Lemonade Chicken

Lemonade Chicken

"'I don't know where this recipe originally came from, but my mother used to prepare it for our family when I was little, and now I love to make it,' says Jenny Cook from Eau Claire, Wisconsin. A sweet and tangy sauce nicely coats chicken that's ready to serve in just a few hours."
