This Pressure Cooker Chicken Lazone is a pressure cooker (Instant Pot) 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. 

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.

Pressure Cooker (Instant Pot) Chicken Lazone - Seasoned chicken breasts fried in butter, pressure cooked until tender, served over pasta in a decadent cream sauce.

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 Lazone 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 chicken recipe.
