Lighter Chicken Lazone and Linguine - Such simple ingredients everyone has on hand adds up to such great flavor. No one has to know how simple and quick it is.

I wanted to try this recipe for Chicken Lazone from the moment I first saw it on Plain Chicken. Because I never heard of this dish, I decided it was time to do some reading. After a little research I learned many things about this recipe. It comes from “Brennan’s“, a restaurant located in New Orleans. They are known for their lavish breakfast and for the creation of Bananas Foster. The Chicken Lazone was created by Lazone Randolph, Executive Chef of Brennan’s for 40 years. He has worked under two great chefs, Paul Blange, who created Bananas Foster among many other dishes and Mike Roussel.

Always wanting to try new things in the kitchen, and make meals that are a bit better for my family, I thought I’d try to cut out some of the fat and calories; by using Fat Free Half n Half instead of heavy cream, it worked just fine. The sauce may not thicken as much as using heavy cream, but you still get all of the flavor. Some of us have to watch our cholesterol. I still used real butter, so you still get a hearty dish with the butter cream sauce flavors. It’s just little changes that help in the long run. You could go even healthier and use olive oil instead of butter, I just might try that next time.

Such simple ingredients everyone has on hand adds up to such great flavor. No one has to know how simple and quick it is.

Lighter Chicken Lazone and Linguine

Ingredients

  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon Chili Powder
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 2 Teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper (or black pepper)
  • 2 Large Skinless Boneless Chicken Breasts (or 4 small)
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 cups Fat Free Half n Half

Instructions

  1. Begin cooking pasta according to package instructions. Remember to give a good stir every few minutes so it doesn't stick. While pasta cooks,.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the salt, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder and pepper. Coat the chicken breast with the seasoning mixture.
  3. Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large saute pan, then cook the chicken breasts over medium heat about 7 to 8 minutes, turning them once - cook until well browned on both sides (could be longer if they're thick - I use a thermometer it's done 165 degrees)
  4. Pour the half n half into the pan and lower the heat. Simmer for several minutes, stirring, until the sauce thickens, then fold in the remaining 2 tablespoons butter. When the butter is melted, transfer the chicken breast to plates over pasta and top with the sauce.
