How To Make One Skillet Chicken and Veggies

  • In a cast iron pan over medium-high heat, heat cooking oil. 
  • Salt and pepper both sides of chicken breasts and add to pan. 
  • Cook for 2-3 minutes on both sides to give chicken a golden brown color. 
  • Remove chicken from pan and set aside. 
  • Add butternut squash, brussel sprouts, and onion and cook over medium high heat for 5-7 minutes until vegetables are slightly softened. 
  • Add in diced apples, salt and pepper, oregano, basil, and balsamic vinegar and cook for another 5 minutes. 
  • Return the chicken to the pan and stir in bacon and cheese. 
  • Place entire pan into oven and cook for an additional 20 minutes or until chicken and vegetables are cooked through.

  • When a cast iron pan gets hot, it stays hot for a long time. Cast iron pans are ideal for searing meat because of this.
  • Cast iron is ideal for keeping food warm since it retains heat for a long period.
  • By seasoning your cast iron pans every time you use them, you are making them better.
  • A limited amount of iron is absorbed into the foods during the cooking process.
