Skillet Fried Chicken

Skillet-Fried Chicken

    There's nothing like a well-fried chicken when you want a delicious, crunchy, and easy-to-make recipe. That is why our Swedish Chef, Jens Retlev, brings you this authoritative, concise yet unique fried chicken recipe using Ronneby Bruk cast iron cookware. The recipe is full of spice and sharp flavors with little sweetness of brown sugar, giving your taste buds a lively boost.

    Ronneby Bruk cast iron is the best type of cook wear to use for this recipe, given its superior heat-retaining qualities that are especially useful when you want to produce an evenly golden crust that accentuates the flavor of the chicken itself, allowing it to shine.
