I love my cast iron, and although I don't have a big selection, I use what I have.

I have a small skillet, just large enough for a big pork chop. I salt and pepper the chop then melt Ghee/Clarified Butter in the pan. I give the chop a good sear and then add sprigs of fresh Rosemary. Then the pan goes in a 400 degree oven. I'm not sure for how long - normally I pull it out, stick the meat thermometer in it and it's done - maybe 15-20 minutes. I will baste the chop with the butter at least once while in the oven and then again when I put it out.

I need more cast iron. I'm on a FB page for cast iron cooking...the recipes all look great. The only pan I have is HUGE, but a giant blueberry cobbler is more a need than want. lol

I hate to type it, but some of those gianormous CI pans are way too heavy for my wrists. I am on a couple cast iron cooking facebook groups as well. They need to have a CI cooking for low cal, low carb! A lot of the recipes are most definitely drool worthy, but not low cal / low carb!

My only cast iron ware is Le Creuset, which I love, although it is so very heavy. It cooks food wonderfully and cleans up easily, but I can foretell a time when I'm a little old lady and won't want/be able to drag it out:(.

The two pieces I use the most are my soup pot and my saute pan. I previously cooked with the grill pan more, but have gotten out of the habit, and have found that I rarely bother with the Dutch oven (which I thought I'd use a lot, especially after my sister sent me a copy of one of her favorite cook books "Glorious One-Pot Meals" by Elizabeth Yarnell).

Back in the day, when I had real, uncoated cast iron, I'd say my favorite thing to make in it was cornbread :) - to me, there's just something about whipping up a batch, spur of the minute, to accompany fish or soup or whatever.

I used to own one and cooked with it often. I plan on getting another iron skillet and get back in the habit. Food tastes wonderful when prepared in an iron skillet!

I just fixed a good one tonight. Cut the recipe in half with 2 chicken breasts so I could have one tomorrow - so good, I wanted to eat that tonight as well!

Chicken with Rosemarey Butter Sauce

4 bonless skinless chicken breast halves
4 tablespoons butter, divided
1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook chicken in 1 tablespoon butter for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 164. Remove and keep warm.

Add wine or chicken broth to the pan; cook over medium-low heat stirring to loosen browned bits from the pan. Add cream and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook and stir until slightly thickened. Stir in rosemary and remaining butter until blended. Serve sauce with chicken.

4 servings

Per Serving:
351 calories
25 g fat (15g saturaged fat)
148 mg sodium
2g carbohydrate
24g protein


I used chicken broth and it was very good.
