    The seasoning of the cast iron, natural juices from the chicken and lemon should be enough to provide lots of flavor to all of the ingredients.

    I recently moved into a new home where having a gas range was not an option. I was highly disappointed, but hey, what can you do? Can’t have it all, right? It did not even occur to me that I might not be able to use my beloved cast-iron pans on a glass, electric cooktop!

    After doing some research I determined you can, but carefully. Like anything on a glass cook-top, you want to be overly carefully to not drop anything on it. Also avoid moving around the dish to prevent scratching.

    If you are still nervous about using your cast iron on a glass cook-top, you can always purchase an individual, counter gas burner for use with your cast iron and wok.
