  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.

This was very good but I wish I'd have added some shallots and minced garlic to it. I did add some spinach, a 10 oz bag which I wilted with the mushrooms. Good idea, Cochina. Thanks

Came out great, I added some fresh spinach to the mushrooms and some Pecorino Romano to give the sauce a little something extra and oh man! the wife and kids loved it. Only suggestion I might m...

It was great. Put my own spin on it. I added green peppers and spinach along with the mushrooms.

I know, do not make changes. But, I used rotisserie chicken that I had and subbed in skim milk thickened with flour to reduce the calories. Also used minced garlic when sautéing the mushrooms. T...

I will make this again and again! Very good. I instead used a 16oz bag of penne pasta and broccoli. I added garlic to the sauce, and I doubled the sauce. My family loves it.

I tried this awhile ago since I had all the ingredients needed. I just added onion and garlic powder and some salt on the chicken so that it won't be blant since we're dealing with chicken breas...
