The 25 Best Things to Cook with a Cast-Iron Skillet

Cooking How-to's




Chicken Pot Pie

Whole Roasted Chicken

Red Snapper

Mac and Cheese


Preheat the skillet while you’re prepping the bird. Once its ready to go, place the seasoned and oiled chicken in the hot skillet and slide into the oven. This recipe doesn’t mention it, but turning the chicken once with about a third of the cook time remaining isn’t a bad idea. This gives you crispy skin on two sides, and more bird to render fat from for a gravy later.
