Chicken under a brick was born in Italy, but the Mexican version, pollo a la piedra (chicken under a stone), was my inspiration for a Tex-Mex rendition flavored with cilantro, chiles, lime, and tequila. I use some of the ingredients as a marinade and some for a quick salsa to serve with the chicken. Serve with tortillas for wrapping.

Pretty good. I might have liked it better if I had cooked it on the grill, but since the temp. was like 15 degrees I made it stove top and finished it in the oven. My husband really liked it a lot.
