|I have a new favorite frying pan, cast iron. I know, a cast iron is nothing new but it is to me. I had one years ago but didn’t like the fact that you shouldn’t use soap to clean it and I could never get those bits and pieces off of the pan and it never seemed clean. I wanted to try again so I purchased a Lodge Cast Iron Skillet from Amazon on sale for only $13.39. I was also looking on how to clean cast iron and came across this chain link looking cleaner. It’s called the Ringer and cost $16.95. I love it! It cleans all the bits and pieces and the pan is clean. I also bought the Lodge oil spray which I spray the pan to season after each cleaning. I’m now a lover of cast iron for so many reasons. It can withstand heat high heat which is perfect for foods that needs to be seared, and creates a beautiful browning effect. It can be used both on the stove top and in the oven. It’s also affordable and will last a lifetime. It really has become my go to fry pan.
Here is the recipe that inspired this purchase, Prosciutto Wrapped Stuffed Chicken Breasts from Chrissy Teigen’s Cookbook, Cravings.
This girl can cook!!
The chicken is stuffed with goat cheese, cream cheese, garlic, thyme and bacon. It’s wrapped in prosciutto and then baked with cherry tomatoes. What happens is the cherry tomatoes burst and the goat cheese mixture oozes out in the pan making a delicious sauce to spoon all over the chicken. It’s delicious!!
