Better Than Olive Garden Chicken

I have gotten a lot of requests for this recipe, so I'll post it to make it easier for people to find. 

I originally found this recipe on Pinterest. We love it, but it it a little more labor intensive than I like on a busy weeknight. Since I discovered Tyson's Panko Breaded Chicken at Costco, this has become a go to recipe that is easy enough for a busy weeknight and good enough to make for guests or bring to a sick friend/new mom. 

2 tsp. McCormick Montreal Steak Seasoning
1 tsp. freeze dried chives
2 Tbsp. dried basil
3 Tbsp.butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 c. chicken broth
1/4-1/3 c. Italian diced tomatoes, drained and finely chopped
1 c. heavy whipping cream
1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
Freshly ground black pepper

In a saute pan, melt butter. Add garlic and cook for a minute, being careful to not let the garlic burn. Add chicken broth. Bring to a boil over medium heat. 
Stir in cream and tomatoes; bring to a boil. 
Reduce heat to low. Add Parmesan cheese, basil, chives, Montreal steak seasoning, and a dash of freshly ground black pepper. 
Stir and heat until thickened.

Serve over cooked Panko breaded chicken. 

We pair this with mashed potatoes or browned butter Parmesan spaghetti and a nice salad. 
I have yet to make this for anyone who didn't ask for the recipe!
