Blacklock Cast Iron verses acidic food

We needed to whip up a quick dinner tonight. Something fast after a long day of work. The Blacklock Skillet was sitting on the stove so we figured we might as well use it.

This is also for the naysayers of cooking acidic foods in cast iron. We cooked this up with several tomatoes as an ingredient.

Cooking in the LODGE Blacklock Skillet

We had some left over Angel Hair pasta from a meal the night before. A raw chicken breast in the fridge and some other common ingredients available.

We sliced the chicken in rather thin stripes and started browning them in some olive oil. The rest of the ingredients we added in on top to cook until tender.  You are on your own for quantity.  We just threw this together without measuring anything.

1 Chicken Breast cut in strips
Olive Oil
Minced Fresh Garlic
1/4 Sweet Onion cut in thin strips
3 Fresh Roma tomatoes coarsely diced
Cilantro
Sweet Basil & Oregano Bruschetta Seasoning Mix (McCormick)
Salt & Pepper
Parmesan Cheese

The Chicken and Tomato medley was served over the rewarmed Angel Hair which was then lightly buttered. The Chicken and Tomato mixture was then topped with grated Parmesan Cheese.

Again we were cooking in the Skillet with only the factory triple seasoning. It cleaned up perfectly, and with ease, with just hot water. There is no visible change to the skillets cooking surface or seasoning having just cooked tomatoes in it.
