Chicken Lazone

I love this dish because I always have the ingredients on hand.  If we were extra greedy during the week and need a quick meal before the new weekly menu kicks in, this is one of those meals that tides us over.  It’s tasty too!  Thanks, Plain Chicken, for the idea!

Chicken Lazone

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2-21/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into strips
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic (optional)
  • 1/4 cup butter divided
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • whole wheat noodles or brown riceChicken Lazone

Combine salt, pepper, chili powder, garlic powder & cayenne pepper.  Sprinkle over both sides of chicken thighs.  In a large frying pan, cook chicken & minced garlic in half of the butter until done.  Remove and keep warm.
