Chicken, Broccoli, Carrots and Red Pepper cooked together in a Cast Iron Skillet! Sheet Pan dinner are all the rage right now but a meal cooked in a Cast Iron Skillet is even better! Cooking in a Cast Iron is so versatile and easy. It is super easy to come home through everything together in 10 mins, put it in the oven and let it cook. This dinner is really easy. I use frozen broccoli and shredded carrots to simplify the prep. Then I just have to dice the peppers while the chicken is searing. Why sear the chicken? I think that it helps to lock in the flavor and juices while cooking.
How to make:
Heat the Cast Iron with some oil over medium low. While its cut the Chicken Breast in have and season. Once the skillet is hot add the chicken, cook for 3 minutes, flip, cook for another 3 minutes. While the chicken is cooking dice up the red pepper, get out some shredded carrots (or chop the up) and grab a bag of frozen broccoli out of the freezer. You can use fresh broccoli if you rather. After cooking the chicken add the remaining ingredients. Put the skillet in the oven and cook for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes pull out and let cool.
