Dutch Oven + Chicken

Dutch Oven + Chicken

Project 365 Photography Challenge – #5

Last night, my new Lodge 6-quart enameled cast iron dutch oven was delivered from Amazon. Yay! I have been wanting an affordable dutch oven that was a pretty color for a while, and this one seems to be what I was looking for all along. My first dish cooked in the dutch oven was Jamie Oliver’s Chicken in Coconut Milk.

  • Love the photo!
    I have a dutch oven at home and have no idea how to use it or when to use it!
    Is it similar to a slow cooker?

      Hi Zurry! Yes, it’s a good tool for foods that you want to slow cook like stews and roasts. I like it for making chicken noodle soup. It has other uses though. I’ve seen some recipes for using it to make no-knead bread like this one from FrugalLivingNW.com. I hope to experiment with my new Dutch oven more often so please stay tuned. 🙂

  • You cook and I love to eat so this is a wonderful surprise to have found your blog! I’m swooning over this dutch oven picture. It looks so good 🙂
