Molasses Glazed Carrots and Chicken

by zesty on July 22, 2009 · 7 comments

WOW I am exhausted!  I just got back from checking out the house progress for today.  Garage footings are in place and things are taking shape.

I didn’t really have  much time to prepare dinner as I was invited to an off site meeting for work and homemade burgers were provided.  As I was checking my cooking bank – aka (all my cooked meals I have not posted yet) and I came across what I remember as a 5 ingredient chicken dish that will tantalize your taste buds.


This is definitely one you have to try.


  • Chicken Breasts
  • Carrots
  • 1/3 Cup Molasses
  • Black Pepper
  • Onion Soup Mix ( low sodium)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add chicken and carrots ( cut in quarters) and place in roasting pan.
  3. Add remaining ingredients, cover and roast for about 35-40 minutes.
  4. ENJOY!

Zesty tip: Try not to overcook chicken, use the clear running juice technique to ensure the chicken is cooked but not dried and out and rubber-like.

I LOVE 5 ingredient recipes for when you do not have any time. I bet this is a fantastic sweet, salty combination that rocks! I never thought of using molasses with chicken – it sounds delish!

THANK YOU ZESTY for the Voting Shout Out! I am trying to keep my lead until the polls close tomorrow! You rock!!!

P.S. Thanks Pam!
