Apricot Glazed Carrots Recipe @pinch

Roasted carrots are a great anytime side dish. They're easy enough to serve alongside baked chicken and can be fancy enough for Easter dinner. We love how the apricot and citrus flavors blend together in a yummy sauce that coats the sweet carrots. The sauce is buttery, sweet, a tad tangy, and has a touch of spice. Yum! Our daughter made this for us using a mixture of carrots and parsnips. Delicious!!
