This Lemonade Chicken recipe makes a very tart flavored chicken. I was actually a bit surprised with the taste. The Rice and Green Beans was a great addition. The Lemonade concentrate almost caramelized the chicken, if I was to change anything next time would be to cook it a bit less.
You can spray with pam to help keep the chicken from sticking to the crock.
Place Chicken at Bottom of the crock.
In a bowl mix all other ingredients except rice and then pour over chicken.
Do not cook rice in crock..wait till it’s nearly done and cook on your stove top or rice cooker.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.
Add Salt and Pepper when serving to help garnish.
I did not thaw the lemonade for this recipe.
Place chicken and all other ingredients except the rice right into the freezer ziploc gallon bag and mushed it around a bit, knowing I’ll have to mix it a bit better when I thaw it due to the lemonade.
I then laid it down on the counter, pushed out as much air as possible and laid it flat in my freezer.
Follow directions above once your ziploc bag is thawed.
Hi I'm Sarah, I live in very rural Kansas with my 3 children. We also have 3 hens, Betty Lou, Dinozzo, Jenny Jewel. Our fun involves gardening, living in an iconic area of the country where corn fields,small towns, tractors, farmers and hard work are still very important and occasionally when we need some adventure we drive on over the border to Missouri where the real shopping stores are...aka Target. I grew up in Utah so I enjoy commemorating with Heidi over everything Rocky Mountains.
