This One Pot Creamy Parmesan Chicken Tortellini is a family friendly meal that’s ready in no time! It’s packed full of golden brown chicken, veggies and tortellini, all in a creamy parmesan sauce.
Hi, it’s Sara from Dinner at the Zoo bringing you a super easy dinner recipe that’s perfect for those hectic weeknights! Chicken and pasta are always a great combination, and in this case I’m using tortellini instead of your standard pasta. This recipe starts with the chicken – you can use chicken breasts or chicken tenders here, simply cut them into 1 inch pieces. The chicken goes into a hot pan and gets cooked to golden brown perfection. Next comes the tortellini and some chicken broth. I use a refrigerated fresh tortellini for this dish, you can choose your favorite flavor. I tend to make this dish with cheese tortellini. The nice thing about tortellini is that they only take a few minutes to cook!
After the tortellini is cooked, I add in some cream and parmesan. The final step is to add in your veggies. I wilt some spinach in the sauce and stir in some fresh tomatoes. Other great veggie options would be kale, drained canned tomatoes or even thawed frozen broccoli. The final touch is a sprinkling of parsley and you’ve got dinner perfection!
This chicken with tortellini is perfect as-is or serve with a simple green salad or garlic bread. I love that this is a meal my whole family will eat without complaint, and that there’s only one dish to clean at the end!
