  • 3/4 cup thawed lemonade concentrate
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 broiler/fryer chickens (3 to 3-1/2 pounds each), cut up


  1. In a bowl, whisk the first 6 ingredients until combined. Pour half into a shallow glass dish. Cover and refrigerate remaining lemonade mixture.
  2. Dip chicken into lemonade mixture, turning to coat; discard lemonade mixture. Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat for 30 minutes, turning occasionally. Brush with reserved lemonade mixture. Grill 10-20 minutes longer, brushing frequently, until a thermometer reads 165°.
