Chick-fil-A Lemonade is the secret ingredient in this delicious bread

“This is a great recipe when you have a lot of people over, and you need something impressive but don’t have a ton of time to prepare it,” says Brandi Milloy, TV host and food reporter of POPSUGAR Food’s Eat the Trend, who also makes regular appearances on the Today Show sharing her favorite recipes. “It’s like sunshine on a plate.”

Milloy’s Lemony Tear & Share Bread is similar to other monkey breads, but she simplifies the recipe using premade refrigerated biscuit dough and her secret ingredient – Chick-fil-A Lemonade -- which anyone can buy by the gallon.

“Chick-fil-A uses Sunkist® lemons, and they squeeze the juice fresh every day, adding just water and sugar,” says Milloy.

Milloy serves this bread for breakfast or for dessert in the spring or summer.
