This is a wonderful one-dish meal that presents itself beautifully. It is fairly simple, and guaranteed to knock the socks off of the garlic-lovers in your crowd!!! I have also substituted various other veggies for the carrots (such as brussels sprouts, broccoli, or zucchini) and I get rave reviews every time!! My fave is the brussels sprouts, I know I'm weird!! Well, either way, this dish is simple enough to serve as a weeknight family meal, yet elegant enough to serve to guests. I just love it!!! I usually serve this with steamed rice and a fresh green salad. YUMMY!!!!

My whole family went wild over this easy yet elegant dish. I followed the recipe to a "T", except I did not peel my potatoes as they were red skinned and we like the skin. I sliced them very thin to ensure they would cook. The only problem I had was that the baby carrots were still a little crunchy, even after all of that cook time and being tightly covered. Don’t get me wrong...they were so garlicky and delicious, we ate them all up, but I think next time I will either slice up regular carrots very thin or just leave them out completely and cook seperately. Or maybe try another veggie...I love brussel sprouts, too! Thanks for sharing this recipe...I am always looking for another way to cook plain old chicken that will please the whole family and this one sure did! Another PLUS...a whole meal all in one dish...YAY!!!!!

This made an awesome dinner for us. I followed your recipe exactly and it turned out perfect. That garlic flavor--Wowie!! Intense and delicious. I used potatoes and carrots but will try fresh brussel sprouts next time because I love them too. A beautiful and very easy dish. Thanks Manda, we loved it.
