Lemon Chicken Skillet with Veggies and Potatoes

I love cooking with cast iron skillets because they are an ideal choice for meats and other foods that need high heat.  If you are cooking with healthy oils, onions, garlic, spices or peppers these skillets do wonders for transferring the flavors around.. potatoes are a testament to this as they hold in all of those flavors inside while the outside gets nice and crispy.  If it’s not too formal an occasion, I also like serving right from the skillet (as they often do in breakfast joints).  It makes it fun for the person eating (maybe you!).  Skillets also stay warm or even hot for quite a while (so be mindful not to serve it up when the skillet is too hot).

Below is one of my husband’s favorite recipes:  Lemon Chicken Skillet with Veggies and Potatoes.

Cast Iron is also oven-safe and actually easy to clean. The best way to clean cast iron skillets are by hand, just use a soft sponge and warm water. Avoid detergents, liquid soaps and also refrain from using metal scouring pads as they can scratch, damage, and remove the layers of the skillet.  I try to clean the skillet when its still warm , simply use coarse salt and softly rub with sponge. Dry pat immediately.

    Your recipe looks sooooooo good! I love cast iron skillets, but now we have a glass stove top so I can’t use one anymore. Sure miss it though.

    We also love cooking with cast iron skillets but washing and cleaning it only requires more care. It’s a good investment piece to have in the kitchen.
