Lemon-Lime Chicken

I've served this main dish numerous times for dinner guests and have received many compliments. In fact, every time I make it for my husband, he'll comment, "This is the best chicken I've ever had."

    I loved this!I have even started throwing everything in crockpot on LOW for 6-8 hrs. (High may scorch sugar)I cut chicken into strips, "stew" in slow cooker, separate from liquid when done, shred with fork... And serve over a bed of yellow rice.Rice and chicken would probably also make for a wonderful tortilla filling!

    Very tasty, and my extremely picky six year old even loved it.
