Chicken and Tortellini Soup Recipe

Chicken and Tortellini Soup Recipe

When out with my kids for various school activities, meals become a little more difficult. Once or twice a week, I pick up an inexpensive rotisserie chicken from Walmart or Sam’s Club. After the three or four of us in my family eat, I usually have enough left over to make soup the next day. This winter I have created a delicious rotisserie chicken tortellini soup recipe that my family loves. When my daughter recently asked for chicken noodle soup, I decided to use up another chicken in my fridge by making a chicken and tortellini soup recipe instead. I also used the bones of the chicken to make my own chicken stock.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups of shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 19 ounces of cheese tortellini
  • 15 ounce can of peas and diced carrots
  • 1 bottle of Blue Moon
  • 2 cups of water
  • 6 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of dried rosemary
  • 2 cups of homemade chicken stock

Directions

  1. Remove the chicken from the bones.
  2. Place the remaining bones and skin in a large pot.
  3. Cover the bones and skin with water.
  4. Cook over medium heat for an hour or more to create a chicken stock.
  5. Drain the chicken solids from the stock.
  6. Combine the shredded chicken, tortellini, peas and carrots, Blue Moon, water, thyme sprigs, salt, rosemary, and chicken stock in slow cooker.
  7. Heat the soup until ready to serve. If the soup becomes too thick, add some additional water, chicken stock, or Blue Moon.
  8. Serve the chicken and tortellini soup hot.
  9. Refrigerate any uneaten chicken and tortellini soup.
