Chicken Lazone

I was super impressed with this recipe. I cooked the chicken on a rack over a pan because I hate how chicken gets soggy. The spice combination was really good. The cream sauce didn’t thicken like I was hoping – maybe needed to keep it boiling longer – over all though this recipe is definitely a keeper! To make it low carb I skipped the noodles – I didn’t even miss them.  I even poured the left over sauce over some steamed broccoli – yum!

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 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

Directions:

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Combine salt, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper in a bowl with the olive oil.  Put the chicken tenders in the bowl and cover them with the spice mixture.

In large sauce pan, melt half of the butter over medium-high heat.  

Place a backing rack over a deep sided pan, then bake the chicken in the oven for about 25 – 30 minutes.

Pour the cream and remaining butter into the sauce pan.  Lower heat and simmer until the sauce thickens, about 5-7 minutes. (Mine was more like 25 minutes)

Serve chicken over cooked spaghetti squash or with a side of your favorite veggies!
