Another fun day with the grandchildren. My granddaughter turns 6 in a few days. Today she asked me to pull out her loose tooth. It was so small I couldn’t get a good grip on it. I wrapped dental floss around the base of the tooth and pulled it right out onto her lap with no pain! Although she was very happy to get the tooth out, I didn’t warn her when I yanked and it surprised her. She was mad for a minute, but my best buddy the rest of the day! I let her pick what we would have to eat for supper. She picked chicken, mashed potatoes and corn….again. That was OK because I wanted to try this new chicken recipe. I am not a fan of white chicken meat. My favorite is the legs and thighs. It is not very often I try a recipe that is made from only chicken breasts that is extremely easy, tasty and not dry! I made this because I had never heard of Chicken Lazone before and the recipe had my curiosity up. To all you chicken lovers out there, you have got to try this one. I was afraid it would be too spicy for the grandchildren but it was not spicy at all, just very flavorful. There was not a speck of chicken left on anyone’s plate. This is a recipe I will definitely be making again!
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (pounded so all the chicken is the same thickness but not too thin)
1 tsp salt
1-1/2 tsp chili powder
1-1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup heavy cream
Combine seasonings and sprinkle over both sides of the chicken breasts. In a large frying pan, melt half of the butter. Cook chicken over medium heat turning over once until no longer pink but do not over cook. Pour cream over the chicken and lower the heat to medium low. Simmer until the cream has thickened a little. Add remaining butter. Cook one minute more, then place chicken on the plate and drizzle the sauce from the pan over the chicken breasts.
