Skillet recipes are all over Pinterest lately—and for good reason. Cast iron skillets are naturally nonstick and therefore require less oil, and they can be transferred from stove top to oven which means fewer dishes. This skillet recipe is pretty simple—yup, you guessed it—asparagus, sweet potato, and chicken (and some seasonings, of course!).
