Heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat (350°F in an electric skillet). Add chicken and cook until no longer pink, about 2-3 minutes.
Add broccoli, broth, soup, salt, pepper, garlic, and pasta. Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to lowest setting, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, or until pasta is tender. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking. Add more liquid if needed.
Add cheese during last two minutes of cooking.
Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.
