Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add tortellini. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tortellini float to the top and the filling is hot, about 5 minutes. Drain.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir chicken breast in hot oil until no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Melt butter in another skillet over medium heat; cook and stir mushrooms and garlic powder until mushrooms begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Stir heavy cream into mushrooms and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Add Parmesan cheese, parsley, and salt. Continue to cook until cheese is melted, about 1 minute.
  4. Stir tortellini and chicken into mushroom-cream sauce. Simmer until heated through, about 2 minutes.

Family really liked this dish, although I did sub green & red peppers for the mushrooms as we are not mushroom eaters. I had chicken in the freezer that I had diced and cooked. That worked great and helped me get the meal on the table, quickly. A nice use for tortellini. Thanks Lisa, for sharing your recipe.

Very easy recipe. I baked the chicken, and shredded it rather than pan cook. Much more tender chicken. I substituted Shiitake mushrooms as well. Even my children liked it!
