1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
Salt to taste
1/4 cup tequila
3 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 lb uncooked chicken breast tenders (not breaded; about 8 tenders)

Drizzle and Garnish:

2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

In large bowl, mix all chicken ingredients except chicken tenders. Add chicken; toss gently to mix. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate 1 to 2 hours to marinate.
