need help decarbing a chicken dish please

I saw this delicious looking recipe by Sandra Lee on Semi-Homemade. I would love to make it but don't know what to use for lemonade concentrate. Do you think I could use TrueLemon and a sugar sub? Anyone have any thoughts on how to start this?

Provence Style Chicken Breast Fillets Recipe courtesy Sandra Lee

Show: Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee

4 boneless skinless chicken breast fillets
3 tablespoons light olive oil
2 tablespoons lemonade concentrate
1 tablespoon Champagne vinegar
2 tablespoons herbs de Provence
1 tablespoon citrus herb seasoning

INDOOR: Prepare chicken as directed. Preheat broiler. Place chicken breast fillets on foil lined baking sheet or broiler pan. Broil 6 to 8 inches from heat source for 2 to 4 minutes per side. Do not over cook.
Rinse and pat dry breast fillets. Pound to 1/2-inch thick; set aside.

In a small bowl mix together remaining ingredients. Pour marinade mixture into large zip-top bag and add chicken. Squeeze out air and place in refrigerator 1 to 2 hours.

Set up grill for direct grilling over medium heat. Oil grate when ready to start cooking. Remove chicken from refrigerator and let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Place chicken on hot oiled grill and cook 2 to 3 minutes per side or until done.

Well...I'll take a stab.

The lemonade concentrate would provide a really intense lemon flavor while providing the stickiness from the sugar in the lemonade. I would think that using any low calore/low carb lemonade type drink mix, sweetened with your choice of artificial sweetener would work just fine. You could also just make your own LC lemonade with reconsituted lemon juice and splenda.

The recipe doesn't seem to need a whole lot of it and if you're just marinating in it, I don't imagine that you'd actually be consuming a major quantity even if you did use the regular concentrate.

When life happens, sometimes you NEED 'Plan C'...

What about some lemon extract added to a little lemon juice and splenda or sweetzfree. The extract would bump up the lemon flavor in the lemon juice.

Lemon oil

You could use Boyajian lemon oil. Just 1/4 t would give intense lemon flavor. But it's not sweet, so you would have to add sweetener too.
