Heat the butter, olive oil, sugar, garlic and thyme in a large saute pan set on high heat. When the mixture begins to bubble and thicken, about 2 minutes, add the carrots. Cook for 2 minutes, until the carrots begin to release their juices. Add the chicken stock, cover and cook for 2 minutes. Remove the lid, stir in the salt and pepper and cook for 2-3 minutes longer, until most of the liquid has evaporated and the carrot are covered with a shiny glaze. Serve at once.
