Chicken and Tortellini Soup
Sometimes the simplest meals end up becoming a "family favorite" - as my youngest calls those meals he'd like me to serve time and again.
It's always a treat when all 4 of us love a dish.
So is the case in this spur-of-the-moment weeknight soup I "created" last night.
This is very similar to the Turkey Noodle Soup I posted after Thanksgiving.
I had all of the items on hand, and decided to make a soup.
I served it with leftover Steamed Broccoli from the night before.
I put 10 cups of chicken broth in a large soup pot and turned it on while I cleaned and chopped celery and carrots. I put the vegetables in.
Then I turned the soup to high and, once boiling, added in packaged cheese tortellini.
I let that cook on medium high for 7 minutes.
Then I added shredded chicken from a rotisserie chicken (or you could use 3 cooked chicken breasts) and cooked for another 5 minutes on simmer.
