This Chicken Lazone recipe is fast, easy to make, and you’ll love the tender pan-fried chicken that’s drenched in a flavorful Cajun cream sauce!
Prep Time 10 minutes | Cook Time 20 minutes | Total Time 30 minutes
- 2 large chicken breasts cut in half lengthwise
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Flour for dredging
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 cup heavy/whipping cream
- 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 dash Italian seasoning
- Fresh parsley chopped, to taste (optional)
- Prep your chicken (cut it in half lengthwise so you have 4 thinner cutlets). Sprinkle both sides of each piece of chicken with the garlic powder and salt & pepper. Coat each piece in flour.
- Add the butter and oil to a skillet over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, cook the chicken for 4-5 minutes/side until it’s nice and golden. Take the chicken out of the pan and set it aside.
- Stir in the cream and scrape up the brown bits from the bottom of the pan so they’re incorporated into the sauce.
- Add the remaining spices and whisk them in until you’ve got a smooth sauce.
- Add the chicken back into the pan and cook it for 5 minutes or so until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened up a bit. Season with more salt & pepper if necessary (I do find the sauce needs a little more salt). Serve with parsley sprinkled over top if desired.
- If using small chicken breasts, just keep them intact (you may need to cook them a little longer, though). I like cutting the larger ones so they cook quickly and evenly so they don’t dry out.
- This recipe does have a bit of a kick to it. If spice isn’t your thing, use less cayenne.
