I had been wanting a cast iron skillet for ages so last winter my Mom bought me one. Actually I think it was a birthday gift for my husband but what’s his is mine, so whatevs. 😉 This is the one she got us, and I LOVE it. I’ve been playing with new ways to use it and found some recipe inspiration for an Easy Skillet Sesame Chicken recipe in a recent issue of Rachael Ray Every Day (use code SEEMOMCLICK to save 20%). Love that mag!
Rachael used a whole chicken though, and this mommy doesn’t have time for whole chickens. So I reworked it a bit and used thighs and it came out amazing!
The kids ate this so fast and everyone had at least two helpings. It was flavorful and delicious, and although there are a handful of fresh ingredients here it’s still pretty easy because you’re just throwing them in one bowl to make the glaze.
I’ve included the recipe for the veggies we had on the side, snow peas and mushrooms, but of course you can serve this with whatever you’d like. The chicken is definitely the star of the meal!

Note that I used a 12″ skillet because that’s what I have, and I bought enough chicken to fill it. You can easily adjust your amounts if you have a smaller skillet.
This Easy Skillet Sesame Chicken is a new family favorite. The kids are asking me to make it again so it’s going into the regular rotation. Hope you enjoy it, too!
