Family Friendly Low-Carb pt. 1


Last night was one of THOSE nights.  The Boy had bass lessons directly after school.  The Wife had errands to run including picking up our little foster kitten from the vet. Between those two things, there was no way we were going to sit down to eat until after 7:00 p.m.
When we’re short on time, our family has a few tried and true recipes that we stick to that are quick, low-carb, and delicious!
One of our favorites is Chicken Lazone. I found the recipe on quite awhile ago. The description there says that this recipe is based on the Chicken Lazone at Brennan’s Restaurant in New Orleans.  I have to say, it’s delicious enough to be served in a restaurant.

Brennan’s Chicken Lazone

1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder
4 whole boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup butter, divided
1/2 cup heavy cream


:Combine the seasonings and coat chicken breasts.

In large sauté pan melt half of the butter and cook chicken over medium heat for about 7 to 8 minutes, turning once.

Pour the cream into the skillet and lower the heat.

Simmer for several minutes, stirring until the sauce thickens then add the remaining butter.

When butter is melted place chicken breasts on four plates and top with the sauce.


  1. I totally want to try this. Dead simple. OOF on the heavy cream. Dairy doesn't agree with either of us, but I'm willing to make that sacrifice.

  2. I love easy recipes! I'm going to replace the heavy cream with something else and try this. Anything with chili powder is right up my alley.
