Skillet Baked Chicken and Tomatoes

Andy Anderson !


This is an extremely easy dish to put together, and serve. It’s cooked on the stovetop and then baked using the same pan.

I love this dish all year long, and as the weather begins to turn toward the cool side, I just add a bit more cayenne, and pepper.

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

How to Make Skillet Baked Chicken and Tomatoes


  2. Gather your ingredients.
  3. Place a rack in the lower position, and preheat the oven to 325 (165c).
  4. Add the olive oil, cayenne, salt and pepper to a bowl, and combine.
  5. Add the chicken leg quarters, and toss to coat with the olive oil.
  6. Add the wine, tomatoes, and garlic to an ovenproof, skillet (cast iron is excellent), over medium heat.

  8. Add the chicken and drizzle any remaining olive oil from the bowl, over the top.
