Ingredients

  • 1 small onion petite diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ cup sundried tomato pesto
  • ½ cup pimentos
  • 1 tsp. black pepper fresh cracked
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. dry oregano
  • 3 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup chicken broth low sodium
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • ¾ tsp. salt

Chicken

  • 2 lbs. chicken tenderloin cubed into 1 inch cubes
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • 1 tbsps. olive oil

Instructions

  • Cube the chicken and add to a bowl. Season with salt, pepper and paprika.
  • In a large non stick skillet, add 1 tbsp. of olive oil. Pan sear the chicken cubes until full cooked. Set aside in a bowl and cover with foil wrap.
  • In the same skillet, add 1 tbsp. of olive oil. Sauté the onion and garlic until tender. Add in the pesto, spices, pimentos and cream cheese. Mix together to dissolve the melt the cheese.
  • Add in the chicken broth and heavy cream. Mix with the pesto sauce and lower the heat to simmer the sauce for a few minutes until it thickens up.
  • Add in the cooked chicken and broccoli and sauté for a few more minutes with the sauce.
  • Remove from heat and serve immediately.

Notes

  • To save time, I like buying broccoli florets. You can always cut your own, it’s up to you.
  • Make sure to cut your chicken into equal bite-size pieces, so the pieces will be cooked evenly.
  • Make it spicy by adding some sriracha sauce, cayenne pepper, or chili flakes.
  • Be sure to use cream cheese that comes in a block and not a tub. The spreadable cream cheese is not the same.
  • You can make this cheesy by adding a handful of shredded cheddar cheese to the sauce if you wish.
