Sorry, but I did not like this recipe. I was very interested in the use of lemonade, but it provided a taste that was, to me, odd. This dish ended up tasting somewhat like a lemon/orange type of oriental chicken dish...too sweet!

Found this recipe to be toooooo...sweet for our taste. I was amazedhow simple it was to prepare...and when the crazy hour before dinner arrived...I was relaxing..gotta love that! in fact if it wasn't for this recipe I wouldn't have pulled my CrockPot out of storage! I will be looking for many more CrockPot suppers!

Well I just loved this dish. The chicken was infused with a terrific lemon flavour and it could not have been easier to make. The guest I served it to ate the chicken and used up the sauce over their rice. I think this is a great dish. Thanks for posting it Tish.
