I decided to take ingredients from several recipes to make my super Easy Creamy Chicken Tortellini Soup and what I ended up with was to die for.
I don’t do recipes often. I really think it is kinda hard to take pretty pictures of food after you have cooked and your kitchen is all torn up. However, I could not pass up the opportunity to share an amazing recipe I just created of Creamy Chicken Tortellini Soup because it is incredibly easy and tastes amazing.
Since it’s fall I wanted to whip up something that would warm you from the inside instead of having to throw on a pair of pants. I picked up a package of spinach tortellini on a recent trip to Aldi with no actual meal in mind. Fast forward to this morning, Tommie cooked a couple of boneless skinless chicken breasts that were defrosted in the fridge so they didn’t go to waste. He added a bit of Weber Salt Free Chicken Seasoning before cooking them. Then while digging through the cabinet for a creative lunch idea for my toddler Landon, I came across the package of tortellini I had picked up. That is all it took to spark an idea to make Chicken Tortellini Soup. The downside is that I have never made it before.
I did a bit of searching online for tortellini soups and chicken tortellini soup, almost all the recipes I found had pretty much the same ingredients including celery and carrots which I didn’t have. I also wanted a different flavor than what I was running across. Another recipe didn’t include carrots or celery, but instead used cream, flour, and diced tomatoes to make a creamy broth. After reading through many recipes I decided to take ingredients from several recipes to make my Easy Creamy Chicken Tortellini Soup and what I ended up with was to die for.

I believe Landon gave his seal of approval also because he cleaned his bowl.
