This Chicken Lazone is my new favorite recipe! I will be putting this in my rotation, like once a week.

Not only does it taste delicious, but it is low in points too. That means I didn’t have to feel guilty about serving it over some pasta.

If you want to keep it really low in points you can skip the pasta. It tastes delicious on its own too.

Typically Chicken Lazone is made with heavy whipping cream and a fair amount of butter. To lighten it up I used fat-free half and half and only used 1 tablespoon of butter.

Replacing the heavy whipping cream with fat-free half and half saved 17 points! Although the half and half is quite thin I used cornstarch to thicken it up. It’s only 1 point for a tablespoon of cornstarch.

Some recipes call for 4 tablespoons of butter and that would be 20 points. Instead, I used 1 tablespoon of butter for only 5 points.

Making two simple changes to this recipe saved 31 points! So instead of the Chicken Lazone being 10 Freestyle points per serving it is only 3 Freestyle points.

Let me tell you, the spices in this recipe are the star of the show in my eyes. Not the butter or the cream.

The spices are a combination of salt, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. These spices taste so good together!

You season the chicken with the spice mixture, then cook it in the butter. Once the chicken is cooked you remove it from the pan to make the sauce.

I added the fat-free half and half to the same pan and scraped up any brown bits left from cooking the chicken. The seasoning adds so much flavor to the sauce. It really is out of this world.

I used one pound of boneless chicken tenderloins which was 6 pieces. The recipe is 3 Freestyle points per serving – 2 chicken tenderloins per serving. I served mine with 1/2 cup angel hair pasta for 3 Freestyle points. All together my dinner was 6 Freestyle points.

I sooooo appreciate the pic you showed. So often the pics are so obviously not accurate with results actually achieved I.e. recipe that calls for 2 TB of breadcrumbs on 2 chicken breasts on camera look like the cook used 1/2 C on each one. Soooo, thank you for an honest depiction. The recipe and pic look fantastic. Blessings
