Really easy and tasty. I used dried thyme as I used all my fresh thyme up in the roast chicken, would recommend.

Initially made this for Christmas dinner but they went down so well I make them regularly. The carrots are juicy and full of flavor with the herbs and honey - the whole family love them. Really easy dish as you can leave them to simmer while doing other things.
