Does anyone know where I can find these?

At a local restaurant, they make a fabulous "Chicken Skillet" on a flat, handled cast iron pan.

Diameter is approximately 8-10", and they load the seasoned iron with fresh chicken breast chunks and veggies that have been tossed in an herbed garlic butter. Pop it into the oven, and it grills itself. It is served to you nested on a wicker/bamboo plate, still sizzling.

Can I FIND these pans? NOOOOOO. Does the restaurant know where I can get them? NOOOOO.

Am I getting frustrated? YESSSSS.

Would love love LOVE it if anyone knew where I could order such a thing so I could create this masterpiece at home!

I think you are talking about a fajita pan - check out these

Check out your larger kitchen stores - Bed Bath & Beyond, Linens N' Things - even Penney's/Sears may have them - and there's always the Internet.

Well, holy Hannah.

One post, and all of my dreams have come true! :oD

Tell me....why is it that no one knew the correct name for these seemingly easy to find pans...including myself? Time to broaden the horizons, apparently. LOL.

Thank you thank you thank you!!

Finally - my life has meaning!

Do you eat much Mexican food? When they come out of the kitchen with one all sizzling, hissing, and steaming and spreading that wonderful smell all around the restuarant, it would have caught your attention!

It's not a Mexican restaurant, that's probably why I didn't put it together! And although I love Mexican food, I'm far from an authentic Mexican restaurant, unfortunately!

That doesn't mean I don't make *THE* best chicken fajitas on the planet, however.

LOL...nope, Jeekinz....nearest one is about 2.5 hours away!

See? THAT is why I creatively cook so much....my options for decent food are miniscule!

And...to my horror....same distance to get Greek. Now THAT is a tragedy.

Well NOW your chicken fajitas will be better because you can serve them sizzling hot in their very own fajita skillet!

Jeekinz - and I'm sure she wasn't connecting the phrase "great food" to Chili's

These are cool too. Make sure you have a trivet though.
