Chicken Lazone

My kids devoured this dish!!!  It wasn't very spicy at all.  I would probably add a bit more cayenne pepper if you want some heat.  I did my own spin on this dish.  I found the recipe online and I just wanted to change it up a bit to suit my family's taste buds.  Hope you enjoy!
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper or more if you like the heat
  • 4 whole boneless skinless chicken breasts or 2lbs chicken tenders (You can also use chicken thighs)
  • 1/4 cup butter, divided
  • 1-1/2 cups heavy cream
  • cooked noodles


  1. Combine the seasonings and coat chicken breasts.
  2. In large saute pan melt half of the butter and cook chicken over medium heat for about 7 to 8 minutes, turning once.
  3. Pour the cream into the skillet and lower the heat.
  4. Simmer for several minutes, stirring until the sauce thickens then add the remaining butter.
  5. Shred/Cut chicken and add back to sauce
