Kiy Note: (7/5/2008) Another so-so dish. It cooked up nice, but just didn't seem to have any flavor (to us). Not sure what else it needed. I am bummed as it was super easy and was hoping this would be a keeper (I did add about a tablespoon of lemon juice towards the end, but it didn't really help all that much).

Chinese Lemon Chicken

The Ingredients:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast pieces or equivalent
½ cup flour (or Pamela's)
1 T kosher salt
6 oz (½ can) frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
3 T brown sugar
1 t balsamic vinegar
3 T ketchup
olive oil for browning chicken

The Directions:

  1. Cut chicken into strips or largish chunks
  2. Dredge in flour and salt, shake off excess
  3. Brown chicken in a skillet with a bit of olive oil (you are not trying to cook the chicken--just give it some color and get the flour mixture to stick a bit)
  4. Place into crockpot
  5. mix the rest of the ingredients in a separate bowl and pour over the top of chicken pieces
  6. cover and cook on high for 4 hours, low for 6-8

Serve over rice, drizzle with remaining sauce.

This tastes amazing all on it's own, but next time I might add a bit of red pepper flakes to the grown-up portions for a bit of a kick.
