- 2 pounds chicken, cut into bite size pieces
- 1 cup lemonade
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tbsp lime juice
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 bay leaf
- Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add chicken to skillet and saute the chicken until the chicken turns white on all sides, but is not completely cooked. If you completely cook the chicken before adding the remaining ingredients, your chicken will dry out and be tough.

Serve with your favorite tortillas, rice, lettuce, sour cream, salsa, tomatoes, guacamole, or cheese.
