What is New Orleans Chicken Lazone
This recipe comes from the restaurant “Brennan’s” located in New Orleans. This is a recipe that was created by the executive chef of Brennan’s, Lazone Randolph.
The chef is long gone, the dish is off the restaurant’s menu (too bad for them, but good for us!), but the recipe itself lives on and is still there on the Internet!

Make sure to use chicken tenders in this recipe
It’s important to use chicken tenders for this recipe. Believe me – I cook a variety of chicken all the time and know the difference. There is something about chicken tenders that makes a difference here.
Because chicken tenders are coated in paprika, creole seasoning and flour mixture and then pan seared in a hot pan – the resulting texture of the chicken is nothing short of amazing!
You’ve got to try it to believe it!
Easy Steps to make Creole Style Chicken Pasta
PREPARE THE FLOUR MIXTURE for the chicken by combining flour, creole seasoning, paprika, garlic powder and salt.
Then coat the chicken tenders with the mixture using a fork to flip them. Shake off any excess flour. Keep the flour mixture (to be used for thickening the sauce later).
PAN SEAR chicken in butter and olive oil for 4 minutes on each side for a total of 8 and them remove chicken onto a plate.
MAKE CREAMY SAUCE by melting butter in the pan and adding remaining flour mixture (from dredging the chicken).
Next add heavy cream and a bit more paprika to the pan to create the sauce and then add cooked pasta to the sauce.
ADD CHICKEN to pasta with sauce and spoon the sauce all over the chicken.
