Chicken Tender Lazone

Keto Recipes > Keto Dinner Recipes

This flavorful chicken dinner comes together in a flash! Smoky chicken tenders are pan seared in butter then served with a decadent sauce over zoodles. I can get this on the table in 30 minutes or less, so it’s the perfect dinner for a busy night.

I can almost promise that you’ll catch someone desperately scraping the last bits of sauce out of the pan. The ingredient list might look simple at first glance, but it’s that good.

It’s a little spicy, so feel free to omit or decrease the cayenne pepper if that’s not your thing.

Zucchini is the easiest noodle choice, but this would also pair great with eggplant noodles or even just over cauliflower rice.

  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika

3. Melt 3 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet. Use medium-high heat. Add the chicken tenderloins and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side. The chicken should reach 165°F. Once they are done set them aside on a plate. I usually cook these in two batches.

4. Cook the spiral zucchini and season with salt and pepper. You can saute in another pan or cook in the microwave. Drain any excess water.

5. Add 2 tablespoons of butter to the skillet that you cooked the chicken in.

6. Whisk in the cup of cream. The whisk and cream should lift up the browned bits off the bottom of the pan. Whisk in the xanthan gum and the sauce will thicken up. Taste to check the seasoning and add additional salt or pepper as needed.

7. Serve with the zucchini and chicken. You can layer it like I did here, or toss with the zoodles and serve the chicken on top.
