Foodie Friday {“Grilled Chicken”}…

Happy happy Friday!  It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood!  I spent the morning reading, walking with Raymond and Cody, chatting about childhood memories {Raymond and I have the best convos}, eating breakfast, then writing!

You see … I need to update this website.  I’m in dire need of something that is much more organized and pretty.  Something magical is in the works, but in order to go from “current” to “complete” the designers need content.  That content needs to come from me.

I finally finished putting together the content today.  I am SO excited about the final product!

But anywho … I’m supposed to talk about recipes today! 🙂

Today’s recipe is pretty easy and you might say to yourself, “Why did she even bother?”

I bothered writing this because there was some interest in the topic at my last Girl’s Retreat.

Without further ado …

Grilled Chicken Supplies

“GRILLED” CHICKEN (OVEN BAKED W/CAST IRON SKILLET)

  • 3-4 chicken breasts, thawed
    • More or less depending on how many you are feeding
  • Canola oil
  • Favorite seasoning
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place cast iron skillet in oven while preheating.
  3. Fillet the chicken breasts.  *Optional step:  I like making the chicken go further.  You know … bang for that buck!
  4. Prepare salad.  We always eat our “grilled” chicken on a salad, so while the oven preheats I prepare the salad.
  5. Remove pan from oven.
  6. Drizzle with canola oil.  Just enough to cover the bottom.
  7. Season chicken with your favorite spice.
    1. Right now mine is Weber Beer Can Chicken.
  8. Don’t forget to season both sides!
  9. Place chicken in pan and back in oven.
  10. Cook for 7-8 minutes — then turn.
  11. Cook for another 5-6 minutes.
    1. Keep a watch on the chicken.  The time depends on the thickness of the breasts.
    2. Thicker the breast, the longer it should cook.

My favorite cast iron skillet?  The griddle style!

Cleaning a cast iron skillet?  There are several suggested ways.  I have found this to be the easiest:

  • Place 2-3 inches of water in cast iron skillet.
  • Place on stovetop and boil for 5-10 minutes.
  • Discard water and wipe with paper towel.

Enjoy!
