“A sweet and sour chicken recipe that has the surprising ingredient of frozen lemonade concentrate. The sauce simmers in the crockpot and becomes mellow and delicious - not too lemony, just right!”

Directions

  1. Rinse pieces of chicken in water, then roll damp chicken into seasoned flour. Brown in fat in a heavy skillet. Remove chicken and place in crockpot. Combine lemonade concentrate, brown sugar, ketchup and vinegar; mix well. Pour lemonade mixture over chicken. Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours or LOW for 6 to 8 hours. Remove chicken from crockpot and cover to keep hot. Transfer liquid to saucepan over medium-low heat. Skim fat; add optional vegetables, combine cornstarch and cold water and add slowly to liquid, while stirring. The sauce will be thickened after it reaches a full rolling boil, when thickened, serve the chicken along with hot cooked rice. The vegetables will still be crisp-tender.
  2. It tastes a bit like sweet and sour chicken - always a hit with my 5 children - we double the recipe since we're a two chicken family now.
