Lighter version of Chicken Lazone (original recipe link included) Gluten-free

I was in the mood for something different & had a need for pasta, all of which brought me across this recipe: Chicken Lazone  from Plain Chicken.  I liked the sound/idea of it, but needed to make a couple changes, based on personal taste & what I had on hand in my refrigerator.

Ingredients: (for my version)

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp turmeric         (I have been using a lot of turmeric lately, great for joint health & circulation)
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 ground pepper
  • 2 lb chicken tenders
  • 1/4 cup butter, divided (organic, unsalted)
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 1/4 cup organic goat cheese
  • 1 large organic garlic clove
  • 1 Organic green bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup organic minced onion
  • extra dash of sea salt for finishing sauce


Combine salt, chili powder, garlic powder,  turmeric and ground pepper.  Cover both sides of chicken tenders with the combination.

In large saute pan, melt the butter with goat cheese & almond milk over low heat, once the butter melts and goat cheese & milk are combined, add onion, minced garlic & sliced green pepper, just before adding chicken, a dash of sea salt might be in order for the sauce (depending on your taste).  Cook the chicken tenders until done, about 8 minutes.

I served this over a gluten-free, white rice pasta.  I started boiling my water at the same time I started my sauce & placed pasta in pot to boil just before adding chicken to saute pan.  Once all was cooked & pasta was drained, I added all the chicken & light/thin sauce over pasta.  It was delicious, my whole family completely devoured it.  I also sprinkled with a touch of grated cheese at serving.

Cook, eat, please share & enjoy!!
