Season the chicken with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large nonstick skillet. Cook the chicken until browned and fully cooked through. Remove the chicken from the skillet, cover it, and set it aside.
In the same skillet, add butter, minced garlic, red pepper flakes, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Sauté the garlic for 3 minutes, making sure it doesn’t burn.
Turn up the heat to medium-high and add the white wine. Stir vigorously to blend the wine with the butter. Cook for about 5 minutes until the mixture reduces by half. Set aside 2 tablespoons of the sauce for later.
Add the rice to the skillet and stir for 3-4 minutes until it starts to brown. Add the chicken broth and remaining 1 teaspoon of salt. Bring to a low boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and cook for 20 minutes. Stir occasionally during the first 15 minutes.
Sprinkle the Parmesan over the rice. Place the chicken tenders on top of the rice and drizzle with the reserved pan sauce. Cover, remove from heat, and let stand for 5 minutes. Garnish with more Parmesan and fresh parsley if desired.
