My mother-in-law got me a Calphalon 3-Qt Sauté Pan for Christmas and I tested it out tonight. I've ALWAYS wanted a pan that could go straight from stove-top to oven cuz I've seen so many good recipes that require it. Now I've finally got one and I made some REALLY yummy Baked Chicken with Mushrooms tonight. Greg said that the chicken tasted like it had been slow-cooked for hours and I totally agree. The meat was so tender it literally fell off the bone as soon as my fork touched it. The thyme and mushroom sauce was also just perfect and I made sure there was rice to soak it all up! I can't wait to try some more dishes in this pan. Thanks mom!
