This comes together very quickly and smelled and tasted wonderful! I made two changes - one, chick thighs instead of breasts - worked well. The other, putting the carrots through the food processor, didn't - juilennied would have been a better bet though as it dish lacked texture. I will make this again with the carrots cut differently - it was very good.
