Chicken Lazone


This dish is SO delicious.  I've had this recipe bookmarked for years, but I never got around to making it.  I am kicking myself for not trying this sooner.  It is SOOOOO GOOD!  The best part of this dish is that it is incredibly simple to make.  It requires not marinating or prep. Just sprinkle the seasoning on the chicken, cook and add cream. It takes about 15 minutes total.  You can't beat that! I like to serve this over angel hair pasta, but it would also be good with mashed potatoes.  Next time we are going to try a combination of half chicken and half andouille sausage. I can't wait!

(Printable Recipe)


  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 lb chicken tenders
  • 1/4 cup butter, divided
  • 2 cups heavy cream

Combine salt, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper.  Sprinkle over both sides of chicken tenders.

In large saute pan, melt half of the butter over medium-high heat.  Cook the chicken tenders until done, about 8 minutes.

Pour the cream and remaining butter into the skillet.  Lower heat and simmer until the sauce thickens, about 5-7 minutes.  Serve chicken and sauce over pasta or mashed potatoes, if desired.

  1. Looks delish! How is the heat factor? Think kiddos could handle it?

    1. In my opinion it wasnt that spicy. All my kids loved it and they range in age from 5 to 11 yrs old. Hope that helps!

  2. What kind of chile powder? There is an infinite variety of them - type of chile, heat, etc. (Some even say chile powder when meaning hot pepper, i.e. cayenne). Thanks!

    1. We used ancho chile and it was a home run. Wasn't as much heat as I had expected. We'll use a little more cayennne on the next try. Awesome and simple little recipe!

  3. Angela - I didn't think it was hot, but you can leave out the cayenne if you think it might be too hot. Enjoy!

  4. Sandy - I just regular chili powder - that is what it says on the jar. Enjoy!

  8. I think I am seeing specks of green in this dish but can't find anything with green in any of the seasonings listed. Am I wrong ? Did you use garlic with parsley powder ? Looks delish, though, but before I try this out, I'd like the answer ?? Thanks.

  9. I meant garlic powder with parsley !

  10. Denise - I just sprinkled a little parsley on the chicken before I took the pictures. Hope you enjoy it!

  11. Ah ha ! I knew I saw 'green' ! It's going on the menu for this weekend. I'm already getting hungry!

    Thanks for the quick response.

  12. do you have to use all cream or could you use half and half or a combination of the two?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Judy - the sauce won't thicken as much if you use half-and-half. You can add a little flour to help it thicken up or just have a thinner sauce. Either way it will be delicious! Enjoy!

  14. Looks fabulous and easy to make, will be a winner with my family.

    One question, how can I print recipes from my recipe box?

    TYVM.

  15. Sounds wonderful but am faced with the same ol' dilemma...
    needing an alternative for the cream.
    Fat free half and half separates when it gets hot. What else is lower in fat and cholesterol?

    1. I was going to ask the same question. Found this doing a Google search. http://www.newhealthguide.org/Heavy-Cream-Substitute.html

    2. Also a cauliflower puree Alfredo sauce is amazing with this dish, have a couple of diabetics in the family. So I substitute all the time.

  16. Mountain Meme - you can use evaporated milk in place of the heavy cream. Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I made this last night and used evaporated milk in place of the cream and it didn't thicken like it should have. It was good but it looked nothing like the picture and I think we really missed out on the creaminess.

  19. We made this with boneless/skinless chicken thighs and it was spectacular. (:

    1. Yay!. I had thawed out some thighs and was wondering if it would be as good.

  20. This looks so good. I'm trying to stay away from things like cream and butter, but I might have to make an exception with this one!

    ReplyDelete
  21. so do i leave the chicken in the pan when it's done and add the cream/butter, or do you take it out before that step?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Zandi - I left them in, but you can take them out and put them back in once the sauce has thickened.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Didn't get enough cream from store gonna try evampoated milk(powder) might help with thickening, also added fresh cherry tomatoes from garden and some fresh mushrooms, sauce tastes great can wait till it's done

  26. chili powder .... cream ..... I'm kicking you for not trying this one sooner. :) Pinned.

  27. Wow! Just made this tonight for dinner. So simple to make and really delicious. Very flavorful sauce. I love how there was a hint of spicy "heat" in the background. Not overpowering at all. Yummy!

  28. Just made, still eating! Loved it and so did the family!!!

  29. Made this tonight used light cream and added a bag of fresh spinach. Yum! Turned out great and served over the angel hair.

  30. I've made this three times now. So good. Thank you.

  31. Made this! Super yummy!!! I made it the regular way (by the recipe)..tried it first..was very good :) Then, I noticed the bottle of Moscato in my fridge, so I added a little of that and squeezed in a fresh lemon. Yummy to my tummy!!!
    **Just a note: I served this over garlic mashed potatoes and it really took away from the sauce. The sauce is so yummy by itself, I could just eat it with a spoon. I would recommend serving with just roasted potatoes on the side or over pasta.

  32. Doing Lo Carb and making this tonight but over Zucchini "noodles" that I made with my new spiral slicer. Adding some mushrooms too- looks delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Made it last night, Steph, it was wonderful! I loved the seasoning- very subtle and not spicy at all. I served it with zucchini noodles, added mushrooms and half the amount of cream. Thank you, this is a make again- Oh I put the chicken under the broiler a bit while I made the sauce.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Steph, did you ever make it with the andouille sausage? I will be making this in the upcoming week! Your recipes are so yummy!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. This dish is too bland, lacks seasoning on chicken and sauce too. It was just ok. Ill be doing this again but putting my own twist to it.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Made this a couple of nights ago. My kids and hubby loved it! Will definitely be making this in a regular basis! I added sliced red bell peppers added extra color and delicious taste!! Thanks for sharing!

  37. I used the heavy cream but it wouldn't thicken?

  38. ErMahGerd! This was fabulous! Loved it! Hope you don't mind if I share this on my blog and give you props. Yummm! This one is a keeper.

  39. This sounds great! I'll have to try this soon. Do you mind if I link to your blog when I blog about it?

  40. Followed the directions exactly and it was absolutely awesome.. All of us loved it, and ours did have heat. Our spices cooked on the chicken like a blackened crust, and when I added the cream and butter and kept simmering the chicken it made an amazing spicy cream sauce. Second time I used chipotle chili powder which added great smoke flavor, and a cup of frozen peas at the end. Even better!

  41. Could this be served over spaghetti squash to lower the carbs as I am diabetic?

    ReplyDelete
  42. This sounds amazing!!! I can't wait to try it... But it sounds like it may need some sort of CHEESE?!?!?! What do you recommend?

    ReplyDelete
  43. I made this tonight and it was great. Not too spicy but you get a hint of heat. I served mine over egg noodles but definitely want to try mashed potatoes next time with the delicious gravy/sauce. I did 1/2 the recipe since there are only two of us and it was perfect! Thanks for sharing, glad I found you through Pinterest.

    ReplyDelete
  44. OMG, we made this tonight, and it's now our new favourite recipe. We don't like spicy very much but I still wanted the flavour, so I reduced the chili powder to 1/2 tsp and left out the cayenne. I served it over brown rice. It was delicious. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Just tried this. My husband and I loved it! Absolutely delicious. I put mine over some homemade mashed potatoes and I didn't have enough cream so I added some corn starch. 5 stars!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love this recipe as is, but modified it into what is now a standing favorite. Instead of cream, I used jarred alfredo sauce and about 1/4 cup of vermouth. The mix of spices is amazing in that extra creamy sauce. Thank you for sharing this excellent dish!

  47. Made this last night it was yummy! I topped the dish with some chopped green onions . Perfecto! Thanks.

  49. This was delicious! I was out of garlic powder, so I just sautéed one clove of minced garlic in the melted butter after cooking the chicken and before adding the cream. I served it with quinoa. Everyone loved it. Will definitely make again, maybe with some sliced mushrooms added in.

  50. I loved this dish. I actually used bow tie pasta and mushrooms and thought they fit the dish perfectly

  51. Just made this with thighs and the family loved it...thanks! I think I'll add peas next time too....

  52. I have made this a few times, always over pasta, just enough sauce to coat, and not drown the pasta. I don't use the hot pepper, I use smoked paprika instead.

  56. Can this be frozen and used later? I was thinking of making a skillet full of this, but with just the two of us it will be too much. I like freezing half of normal recipes but am unsure if this will work because of the cream.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Made this with evaporated milk and a little corn starch. This is very good and quick and easy. It's a keeper.

  58. What makes it thicken with out flowering the chicken?

  59. Made this for lunch today! So easy and delicious! Kids loved it. I added just a pinch of chicken bouillon to the sauce. Wow! Cant wait to make it again & try adding some veggies. Thanks for a great recipe.

  60. I made this this evening and the sauce didn't thicken. Any ideas?

    1. Make sure to cook it at a high heat - if you almost boil it, it will thicken

  61. Hello, when cooking the chicken, do you cover it or give each each side 4 minutes? I wasn't sure so I turned it. Thanks! So excited to eat dinner :)

  65. I didn't have any of the heavy cream but I have sour cream. Hope it tastes as good.

    ReplyDelete
  66. YUM! I made this tonight and we loved it! I only had 10 chicken tenders but didn't think it was 2 pounds worth so I adjusted the seasonings a little and only used 1 cup heavy cream. Mmm, especially over mashed potatoes! Will definitely be making again. May even try making it with shrimp next time.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I love this and make it alot. Used shrimp instead of chicken a couple of weeks ago. YUM

    ReplyDelete
  68. I use evaporated milk instead of the cream ig its too thin I dissolve 1T of corn starch with 1T water, and that thickens it up fine. I used Italian Sausage instead of chicken the other night, that's the only way my fam wants it now.

  70. I didn't have heavy cream (I usually don't have it on hand and don't need it). I used skim milk. After the chicken was browned on both sides, I removed it from the pan, added 1T butter, 2T flour, stirred until smooth then added 2 cups of skim milk. Simmered until thickened, then added the chicken back to the pan. I also seasoned the sauce with a little salt and pepper.

  75. Do you cook the chicken in with the sauce or separate?

    ReplyDelete
  76. Are you in America? Because chili powder is all about the same here. It's not a certain chile powder, but a blend to season chili.

  81. Hi everyone, please cook this sauce at HIGH HEAT so it will thicken. Since you aren't using a roux, that's how it will thicken. I'm just trying to save everyone the frustration of combing through the comments when your sauce hasn't thickened whatsoever over lowered/medium heat (as it says in the instructions) after ten minutes. Either that, or just make a roux as you would with an alfredo. The seasoning will still be there.

    ReplyDelete
  82. ok when they say "Heavy Cream" do they mean like sour cream?

    ReplyDelete
  83. Made a veggie version of this today for just myself and it was fabulous! I added a swirl of honey as the sauce was finishing, reminds me of the honey Chipotle chicken pasta at Cheesecake Factory!

    ReplyDelete
  84. I make this frequently using jarred alfredo sauce instead of heavy cream, and reducing about 1/3 cup of dry white wine in the pan with the butter by about half before adding the alfredo. It's delicious! I have to serve it over noodles with bread on the side to mop up any leftover sauce.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I made this, it was easy and totally delicious...thickened right up and we had it over mashed. Yum. Posted it on FB, and several friends have made it and posted raves. Thanks so much!
