One-Pan Chicken Tortellini Alfredo

On the menu tonight – Chicken Tortellini Alfredo!

If you are looking for something that doesn’t take too long to make AND doesn’t dirty too many pots and pans this is it! You probably already have some tortellini and chicken in your freezer. If the chicken is thawed, you can make this meal in about 30 minutes.

The chicken is tender and juicy. The combination of the chicken, cheese sauce, and tortellini is fantastic. Whatever you do, don’t leave out the nutmeg, it adds that little extra layer of flavor making people wonder what that flavor is.

Keep this recipe handy for your quick, week-night dinners. I hope you will try it and let me know how it turns out for you.

  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 18 oz pkg cheese tortellini (you could also use other varieties like mushroom or spinach)
