Chicken Tomato Saute + Nonstick Skillet Giveaway!

Post image for Chicken Tomato Saute + Nonstick Skillet Giveaway!

There are only 2 teaspoons of olive oil in this entire heart healthy Chicken Tomato Sauté dish – I was amazed! Most recipes usually call for 2 tablespoons of oil, but when you’re using a nonstick pan you scarcely need any at all. I often forget this about my nonstick pans. I usually just glug in a tablespoon or two regardless of the type of pan I’m using (I blame too much cooking TV!).

The folks from Teflon sent me a Farberware Restaurant Pro 12-Inch Skillet to try out (they’re also giving one away to one lucky reader – find out how to enter at the end of this post!) in honor of February’s Heart Health Month campaign. If it looks like there’s a ton of food in that skillet in the photo it’s because there is. This is a wide, deep pan with sloped sides – almost like a wok – and it easily accommodated all of the lean chicken breast and fresh vegetables I chopped to prepare this dish. And, as you might expect, everything slid out easily when it came time to serve.

I don’t use nonstick pans for everything – when I want to get a good sear on meat or I need to transfer a skillet from the stovetop to the oven at high heat I’ll go with cast iron or stainless steel – but they’re very much a part of my everyday cooking. And from now on I’ll be going a little easier on the oil when I use them! Read on for the recipe for today’s Chicken Tomato Sauté plus enter to win a Farberware Restaurant Pro 12-Inch Skillet of your own! [THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED]

Looks like a great recipe. If using a non-stick skillet lets you use only two TEASPOONS of oil for all those ingredients…sign me up! I’m going to give this one a try!
Thanks for sharing.

I love fried fish but try to keep fried foods to a minimum. With this skillet, I’d only need a small amount of oil to get the flavoe of fried.

I think I’ll make stir-fry recipes in the skillet. My hubs and I are trying to eat more veggies, so I’ve been trying out several stir fry recipes and love that you need a small amount of oil when using the nonstick skillet.

Many times I start cooking on the stovetop and finish in the oven. Hope this pan is suitable for that.

The instructions for the pan say it is safe up to 400 degrees.

Oh, I love a good skillet dinner! And that’s exactly what I’ll cook when I win the pan. 🙂 (And Adam will use it for weekend breakfasts.)

I use my current non-stick skillet for pretty much everything. Unless I’m trying to get a good sear on a steak, then I use the cast-iron. But my non-stick is my go to. Having two would just be doubly awesome (and I would have to do dishes less often, which is the awesomest).
