This One Pot Citrus Chicken made with delicious veggies and citrus fruit is great for a quick meal especially on a busy night. And the best part is you are only using one pan so you don’t have a large mess of dishes in the kitchen. This is one simple meal that can be done in 30 minutes or less and full of flavor. If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, I highly recommend getting one. They will last longer than you regular cookware and have so many benefits to them such as healthier cooking, easy clean up, and versatile.
