13″ Square Dutch Oven Chicken

We recently designed and produced one of our newer products, the 13″ Square Dutch Oven. This cast iron Dutch oven is unique not only because it is square, but also because it features a legless, smooth bottom and a lid that doubles as a grill that you can use on your range.

As with all of our Dutch ovens, the Square Dutch Oven features a thermometer hole on the rim of the lid so that you can measure internal food temperatures and know right when your meal reaches the perfect temperature.

In order to get “action shots” of our cooking equipment, more often than not, it requires making some great food! And believe me, this meal that Matt A prepared was delicious and not very difficult at all.

This is a perfect, not overly complicated meal that we’d like to share with you!
