Brittany’s Amazing Chicken Tortellini Soup

Brittany’s Amazing Chicken Tortellini Soup

recipe credit: Brittany Sparley

-2lbs Chicken Tenders
-2qts Chicken Broth or Stock
-1 family size pkg (or 2 small pkgs) of fresh cheese tortellini
-Dry Italian seasoning or fresh basil, thyme, sage and/or oregano, finely chopped
-Pepper, to taste
– Parsley, chopped (a couple handfuls)
-Freshly Shredded Parm Cheese

Chop chicken tenders into bite size pieces. Rub Italian Seasoning or fresh herbs into chicken. Boil chicken until cooked through. While chicken is boiling, bring broth/stock to a gentle boil in a soup pot. When chicken is cooked and broth/stock is boiling, add chicken to broth/stock. Cook for about 3 minutes. Raise heat on stock.

(Okay, I’m not sure how to word this for the recipe, but I strain the water that I boiled the chicken in, and add that to the soup as well. It totally adds to the flavor. The one time I didn’t add the water…the soup was disappointing!)

When stock is at a rolling boil, add tortellini. Cook according to package directions, usually about 9 minutes. Let soup cool, about 5 minutes. Add parsley for color. Add pepper to taste. Garnish with Parm cheese.
