Lemon Chicken & Ranch Carrots. YUM!
This recipe tasted good and it felt like a light meal. The chicken was moist and I attribute that to spooning the sauce over the chicken periodically while it was cooking. This is a dish we will make again!!
The Ranch Carrots are a family favorite of ours. They are easy to make and best of all, they taste really good! Usually I buy the baby carrots from the grocery but this time, Garcia's Gardens had 2lb of carrots at HHM so it was perfect! At the moment, Garcia's Gardens don't have carrots listed. We are hoping they will post some soon!
From HHM: Chicken, carrots, feta, tomatoes, and lettuce. The carrots and tomatoes aren't available this week at HHM.
