I love this simple chicken dish. The frozen lemonade gives it just the right amount of tang. I know it may sound a little weird, but please give it a try and see if you don’t love the simple sweet and sour flavor. It’s served over rice and has some veggies in it. Just add a little fruit salad for dessert and dinner is ready.
