This Pressure Cooker Chicken Lazone is a pressure cooker version of a detectably rich recipe sent to me by a Pressure Cooking Today reader. Chicken tenders coated in spices, briefly fried in butter, pressure cooked until the chicken is tender, mixed with cream to make a decadently delicious sauce and served over pasta.
I’m updating this easy chicken lazone recipe with a fun new video. It gives a great example of how you thicken a sauce in the pressure cooker without taking the meat out of the pot.
Christy, a sweet Pressure Cooking Today reader, sent me an email a couple of months ago and told me “Thanks for your wonderful website! You’ve made me look like a superstar in my kitchen with all your wonderful recipes you post!”
She went on to ask for help converting a favorite Chicken Lazone recipe to a pressure cooker recipe, and sent me a link to the recipe.
Christy found the recipe on South Your Mouth, who adapted the recipe from a recipe on Plain Chicken. I also found tons of other recipes for Chicken Lzone online, but believe the original recipe comes from the restaurant Brennan’s in New Orleans. Brennan’s is a super popular restaurant famous for their Banana’s Foster.
I can see why Christy is crazy about this recipe. It’s super easy to make, flavorful, rich and delicious. The perfect comfort food.
Thanks Christy for sharing it with me. My family loved it as much as you do.
Put this recipe on your menu for this week. You’ll be glad you did.
