve on warmed rolls.
