Although this tasty carrot side dish sounds posh and fancy, it is fast and easy to make. Kids will love it. The lemon-lime soda, chicken broth, and fresh dill weed really bring out the sweet flavor of the carrots. If you want to step it up a notch, try the Champagne Dill Carrots.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 4 to 6 servings

Ingredients:

  • 4 Tablespoons salad oil or butter
  • 4 Tablespoons flour

  • 1-1/2 pounds carrots, peeled and sliced into coin shapes
