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.

Freezer Instructions:

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.
