Chicken Tortellini Soup Recipe (Quick Dinner Idea)
Chicken Tortellini Soup
4 cups water
1 can (10 1/2 oz) chicken broth
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
2 cans (10 1/2 oz) cream of chicken soup
4 cups cooked chicken
3/4 tsp. basil
3/4 tsp. oregano
Pinch of minced garlic
1 pkg. (16 oz) frozen broccoli and carrots
1 pkg. cheese tortellini
*Notes: I usually just cook 3 or 4 frozen chicken breasts and cut them up into very small pieces. I also often substitute the dried minced onion from my spice cabinet if I don't have a fresh onion on hand. I add dashes of salt and pepper to taste.
1. In a large pot, combine water, chicken broth, cream of chicken soups, chicken, and spices. Bring to a boil.
2. Add vegetables and tortellini. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
And that's it.
Pretty easy, huh? This is delicious served with a side of crusty bread.
If I'm taking a meal to someone, this recipe easily leaves an extra small portion (great because T won't eat tortellini-so it's all mine!). I also slice and butter the crusty bread with a note for the recipient to bake it (in foil) at 350 for 15 minutes. Add a plate of brownies, and you have a yummy meal to bless someone else with!
