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?

3 tablespoons light olive oil
2 tablespoons lemonade concentrate

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.

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.

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.

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.
