Garlic Carrots

While the chops bake, Chris speeds nicely seasoned Garlic Carrots to her skillet. She uses bite-sized carrots that don't need to be cut or peeled and keeps a jar of prepared minced garlic on hand to save on prep and cleanup time.

    These are delicious!!! Mine needed significantly longer to cook to be tender, which is not a bad thing, just taste them as you go along.~ Theresa

    The carrots were still a bit too crunchy after following these directions. Next time i would cook them a bit longer, however, the flavor was great.
