Used 1/2 the butter. Made french fries and pickle beets too to satisfy the hungry teens otherwise it wouldn't have been enough food for everyone.0 Helpful
You guys, I love the carrots, holy crap they're good.0 Helpful
So yummy! I put the carrots into the oven, then prep the chicken. Then throw the chicken on top of the carrots when there's 15 minutes cook time left on the carrots. Easy!0 Helpful
Delicious! I substituted thin cut pork chops for the chicken. My 4 yo loved it. Definitely will make again!0 Helpful
