Bring a nonstick skillet to medium heat and add 1 tbsp. or olive oil. Pan sear the chicken tenders on each side for 5 minutes until golden brown on the outside. Remove from heat and set aside on a plate. Cover with aluminum foil.
In the same skillet, add 1 tbsp. of olive oil. Pan sear the onions until translucent in color.
Add in the minced garlic along with the black pepper, salt and Italian seasoning. Sauté for a about 1 minute.
Add in the chicken broth and heavy cream. Let the sauce cook for about 1- 2 minutes on medium. Add in the cheddar cheese and mix well until the cheese melts.
Add the chicken back in as well as the broccoli florets. Cover and cook for 5 more minutes on medium low heat until the broccoli is tender.
Remove from heat and serve with your favorite side dish.
Ideally shred your own cheese, it melts better than pre shredded.
You can use sharp or mild cheddar, depending on how strong you want that cheese flavor!
If the sauce is too thick, you can a touch more chicken broth.
For a pop of heat, add in some chili flakes.
Garnish with fresh parsley for a pop of freshness and color!
