Creamy Chicken & Broccoli with Spatzle

I was looking for something yummy to do with chicken & to try and get more vegetables into my kiddos... they have been extremely picky lately..sigh.. so I came up with this chicken dish... It fit the bill and they all ate it with NO complaints :)  which is rare... My family loves broccoli... but you can use cauliflower or  the mixed bags of fresh broccoli, cauliflower & carrots...use what you like... I also used chicken tenders but use whatever boneless chicken your family likes... I also used white wine but you can substitute chicken stock as well. I served this over Spatzle which is German noodles cooked, or you can use any kind of wide pasta noodles, or rice or potatoes whatever you like...... Enjoy

Creamy Chicken & Broccoli w/Spatzle

1 package Chicken Tenders
1 small bunch of Broccoli, washed and cut into small florets
1 T. olive oil
1 can Cream of Broccoli Soup
1/2 soup can chicken stock
1/3 cup white wine
2 T water

seasonings of your choice ( I used garlic & onion powder, parsley flakes, Garlic no salt seasoning, Mrs. Dash & a pinch of salt & pepper)

Cooked Spatzle (or pasta of your choice, drained and mixed with a pat of butter)

In large skillet with lid, place olive oil and heat over medium high heat.  Combine seasonings and sprinkle over chicken.  Place in skillet.  Let cook for 2-3 minutes, turn over and add broccoli.  In large measuring cup (I used for easy pouring, but you can use a bowl) place soup, wine, chicken stock,water & seasonings whisk together until combined.  Pour over chicken & broccoli and using spoon stir coating all ingredients.  Place lid on pan and let mixture come to a boil, turning down heat to medium when boiling and cook for around 10-12 minutes or until broccoli is done and chicken is no longer pink stirring often.   Serve over drained spatzle.  Enjoy
