Week 7: Chicken Tortellini Soup

tortellini-soup

Chicken noodle soup is one of my favorite things to make when its cold outside. Whether I’m feeling under the weather or just trying to get warm, its a simple, healthy and delicious meal to make. 

To switch things up a little bit I substituted cheese tortellini for the noodles and it was 100% the smartest move!

Ingredients

  • 1½ pounds boneless chicken breast
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and diced
  • 3 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, or more to taste
  • 2 cups cheese tortellini
  • chopped fresh parsley for serving
 

Instructions

  1. Add all of the ingredients to a slow cooker except for the tortellini.
  2. Cook on low for 6 hours.
  3. Remove the cooked chicken from the slow cooker and shred and add back to the slow cooker.
  4. Add in the tortellini and cook for 15 minutes or until they are cooked all the way through.
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately with chopped parsley, if desired.
