  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 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...

My Family liked this with some bell pepper and peas. I have to make this at least twice a month or my family feels shorted on something! It tames that hunger and I don't know what we want to eat...
