This recipe comes from "Sugar Bust for Life" cookbook by the Brennan's of New Orleans to support the Sugar
Busters! way of eating. This is a delicious recipe even if you're not a Sugar Buster! In fact at one point my husband told me that he got better meals when I'm on a diet! (I still cook white rice, pasta, or potatoes for the family, I just skip that part of the meal for myself)

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1 tsp
salt
1 1/2 tsp
chili powder
1 1/2 tsp
onion powder
2 tsp
garlic powder
4
bonless, skinless chicken breasts (or 3 large breasts cut into halves)
1/4 c
(1/2 stick) butter
1/2 c
heavy cream

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Note: The original recipe calls for 4 chicken breasts. I find that the chicken breasts I buy these days are just HUGE, so I buy the 3 pack and cut them into halves. If your chicken breasts are smaller you could use 4 whole.
2
Note: Depending on your preferences you may want to double the seasonings. I find that I need to double it to completely coat the chicken breasts the way I want them. (The seasoning also flavors the sauce, and it comes out just right)
3
In a small bowl, combine the first 4 ingredients; coat chicken breasts with the seasoning.
4
Melt 2 TBS. butter in a large skillet and cook the chicken breasts over medium about 7 to 8 minutes, turning them once.
5
Pour the cream into the pan and lower the heat; simmer for several minutes, stirring until the sauce thickens, then fold in the remaining 2 TBS butter.
6
When the butter is melted, transfer the chicken breasts to plates and top with sauce.
