Perfect for those New Year's resolutions, this Tequila Lime Chicken Quinoa Bowl is healthy, nutritious, satisfying and tasty! Made with simple and natural ingredients this recipe is great for lunch or dinner.

When you are trying to eat healthy it can be difficult to find recipes that are also easy and flavorful. No one should have to live on bland food and salads! This Tequila Lime Chicken Quinoa Bowl is packed with nutritious ingredients but is definitely not lacking in flavor. Lean chicken breast is cooked with a tequila, lime and honey glaze. The glaze is made with just three ingredients and takes this meal to a whole new level!

Altos Tequila Plata is the shining star of this dish. It is made from 100% agave grown in the Los Altos highlands of Mexico. The creators, Henry Besant and Dre Masso noticed a gap in the tequila market so they partnered with Maestro Tequilero Jesus Hernandez to create high quality tequila that is accessible to all types of fans. 

Not only is this Tequila Lime Chicken Quinoa Bowl great for keeping to a healthy eating plan. It also has the flavors of a vacation! You will be transported to a Mexican vacation, margarita in hand.

Altos Tequila Plata is slightly citric and sweet. Mixed with lime juice and honey it makes the perfect glaze.
