Cast Iron & Chicken on the Egg?

I recently got my first cast iron skillet and I've had great results cooking steak on it in the Egg.[p]I'm wondering if cast iron would work for chicken? I'm considering trying to sear some boneless/skinless thighs this way. Would this work or would the "sear" really be horribly burnt chicken?


  • BluesnBBQ,
    steve, you don't want to nuke it, but at around 450 degrees dome temp, its a great way to do chicken. . .smear it with butter first, then as its 'roasting', drizzle the melted butter/juices back over the parts till done .. .best if you still have some skin on, but give it a try regardless. . .won't take too long though. ..then deglaze the pan with some white wine and a chicken broth for a great pan sauce. . ..good stuff. . .
