Marinate chicken for at least 15 minutes in Worcestershire Sauce, salt, pepper and garlic. In a cast iron skillet, heat EVOO and lightly brown chicken on both sides. Blanche carrots and veggies (to blanche is to plunge food into boiling water for a few seconds or minutes, then remove and place in ice water). Once the vegetables have been blanched add to chicken.
