Why Should I Use a Cast Iron Skillet?

Chicken and 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.

Tips For Making BBQ Chicken and Rice Bake

*Use a Rotisserie chicken for speedy prep time.  You can also use an 11×7 inch baking dish if you don’t have a cast iron skillet to use.

*Serve with a nice green salad and crusty bread.  Garlic bread goes great with this dish as well.

*Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

    My kids absolutely love rice so this sounds like the perfect dish to fix for them. Plus, I love how you do it all in one pan and you have such pretty presentation. I am going to try his bbq chicken rice tomorrow!

    Made this and it was delicious! Husband and kiddo were huge fans. I would love to add one more veggie to this. Any suggestions as to what might be good? Broccoli maybe? Thoughts?

    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.
