Roast vegetables at 450º for 30 to 35 minutes or until tender. Halfway through roasting time, remove garlic cloves and stir vegetables; set aside garlic cloves for sauce and return other vegetables to oven to finish roasting.

Prepare sauce just before vegetables are done. Melt spread in a 2-quart saucepan. Blend in flour until smooth. Press pulp of roasted garlic cloves into pan.

Continue to cook and stir for 1 minute. Remove from heat and cover to keep warm.

Grill chicken or broil when vegetables are removed from oven. Cut cooked chicken into slices.

To serve, spoon roasted vegetables onto a serving dish. Top with chicken slices. Reheat cream sauce, if needed. Pour cream sauce on top.
