This chicken Lazone recipe gives you a quick 30-minute dinner with pan-seared chicken tenders smothered in delicious buttery cream sauce.


  • 2 lb. chicken tenders, unbreaded
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Parsley, to garnish (optional)


  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Combine the spice mix of garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, salt and pepper and generously season both sides of the chicken tenders with it.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add olive oil and melt 2 tablespoons of butter. Sear the chicken tenders on both sides until browned, about 3-4 minutes per side. You will need to do this in batches. Remove chicken to a plate.
  3. Reduce heat to medium, pour in heavy cream and add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Scrape off any browned bits stuck to the bottom of the pan.
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste and simmer until the sauce has thickened and reduced, about 5-8 minutes.
  5. Return chicken and plate juices to skillet and simmer for another 2 minutes or until chicken is warmed through.
  6. Dish and serve hot over pasta, mashed potatoes, or rice topped with chopped fresh parsley (optional).
  7. Enjoy!


  • Spice it up – Add some spice with a little cayenne.
  • Make it smoky – A dash or two of smoked paprika will really add some smoky undertones.
  • Add more flavor – Crumbled bacon will go great with the cream sauce.
  • Add some veggies – You can try some fresh sliced mushrooms or spinach to bulk up the dish a little. You might need to add more cream sauce to account for the added volume.
