Why Should I Use a Cast Iron Skillet?

BBQ Chicken Rice Bake

I love using my cast iron skillets!  I like serving dinner right out of the skillet.  Kind of rustic style.  Here are some other great benefits – A well seasoned skillet is stick free.
You can sear and move to oven with 1 pan. They are very inexpensive. They last a lifetime if properly cared for.

You’ll start my BBQ Chicken Rice Bake by adding cooked rice to your cast iron. Drizzle with a little BBQ sauce.

    Great recipe! I like it mainly because I don’t have time to make my own sauce and buying it from the store is faster. I substituted mashed potatoes instead of rice, but it was delicious!

    I love your recipes that use cooked shredded chicken so thought I should finally post a comment. We’re retired and live very close to our children so I cook supper for everyone regularly to have after work. It is hotter than hell here in Texas so the less prep & heating of the kitchen is appreciated. This dish of yours tastes like it required lots of work and everyone loves it, including the little ones. With so many delicious choices for bottled barbecue sauce here, I never make it anymore which adds to the convenience. Thanks so much for these delicious family recipes.

    A great alternative to plain rice. In the fried rice recipe, We added more mushrooms than Chicken for reducing the amount of chicken stock.
