Easy Skillet Recipes

If you are like most families leading super busy lives, you probably rely a lot on fast food or pizza delivery for dinner.  You already know eating this way is unhealthy and can get expensive but you have little energy and no time to prepare a meal.  Many people give up on ever having a sit-down home cooked meal with their families around a table.

You do not have to have a gourmet kitchen, lots of money nor tons of time to accomplish a homemade meal with your family.  Easy skillet recipes are perfect for a quick and easy weeknight meal.

My Cast Iron Skillet is one of my Favorite things in my kitchen.  I could not end this post without giving you some tips for helping you take care of your Cast Iron Skillet.

Caring For Cast Iron Skillet

As you can see in this picture, I love using my cast iron skillet.  The skillet in the picture is almost a hundred years old.  It belonged to my husband’s grandmother who gave it to me when she was in her 90’s.  She used it often and took well care of it.

  1. Rinse your cast iron cookware with hot water.  If anything is stuck on it, use a stiff brush to remove it.  DO NOT use soap!  It will break down the oil which has seasoned the cast iron.
  2. After rinsing your cast iron cookware, dry it immediately and well.  If water remains on cast iron, it will rust. After drying my skillet with a towel, I wipe it down lightly with a cooking oil.  Next,  I place it on a burner on my stove long enough to heat the entire skillet.  Heating it up makes sure no water remains.  Do not forget to wash and wipe down the lip with cooking oil.
  3. Store your cast iron in a cool, dry place.  Place folded paper towels on it before adding the lid on top.

If you love bbq, bacon, and cheese, I beg you to try this skillet chicken.  It is so tasty and one of my favorite ways to eat chicken.  How can you ever go wrong with blackening, bbq sauce, spinach, cheese, and bacon?  If you do not care for spinach, leave it off.  I love adding vegetables to everything to make the dish easier and a real one skillet one pot recipe.

Take out your skillet and prepare this easy, delicious one dish one pot BBQ Bacon Skillet Chicken Breast. Your family will be glad you did.

    This recipe looks great! However, I have a few questions about your cast iron skillet.

    I was the guy that washed his skillet with soap. Yes, I know! I bought one that had grill grates on the surface, which made it very difficult to clean. I even went as far as using degreaser to clean it. I know… I am cringing too. I learned my lesson!

    I love the idea of passing along a cast iron skillet/pot and come to think of it, my mom has her moms cast iron (about 4 of them). I was debating about asking her for one, but I want to take good care of it. My question is, instead of using a brush, I have seen some people use a credit card kinda looking thing to remove soil from the surface, opinions on that? Also, what is the purpose of storing a few squares of paper towels in it? For moisture?

    There is nothing like searing a steak on them. Yum!


    • Kevin,

      Thank you for stopping by Recipes for our Daily Bread and leaving me a comment. I love my cast iron skillet but I totally understand it can be frustrating to clean an old or damaged one. When cast iron is damaged with rust or peeling from being old, try a lot of coarse salt with a sponge. If this does not fix the problem, fill your sink with a mixture of equal parts vinegar and water. Allow the skillet to soak up to 8 hours. You can also use steel wool but no matter what you use you will have to reseason the skillet with oil and bake it.

      The paper towel is to not only for moisture but to help keep anything from scratching the skillet.

      Thank you for leaving me a comment.

      I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend.
      Many Blessings,
      Diane Roark
