  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken tenders
  • 1 bag refrigerated spinach tortellini
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 cups half & half
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • cups broccoli florets
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • added parmesan cheese for garnish



  • Preheat the grill to 375 degrees.
  • Grill the chicken until fully cooked throughout and juices run clear. These tenders are small, so they should only need a few minutes per side.
  • Cut the chicken into slices and add to drained pasta once it is cooked.


  • Cook the pasta over med-high heat according to the package directions - add olive oil to the water when cooking the pasta.
  • Remove from the heat and drain.
  • Add the pasta back to the pot.


  • While the pasta is cooking - make your sauce by whisking together the half and half in a medium saucepan with the flour until flour is dissolved.
  • Cook over med-high heat until mixture is bubbling and thick (approx 4 min).
  • Slowly whisk in the garlic, cheeses, salt and pepper - continuing to stir.
  • Cook on low for 3-5 minutes - remove from heat.


  • Bring a small pot of water to a boil over med-high heat.
  • Once boiling, add the broccoli and blanch for 2-3 minutes or until fork-tender.
  • Remove and add to the chicken and noodles.


  • Add the cream sauce to chicken, broccoli and pasta and stir gently to coat before serving.
