Crispy Cast Iron Chicken



  • Liberally season chicken with my Seasoned Salt, set aside for at least 15 minutes or chill for up to a few days
  • Preheat Oven to 350 F
  • Heat your cast iron skillet over medium heat, add Fat
  • Lightly brown chicken on all sides
  • Bake (in the cast iron skillet, uncovered) at 350 F for 30-45 minutes (until chicken is cooked through and skin is crispy)
  • Remove from oven and let rest 5-10 minutes prior to serving
  • Enjoy!


If you are making more chicken than will fit in your cast iron skillet, brown in batches and bake on a parchment lined cookie sheet with sides or casserole dish.
Reserve any drippings in your pan to use later as a cooking fat - use to roast vegetables, fry potatoes, etc. It will taste amazing!
