Chicken Lazone
Prep time

Total time
Serves: 4-6
  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 4 tbs butter (divided)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Spice Mix:
  • 3 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp white pepper (don't substitute--it's essential for the flavor)
  1. Mix all the spice ingredients together--remove and reserve 1 tsp for the sauce.
  2. Place chicken in a large bowl and sprinkle the spice mixture over the chicken. Mix the chicken and spice mix with your hands so each piece is well coated.
  3. Melt 2 tbs butter in a large skillet over medium heat until it sizzles (don't let it brown)
  4. Add half of the chicken and brown well on each side. Remove from pan and melt the remaining butter and brown the remaining half of the chicken.
  5. Add all the chicken back to the skillet, cover and reduce heat to low and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until juices run clear from the chicken.
  6. Remove the chicken from the pan (cover and keep it warm) and raise heat to medium. Reduce the liquid by 25%--this should take 3-5 minutes once it begins to boil.
  7. Slowly stir in the cream. Add the reserved 1 tsp of spice mix to the sauce.
  8. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thickened and coats the back of a spoon--about 10-15 minutes
  9. Add the chicken back to the pan and heat through.
