Chicken Lazone cream sauce in a skillet with a whisk.


In just a few words, there are zero fancy things going on here. It’s just seasoned chicken breast tenders cooked in butter, and topped with a simple cream sauce. Plus zoodles – you can get those precut at Whole Foods, Target, Walmart, etc…

  1. Season chicken tenders with my favorites; salt, pepper, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, and Italian Seasoning. 
  2. Melt some butter in a large skillet and add chicken tenders.
  3. Cook chicken for about 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through and browned; remove from skillet and set aside.
  4. Add zucchini noodles to the skillet and cook for 2 minutes, or until just tender. Remove from skillet and set aside.
  5. Melt remaining butter in the skillet and add garlic.
  6. Whisk in heavy cream and, while whisking, scrape up the browned bits from the bottom of the skillet.
  7. Simmer and stir often until sauce is reduced and thickened – about 3 minutes. Taste for salt and pepper and adjust accordingly.
  8. Return chicken and zucchini to skillet; cook for 1 minute just to heat through.
  9. Garnish with parsley and serve.

    Made this for dinner last evening. It was absolutely delicious!! I thought the seasonings would be too heavy, but I stuck it out and was not sorry! Such good flavor carried through to the cream sauce. I added 1 Tablespoon cream cheese to the sauce to help thicken it and sprinkled fresh grated parmesan cheese over the finished plate. I use a Spiralizer to make my own zoodles, and the freshness really pays off.

    I find myself wanting to add fresh mushrooms. It’s actually something I think my picky husband would like.
