The Best Cast Iron Skillet Chicken Soup

There is no better piece of kitchen equipment for making foolproof recipes than a cast-iron skillet, especially when it comes to homemade chicken soup. And here, we use two!

The tender, juicy chicken breast in this soup is flavored with herbs and aromatics, including parsley, garlic, onion and black pepper. The addition of savory chicken bone broth guarantees the flavor factor. Chicken bone broth amps up the nutrient profile of this dish thanks to the naturally occurring proteins, collagen and gelatin, which contain amino acids that support gut health and the immune system.

If you’re new to cooking with cast iron, one reason why we believe it’s a kitchen must have is because it provides a natural non-stick coating without the use of chemicals, which ensures your meal doesn’t spoil before you can eat it. Using cast iron to cook animal protein is also one of the best ways to get meat to cook thoroughly and evenly for optimal taste and texture.

If you don’t have two mini cast iron skillets on hand, you can use one big one to make two servings.
