Why Cast iron
I love cooking in cast iron! I have actually switch most of my cookware to only cast iron. Not only is it durable, but it heats evenly and it can go from stove top to the oven in a flash. I can't tell you how much I recommend a good set of cast iron enough!
Low Carb Side Option
This recipe is ready in under 30 minutes thanks to the cast iron skillet. Start this tasty dinner on the stove and finish it up in the oven while you are making sides. This Cauliflower Rice is a great option if you are trying to keep the entire meal low carb.
Speaking of low carb, if you or someone you love is eating KETO, or low carb this meal is a terrific option. If you aren't low carb, it is still an amazing dinner that shouldn't be missed.
Added bonus: Take your leftovers, cut them up, and fill up a pita pocket with your Mediterranean Chicken for a tasty lunch or even second meal!
