Cast Iron Roasted Chicken Breast and Baby Potato Recipe

Hello Dear foodie friends,

I love cooking with my cold cast pans but avoid them because they are just too heavy.  But on the other hand, the food does turn out so crispy.  The other day I was in my pantry, looking for ingredients for another recipe I was going to make later in the week.  I saw my pans sitting on the shelf and I remembered that the potatoes turn out so crispy in these pans.

I marinated the chicken breasts in olive oil, with a dash of salt, pepper, and oregano overnight.  Most do not prefer this method unless they are going to bbq the chicken breasts.  I should also mention that I do not flatten out the chicken breasts for this specific recipe.

You can also make this recipe in a regular baking pan and it comes out just as delicious but the potatoes will not turn out as crispy as they do in the cast iron pan.  The reason is that the cast iron pan maintains the heat and this is a huge game-changer.  I invested in Cast Iron pans many years ago and I love them.  I should use them more often, I would but they are so heavyyyy!!

Have a great day everyone!!
