Creamy Italian Chicken and Tortellini Soup Recipe

Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

Members of my family gathered for lunch a couple days ago. I made a Creamy Italian Chicken with Tortellini Soup that turned out nice. There was also Grilled Ham and Cheese sandwiches, Cheddar Biscuits, and Apple Pie. A two hour nap soon followed!

The recipe for the soup is below.

Recipe: Creamy Italian Chicken and Tortellini Soup


  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3  32 oz. boxes of Chicken Broth
  • 1/2 Chicken  cooked and diced (I used a store bought rotiserie chicken)
  • 1  package Cheese Tortellini (I use Buitoni Brand from the store's refrigerator section)
  • 1  Yellow Sweet Onion diced
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced or diced Carrots
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped celery
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 cups Sour Cream
  • Italian Seasoning (to your taste)
  • Salt (to your taste)
  • Chopped Fresh Parsley


In large pot, lightly saute the chopped onions, minced garlic and celery in a couple tablespoons of butter. Add in the carrots.  Add the chicken broth, salt and Italian seasoning. Add in the diced chicken.  When the carrots are tender, drop in the tortellini, sour cream and fresh parsley.  Stir until the sour cream is completely blended with the broth. Continue cooking until the tortellini are done (about 15 minutes).

*With this recipe, I made a small bouquet of fresh herbs from my garden (Sage, Rosemary and Thyme).  I tied them together with string and put them in the pot at the same time as the broth.  I discarded the bouquet before serving.

George Souto - The irony of this lunch was that I invited everyone the week before when temps were cooler.  And, as it turned out, Thursday when I actually had the lunch was the hottest day of the year thus far. . .An excruciating 107 degrees.  Yet, the soup was still good!

Boy, Myrl Jeffcoat, did some of us miss a fantastic lunch at your place last week.  Everything looked over-and-beyond yummy.  I did print your recipe for the Creamy Italian Chicken and Tortellini Soup and cannot wait to try it. Your menu for the lunch was so perfect...

Happy Friday morning,   Myrl Jeffcoat. Yes, I know it is breakfast time and I am hungry and yes, concerned about Dorian on its way to visit us here in Orlando.  Still I have your Chicken and Tortellini soup on mind since I saw the photo and recipe the other day.  Sure wish I had a bowl of your soup here in front of me right now.  Think I need it to fight Dorian, so will you send some it the way Amazon does  -  same day service :) And thank you so very much...
