The best part of this dish is that it is incredibly simple to make. It requires no marinating or prep. Just sprinkle the seasoning on the chicken, cook and add cream. It takes about 15 minutes total. You can't beat that! I like to serve this over angel hair pasta, but it would also be good with mashed potatoes.
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 2 pounds chicken tenders

- 2 cups heavy cream

Combine salt, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. Sprinkle over both sides of chicken tenders.
In large saute pan, melt half of the butter over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken tenders until done, about 8 minutes.
Pour the cream and remaining butter into the skillet. Lower heat and simmer until the sauce thickens, about 5-7 minutes.
Serve chicken and sauce over pasta or mashed potatoes, if desired.
