    Simple, refreshing summer entree.

    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.
