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!
