    An electric skillet is nice to have for those times when a recipe is too big to fit in a frypan.

    Nothing specific is coming to mind here. I did type in electric skillet up above under Search. Much to my delight, the search feature actually brought up a bunch of information! Hope it helps you.

    I use mine to make anything I would make in my oven or stove. Roasts,chops,burgers, you name it. Its like using the stove burner for cooking and when you put the lid on, its like using the oven for cooking. Hope that makes sense! Take care!

    Redraspberrygirl -

    I just went to the link posted by Jennihusker a while back, which I found when I typed in electric skillet on the Search above.

    It takes you to www.cooks.com, and when you do electric skillet on their recipe search, it comes up with at least a million recipes!

    Thanks for posting this question, and thanks, Jennihusker, for the link. I will find lots of uses for my electric skillet from this! (Good thing I bought paper today for my printer!)

    ARROZ CON POLLO (Rice with Chicken)

    This is a great meal in one pot to cook on the patio. I do it in a deep electric fry pan. All you need alongside it is a salad.

    In a little butter in Dutch oven or deep electric fry pan, brown in a mixture of butter and veg oil: 2-1/2 to 3 lbs chicken pieces (skin removed). Drain on paper towels. Set aside

    Soften in a little butter in Dutch oven or deep electric fry pan:
    1/2 cup finely chopped onion (about 3 mins)
    Add::
    1 large clove garlic, minced
    1/2 tsp Spanish paprika (that's the hot one)
    1/2 tsp Creole or Cajun spice
    1/4 cup chopped green pepper
    Cook, stirring, about 1 minute more

    Add: 1 cup raw rice
    Stir until rice is coated..

    Add:
    1/4 tsp pepper
    1/2 tsp sugar
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 large ripe tomato, peeled, seeded and chopped
    1 cup peas, fresh or frozen
    2 - 2-1/2 cups chicken broth.
    Bring to boil

    Return chicken pieces to Dutch oven or electric fry pan. Mix rice and liquid so it covers chicken pieces. Bake, covered, in Dutch oven at 375º to 400º F for 45 to 60 minutes or until chicken is done and rice is tender. Add chicken broth as required.

    OR: Cook in deep electric frying pan, about 45 minutes at 220 (I don't know if that's Celsius or Fahrenheit)

    Stir in : 2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley.
    Adjust seasoning. Let stand, covered 5 minutes off heat.
    Serve direct from casserole or electric frying pan.

    NOTE: This is essentially the same as Chicken Pilaf, except the chicken is in whole pieces.

    I don't know anything about crock pots, so I can't tell you if it would work in one.

    CHICKEN CACCIATORE (ELECTRIC SKILLET)

    6 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    1/3 cup All-purpose flour
    1/2 tsp Salt
    1/4 tsp Pepper
    1/4 cup Oil
    1 large Onion, sliced
    1 large Green pepper, cut into strips
    1/2 lb Fresh mushrooms, sliced
    2 Cloves garlic, minced
    3 cans Italian tomatoes
    1 tsp Dried oregano leaves
    1/2 tsp Dried basil leaves

    Preheat 12-inch electric skillet to 350F. Combine flour, salt and pepper; dredge chicken. Add 2 tablespoons oil to skillet; saute chicken for 4 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Remove chicken and set aside. Add remaining oil to skillet; saute onion and the next 3 ingredients until onions are translucent, about 4 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and spices, breaking up tomatoes with spoon. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to 225F and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes stirring occasionally. Add the chicken; cook for 15 minutes longer until chicken is done. Would be great if you could find a way to cook some spaghetti to put it over!

    I know how you feel. I cooked alot with the help of an electric skillet when we built our home. This was always a hit ....Melt a stick of margarine in the skillet, at 325 degrees.
    Mix your favorite meatloaf recipe & place in middle of skillet.
    Place a bag of frozen green beans in one end of skillet & 5 med. potatoes, unpeeled & cut into wedges at other end.
    Cook covered for 45 minutes. Remove all at once & make gravy with the leftover drippings. This all cooks together & gets done all at the same time. Its yummy too!!!

    We love this dish and like to make it when having a party. Double or triple the recipe and it makes a huge tray. Always one of the first things to go.

    KIELBASA WITH SWEET AND SOUR KRAUT

    1 Package (1lb) kielbasa, sliced
    1 package (1lb) or 2 cans saeurkraut, drained but not squeezed dry.
    1/2 to 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    1 or 2 onions sliced thin
    1 stick of margarine or butter

    In electric skillet (or large frypan with cover on top of stove) melt margarine. Add sliced onions, cook over medium heat until translucent. Do not burn or brown. Add 1/2 cup of brown sugar to onions and mix well. Add drained sauerkraut and mix well. Add sliced kielbas and stir. Cook on low heat for 45 minutes, stirring often and adding more brown sugar and margarine as needed. You want the saeurkraut to be soft and have a smoky flavor. YUM this is good! Dinner all in 1 pot.
