If you’ve not noticed, I’m a huge fan of cooking in a cast iron skillet. I love everything about cast iron cooking. One of my favorite cast iron skillet recipes to make is Garlic Parmesan Chicken.

I love how chicken comes out so crispy and flavorful in an iron skillet. Adding garlic, onions, and parmesan cheese makes this dish even tastier. It’s also an economical meal… it won’t break the bank. It’s a healthy dinner, too. I don’t add a lot of Parmesan cheese, and garlic and onions are good for you.

Try the recipe for yourself:

  1. In a large sealed tight container add your chicken thighs and seasonings let sit for 1 hour at room temperature.
  2. In cast iron skillet add 3 tbsp. olive oil and place on your stovetop at medium to high heat. 
  3. Once you start to hear the oil “pop” add your chicken skin side up and cook on medium for 5-7 minutes until the thighs look crispy, then rotate placing the skin part down and cook for another 5-7 minutes.
  4. Pull the chicken thighs out and place to the side.

  6. Turn off your heat on your stovetop and place the chicken back in the skillet. 
  7. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.
  8. Once your oven reaches the desired temperature place the skillet in the oven for 25 min.
