Roast Chicken With Spring Vegetables

Use skin-on chicken breasts in this dish for depth and flavor. Pro-tip: Tilt your Lodge pan away from you and spoon the drippings back onto the chicken to add moisture as it cooks.

Roast Chicken With Spring Vegetables


  • ¼ cup olive oil, divided
  • 3 skin-on chicken breasts, boneless
  • 4 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and halved
  • ½ cup marinated artichokes, quartered
  • ¼ cup marinated artichoke pickling liquid
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 cup asparagus, ends trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces on a bias
  • ¼ cup parsley, roughly chopped, plus a little for garnish
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Baguette for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a Chef Collection 12 Inch Cast Iron Everyday Pan. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Sear the chicken — skin-side down first — until golden brown, 10-12 minutes. Transfer the chicken onto another plate.
  3. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil. Add the mushrooms and sear until golden brown, 5 minutes. Add artichokes, pickling liquid, water, and cayenne and season with salt and pepper. Cook the mixture just until it’s warmed through (about 3 minutes) and add chicken back to the pan. Transfer to oven and cook until the chicken reaches 160 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes, then transfer the pieces to a cutting board. Let rest for 5 minutes.
  4. While the chicken is resting, mix in the asparagus and 2 tablespoons of parsley. Cook on the stove top until the asparagus is tender, 5 minutes. Slice the chicken on a bias and lay on top of the vegetable mixture. Garnish with remaining parsley and serve.
