“Brennan’s” in New Orleans published their popular recipe for Chicken Lazone and it has definitely been a hit in our house. I wanted more sauce to serve over pasta so I upped the amount of spices to our taste and added more cream. This tasty dish comes together quickly. People are always surprised at how easy it is when I share the recipe with them.

- In a large saute pan, melt half of the butter over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken until done, about 8 minutes.
