Chicken & Pork Parmesan Dip in a Cast Iron Skillet

Andy Anderson !


I started with a typical chicken Parmesan recipe, and then made a few modifications, to make it into a really yummy dip.

I used a combination of ground chicken and pork, and then a few spices to give it some kick. You can make this a day ahead of time, and the bake it on the big day.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

1/4 lb
ground chicken
1/4 lb
ground pork
1 Tbsp
grapeseed oil
1/2 c
yellow onion, finely chopped
3 clove
garlic, minced
3 medium
tomatoes, blanched, peeled, and diced
1/2 tsp
crushed red pepper
1/2 tsp
dried basil
1/2 tsp
dried oregano
salt, kosher variety, to taste
black pepper, freshly ground, to taste
2 c
mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 c
ricotta cheese
3 Tbsp
fresh parsley, chopped
1/3 c
parmesan cheese, grated


2Gather your ingredients.
3Add the grapeseed oil to a skillet over medium heat.
4Add the onion, and sauté for about 4 minutes.
5The onions will begin to soften, but not brown.
6Add the garlic and red pepper flakes, and sauté until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
7Add the chicken and pork, and sauté until cooked through, about 5 minutes.
8Chef’s Note: While the pork and chicken are cooking, add a pinch or two of salt, and a few twists of freshly ground black pepper.
9Add the tomatoes, basil, and oregano, and stir to combine.
10Allow the mixture to slowly simmer over medium-low heat until 3/4 of the moisture has evaporated, about 12 – 15 minutes.
11Remove from the heat.
12Place a rack in the lower position, and preheat the oven to 375f (190c).
13Remove half of the tomato mixture from the skillet, and reserve.
14Mix 1 cup of the mozzarella, the ricotta, and 2 tablespoons of the parsley, to a small bowl.
15Add the ricotta mixture to the top of the tomato mixture in the skillet.
16Evenly spread the remainder of the tomato mixture to the top.
17Top with the remaining mozzarella and Parmesan.
18Place in the preheated oven, and cook until nice and bubbly, and the cheese begins to brown, about 25 minutes.
20Sprinkle the additional chopped parsley on top, and serve while still nice and hot with some toasted bread slices, and/or some chips. Enjoy.
21Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
