(Cook) – Chicken Florentine and Farfalle (Tell) – Anolon Advanced Bronze 5.25qt Sauteuse

I am just tickled to death to be one of the featured bloggers in Anolon’s Cook & Tell campaign.  Anolon has beautiful pieces of cookware with styles to suit everyone.  Seriously, they are gorgeous pieces.  Today, I’m sharing my review of the Anolon Advanced Bronze 5.25qt (11″) Sauteuse from the Advanced Bronze collection, and cooking up some Chicken Florentine and Farfalle for y’all!

Let’s just git to it, reckon?  About the pan -

The very first thing I noticed about the pan was it’s beauty and size.   The bronze collection is so, so pretty! I picked it because I felt it went with the rest of our rustic decor in our home, and I was right.   The 5.25qt and 11″ size of this pan is absolutely perfect.  It’s not so huge that you end up cooking too much, but instead, will feed a family 5 with a nice serving size for everybody.   It’s deep so that you’re spilling food out and it has a slightly domed, clear lid so you can see how things are cooking up.  I believe it’s break resistant as well.  Each handle has the silicone grips.  This makes it easy to hold so it doesn’t slip and so it doesn’t get too hot for you hands.  I won’t buy a pan without it.   What I noticed when cooking, was how evenly things cooked up.  I have had pans where, no matter where it’s at in the pan, only half will be done and you’re constantly flipping and using strategy as to how to turn and place it so that the rest gets done.  Not the case with this.  I didn’t move it all over the burner and I didn’t constantly flip and turn things. It just cooked right.

I’ve had the opportunity to try other pieces of this collection (which I’ll share later) but it gets 5 stars and two thumbs up from me and my husband.   You can’t go wrong with it. It’s high quality, durable, cooks well, and is just stunning to look at.  It will make you feel like a gourmet cook. for reals y’all.

Okie dokie, how ’bout we move on to the recipe?! This recipe is the ‘from scratch’ version of the Bertolli frozen meals.  We like to use their sauces for home cooked meals and save their frozen meals for days we’re on the run!

    I would love to win this pan. Just recently received a set of two Anolon Advanced Bronze skillets as a gift from my husband, and they’re awesome. It would be nice to have three pieces. Since one of my husband’s favorite dishes is anything with Alfredo Sauce, I would probably make your recipe first. I can imagine making Chicken Tortilla Soup and other soups in this pan, too.

    I also like the 4.5 Quart Tapered Stockpot since I prefer pans with two handles. They look nice enough to set on the table as a serving dish plus serving in the pan keeps the food warm.

    I would make picadillo (Cuban ground beef dish that’s tomato based with green olives) in the pan because it’s the perfect size. I like to saute a trinity mix (onions, green peppers and celery) first so there’s lots of veggies in it.

    I don’t know what it’s called, but there’s this meal we really love… throw a couple of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, some black beans, corn, cream cheese, salsa, and peppers in the slow cooker and cook for about 8 hours. When it’s done, you shred the chicken and dish up big bowls of yummy! :)
