What makes this Chicken Lazone truly special?
Our Chicken Lazone is not just another chicken dish; it’s a game changer. With its preparation time of 20 minutes, it becomes the ideal solution for those busy nights when time is limited but appetites are hearty. Its versatility shines through as it can be equally enjoyed served on top of pasta or, alongside velvety mashed potatoes.

What You Need To Make This Chicken Lazone Recipe?
Chicken tenders: These are the hero of our dish! Opt for fresh tenders to achieve the most tender and juicy result. If unavailable, chicken breasts sliced into strips are a suitable alternative.
Spices (salt, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper): This flavorful medley is what gives our Chicken Lazone its distinctive taste. Adjust the cayenne pepper if you prefer a milder or spicier version.
Butter: Using unsalted butter allows you to control the saltiness of the dish. If you only have salted butter on hand, you might want to dial back on the added salt.
Heavy cream: The cornerstone of our luscious sauce. It provides a rich and creamy consistency that’s hard to resist. For those watching their calorie intake, half-and-half can be considered, though the final sauce might be a tad less creamy.
Steps To Make Chicken Lazone:
Step 1: Let’s get that flavorful journey started! First, in a bowl, mix together the salt, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, and kicky cayenne pepper. Give your chicken tenders a generous sprinkle on both sides with this spicy mix. Now, in a spacious sauté pan, melt down half that butter on medium-high flame. Here comes the sizzle! Lay down those chicken tenders and cook them until they’re beautifully golden and cooked through roughly 8 minutes.
Step 2: Now, for that dreamy sauce. Pour in the heavy cream along with the remaining butter into the pan. Turn down the heat a notch and let it simmer. Watch as it transforms into a thick, velvety sauce in about 5-7 minutes. Serve it up! Whether over some al dente pasta or creamy mashed potatoes, this Chicken Lazone promises a plate of comfort.
To enhance the taste further you may want to think about soaking the chicken tenders in the blend of spices for at least an hour or even overnight in the refrigerator. This way the flavors can fully seep into the chicken resulting in every bite being packed with a combination of chili, garlic, onion and cayenne. Besides marinated chicken tends to be more succulent and tender when it’s cooked!
Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I use other cuts of chicken for this recipe?
