This is a hidden treasure on 'Zaar! Hidden in foil with a yummy sauce and colorful veggies! I made two small changes--I used fresh carrots and pre-cooked them to avoid the crunch--I also doubled the garlic just because I could. This was excellent baked in my oven and I'm looking forward to grilling it outside in warmer weather. I served brown rice and peas for a very pretty and healthy plate of food.

Wonderful, easy dish. I actually made the sauce for each breasts because we love sauces. I think next time I will add water chesnuts & some broccoli for even more flavor & texture. A real keeper!
