While the chops bake, Chris speeds nicely seasoned Garlic Carrots to her skillet. She uses bite-sized carrots that don't need to be cut or peeled and keeps a jar of prepared minced garlic on hand to save on prep and cleanup time.
I like to make this side dish when I want to add some color to my meal. The touch of maple syrup is a nice surprise and so compatible with the carrot flavor. The crunch of pecans adds a special touch.
