Looking for something for dinner tonight?? Check out one of my most favorite recipes, Citrus Chicken Cast Iron Skillet.

Citrus Chicken Cast Iron Skillet

There is nothing better than an action-packed meal that is full of flavor and doesn’t take a long time to make. What also makes it better is not having a million dishes to clean up or having my food stick to the bottom of my pans. That is seriously the worst. I have started cooking a lot with my cast iron skillet. There are two reasons why I love to use a cast iron pan when I am cooking. Number one is that nothing will stick to it AND it is super easy to clean (okay, maybe three reasons, but who is counting). The second reason is because a cast iron pan is seasoned, so it picks up on a ton of flavors and locks them in. Anything cooked in a cast iron pan is pretty much perfection, and you can’t really mess it up.

In this recipe, I am combining our meat and veggies all in one pan. I try and cook very simple while having a ton of flavor and a full meal. My kids love this meal and it is so filling. This dish goes great with a side salad and fresh garlic bread. My Citrus Chicken Cast Iron Skillet is perfect for any weeknight meal and can be dressed up enough for a delicious weekend meal for date night.
