Best uses: Searing, braising, sauces, frying meats, sautéing vegetables, browning, and oven roasting. Use this pan for meals that are sauce-based or have greater capacity to spatter. Its straight sides provide a greater diameter flat cooking surface than a 12” skillet, and it will transition flawlessly from stovetop to oven, keeping meats moist and flavorful.

Chili-Lime Chicken
1 cup lime juice
2/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup honey
2 tablespoons grated lime peel
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 broiler/fryer chicken, cut up
¼ cup coconut oil

In a bowl, combine the lime juice, oil, honey, lime peel, chili powder, garlic, salt and pepper. Place chicken pieces in a large resealable plastic bag; pour lime juice mixture over. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight. In the American Kitchen® 12-inch Sauté Pan, melt coconut oil; and add the chicken. Discard marinade. Cook until chicken is browned, about 10 minutes. Place in a preheated 350⁰ oven. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until juices run clear. Yield: 4 servings.

Tips for Chili-Lime Chicken
• All poultry should be cooked to 165⁰ according to the USDA.
• Coconut oil can easily be substituted for olive oil. Because coconut oil has a high saturated fat content, you can use it to cook at high temperatures and leave it at room temperature for months without it going rancid.
• Mix up this easy recipe and put in the freezer. It is a quick to prepare meal. Take it out of the freezer, refrigerate 2 days to thaw; and cook according to recipe directions.

Health Benefits: Coconut oil has been shown to support immune systems and thyroid health, helping digestion, and even aiding in weight loss.

5 reviews for 12-inch Premium Stainless Steel Sauté Pan

  1. 5 out of 5


    There’s no job too big or small for this saute pan. It’s so versatile! Yes, it sautes foods evenly, but I also use it to make stews and soups or put it in the oven when I’m baking an egg dish. The 12-inch pan is big enough to cook family-size meals easily and without worrying about spilling and messes. I could do all my cooking with just this pan if I had to, but I’m thankful to have several other pieces of American Kitchen cookware in my pot rack, too.

    This is a large pan that is perfect for family sized meals. Don’t be afraid of foods sticking. If you heat the pan before using, I’ve not had trouble cooking anything so far and I don’t have to worry about any coatings coming off or using metal utensils. I love the quality of the stainless steel. Cheaper quality stainless steel pans do have issues but this one does not. It is obvious it is a superior pan from the first time you use it.

    I LOVE these pans! I have never cooked an egg in a stainless steel pan and not have it stick…no matter how much oil you put in the pan. I love how quick they heat up, how evenly they cook and clean up is a breeze. I have never been happier with a set of pans. And I feel amazing to be supporting an American company.

    This pan is just what I was looking for. Follow the instructions carefully for easy browning and cleanup. The tall sides prevent spattering quite well. Haven’t tried in the oven yet, but confident that will go well, too. Glad to have American products that I feel I can trust.
