Recipe by Manda
This is one of my personal favorites. It could easily be a one-dish meal, but I usually like to serve it with buttered noodles or rice pilaf. Healthy, easy, and sooo flavorful. I usually alter the veggies depending on what I have on hand...sweet potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, celery...be adventurous!!!! Had to post this one for my fellow garlic-lovers!!

This is a fantastic one-dish meal! I substituted yellow squash for the zucchini (our preference). And to make it even easier, I added the oil and spices together in a small jar, shook till combined, then drizzled over the chicken and veggies. For those who like less garlic, you could use garlic powder instead of the fresh garlic or just a few cloves. BUT, if you love garlic flavor, go with the recipe and use that whole head of garlic. It is great!! Thanks Manda, from one garlic lover to another!! This one is officially one of my regular's now!
