Ready In:




  • In a bowl, mix the lemonade concentrate, garlic and ginger. Add the chicken and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours.
  • Preheat the gas grill, setting the burners to high. Oil the grate.
  • Remove the chicken from the marinade. Set the marinade aside. Grill the chicken until no longer pink inside, about 6 minutes per side.
  • In a saucepan over high heat, bring the marinade and broth to a boil. Boil for 3 to 4 minutes. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  • To serve, slice the chicken breasts on the diagonal. Drizzle with the sauce and garnish with fresh mint, if desired.

  1. I put all the ingredients together to marinate the chicken. The next time I will use only 1/3 lemonade concentrate because it was a little strong. Definately a keeper for being speedy and tasty.
  2. A little too sweet for me, but otherwise the flavor was good and chicken was juicy.
  3. This was great. I loved it. I cooked my sauce a little longer and it made a great glaze. I served it with grilled asparagus.
  4. This was great!! I ended up marinating this a couple of hours longer because we had unexpected company, and was relieved that the citrus didn't 'cook' the chicken. This had a nice lemony flavor and the garlic and ginger were very nice in the sauce. Thanks Redsie for a simple and delicious dinner.
