Lemonade Chicken

It doesn't take a seasoned cook to turn out this scrumptious entree. Served with your favorite salad, it makes a wonderful summer supper. Try it with limeade or orange juice in place of lemonade. My family raves about every refreshing version.

SERVINGS: 6

CATEGORY: Main Dish

METHOD: Grill (gas or charcoal)

TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Grill: 20 min.

Ingredients:
1 can (12 ounces) frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon minced fresh mint or 1/4 teaspoon dried mint
4 pounds bone-in chicken breast halves (8 ounces each)
