Missing that theme park magic while you're stuck at home? You've got to cook, so why not cook a favorite theme park meal? Today, the folks at Silver Dollar City have sent us one of their guests' all-time skillet favorites — Succotash!
Now, the park did not send us a six-foot cast iron skillet to cook with, but they did take the time to scale down the recipe for a family dinner that you can cook at home. Follow along, and let's start cooking!
Ingredients Serves four
1 16-ounce package Frozen Breaded Okra
1 cup Whole Kernel Corn (Fresh or Frozen)
1 cup Sliced Yellow Squash
1/2 cup White Onion, julienne sliced
1 cup Green Bell Pepper, julienne sliced
1/2 pound Chicken Breast, cut fajita style
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Pepper
1/4 cup Olive oil
In a large Skillet sauté Onions and peppers in 1 tsp pf olive oil.
Remove from skillet and add corn and squash vegetables, cooking until soft. Remove from skillet into a separate bowl.
Then add 1 tsp of oil and chicken. Cook on medium until browned and cooked through. Remove from Skillet and reserve until later.
Add remaining oil to pan with the okra. Fry until golden brown then add the salt, pepper and garlic.
When okra is done add back the Vegetables and chicken heating everything through.
Blame me for being a California boy with limited experience cooking okra, but I let the okra sit out too long while we were filming the intro, so the batter started to melt off by the time it hit the pan. So I might suggest frying the okra first in hot oil if you really want to ensure that you keep the breading on. For me, even though a lot of it slid off, it still fried up nicely in the pan and the whole thing tasted delicious.
In fact, this has been my favorite meal that I've cooked on the Social Distancing Kitchen show so far. So thanks again to Silver Dollar City for sharing this recipe with us... and stayed tuned for another Outdoor Kitchen Skillet meal coming up on the show next week.
