This is a New Orleans recipe so you know it’s packing some serious flavor, too.
Let me show you how to do this!
How to make Chicken Lazone:
First up, we’re going to season our chicken breasts (or thighs, if you prefer) with a bunch of spices.
The spice mix includes chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, and salt.
You should use about half of the spice mix for the chicken and then save the remainder for seasoning the sauce.
Once your chicken is seasoned with the spices, melt some butter in a large heavy-bottomed skillet. I use my cast iron skillet for this.
Add the chicken to the skillet and cook on both sides until it’s cooked through.
Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.
Add some heavy cream, butter, and the remaining spice mix to the skillet and whisk to combine.
Let the sauce come to a boil and thicken up a bit and then add your chicken back in.
Spoon some sauce over your chicken and get ready to dig in!
We like this chicken Lazone over zucchini noodles, but it’s also good on it’s own. However you serve it, I think your whole family is going to devour this one! It’s so flavorful!
