Mealthy Tip

Use a gluten-free tortellini to make this a gluten-free meal. Substitute another shredded cheese like mozzarella cheese in place of the Parmesan cheese, if desired. Use chicken thighs instead of chicken breast for a slightly richer flavor.

Delicious. I didn’t have any basil at home so I used a cup of spinach instead. I also added mushrooms. Came out great.

Followed exact recipe but I used frozen tortellinis and defrosted chicken breast (recipe didn’t specify) PROS: Easy, quick, DELICIOUS, chicken was perfectly cooked, whole family approved CONS: it was a little soupy, tomatoes were a tad over cooked and chicken left white floaters. Will make again with minor adjustments!!

I thought it was great! Great flavor. I doubled the batch. I bought frozen tortellini trying to save some money and it worked. I'm not familiar with tortellini so maybe fresh would make it even better. Had leftovers and thought it tasted even better the next day. Will keep on my list to make it again!

This was amazing! This is the first recipe that I actually enjoyed. The flavors were great!

This has a delightful balance of flavors and they infused into the chicken well. We will absolutely be repeating this one. The cook time on the tortellini was just the right amount of time to cut the chicken so the timing is very efficient.

Mine was quite soupy and I had to serve it in bowls. As I was cooking I thought this might be the case. The flavor was great though. I’m sure the leftovers will have absorbed the excess liquid. It was lovely to dip bread in. Of course I could have always drained off the excess liquid but thought I would make it ‘as is’ the first time. I think next time I will put the cheese on the servings as it went a bit glumly when mixed in the pot.

This was very tasty and super easy to make. The review comments helped. I used Wegmans frozen tortellini and I substituted spinach. Both worked perfectly! Mine wasn’t soupy like others experienced. It was a great consistency. Def will make again! Yum!

Meh. Ends up being very brothy instead of saucy and the flavours just kind of fall flat. Won’t be making it again.

This was amazing! My whole family loved it! (Even the picky one!!:) Excellent flavor! I set it to 6 servings and reduced the broth to 1-1/4” and the consistency was perfect-not to soupy. Will make again for sure!!

After reading other reviews, I decided to add spinach. And I used a jar of crushed tomatoes instead of cherry tomatoes. I had to reduce the chicken broth to 1/2 cup because of the tomato juice and it was still juicy, but that was ok. My kids liked it, which is a win in my book! Super easy to make and didn’t take very long either!

Very tasty dish. I didn’t have fresh basil, so I used dried herbs instead. I also added chopped fresh spinach and zucchini at the end instead of the fresh basil. Turned out great, will make again! Thank you:)
