Another week – another way with chicken for dinner.
And – OH what a way this is!
Have you ever heard of Chicken Lazone?
I believe it is a fancy word for “lazy,” but doesn’t it sound so classy and special?
And that is how this chicken dish tasted! Rich and creamy and spicy and classy and special!
Yes – it is another Five Star, Two Thumbs Up, Winner Winner of a Chicken Dinner!
Give it a try! You are going to love this one!
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
- 2 tsp. smokey paprika
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1/2 tsp crushed chipotle pepper
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp coarse black pepper
- 1/4 fresh basil, chopped finely
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 4 Tbsp butter
- 1 lb pasta or noodles (I used Winternacht Spaetzle Swabian Egg Noodles I found at our local Aldi Market)
- 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 cups Half and Half
- Fresh parsley, chopped
In a large Ziploc bag, combine chicken with seasonings (paprika, garlic, onion, chili powder, chipotle, oregano, salt, pepper, basil) and oil. Allow to marinade for several hours.
When ready to serve, prepare noodles or pasta according to package directions.
While noodles are cooking, prepare chicken and sauce.
In a large skillet, melt 2 Tbsp butter. Add chicken breasts, and cook 4-5 minutes on each side. Remove chicken from pan and set aside. Add remaining 2 Tbsp butter to skillet. Allow to melt. Add garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes. Stir in Half and Half, and cook for 4-5 minutes until slightly thickened. Stir in cooked noodles/pasta, and toss gently to combine. Add chicken. Garnish with parsley. Serve immediately.
