Lemonade Chicken

It doesn't take a seasoned cook to turn out this scrumptious entree. Served with your favorite salad, it makes a wonderful summer supper. Try it with limeade or orange juice in place of lemonade. My family raves about every refreshing version.

    I made a paste of all the ingredients except the lemonade, and rubbed them all over the back & legs of a whole chicken. Then I placed it breast side down in a crockpot & poured the lemonade around it. Took about 5 hours on low and it was *fabulous.*I poured all the juices from the crockpot into a glass container & tucked it into the fridge. The next day, I separated off the fat from the top and used the juices (plus some water) in my rice cooker with basmati rice.I chunked the remaining cooked chicken, sautéed some onion, bell pepper & canned pineapple chunks and mixed it all together. Garnished with maraschino cherry halves, it was a perfect 2nd meal!

    I made this last summer and it was SO delicious! Never had a more flavorful, refreshing meal! Is good also with limeade and a little cilantro instead of mint.

    I don't grill either, but I do everything on my George Foreman.  I will try it that way and get back to you.
