Combining the irresistible flavors of the original recipe with the delightful taste of tortellini, this dish is a guaranteed hit for the whole family. In just 30 minutes or less, you can create a meal that will leave everyone begging for more.

A Marriage of Flavors

To begin, you’ll need two large chicken breasts, sliced into cubes. In a bowl or your trusty Better Breader Bowl, mix together ½ cup of flour, ½ teaspoon each of salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder. This flavorful flour mixture will be the perfect coating for your chicken. Dip each chicken breast into the mixture, ensuring they are well coated, then shake off any excess flour.

In a skillet over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Place the coated chicken breasts into the skillet and cook for around 4-5 minutes on each side. Keep an eye on the chicken, ensuring it turns a beautiful golden brown and reaches an internal temperature of at least 165º.

Once the chicken is cooked, set it aside on a plate. In the same skillet, add 2 tablespoons of minced garlic, ⅓ cup of chopped sun-dried tomatoes, and 1 cup of chicken broth. Lower the heat and add 1 cup of heavy cream and 1 cup of Parmesan cheese to create a luscious sauce. Stir frequently, then introduce 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes, ½ teaspoon each of oregano and thyme. Allow the flavors to meld together, creating a delectable and fragrant sauce.

Now, it’s time to bring in the star of the show – the tortellini. Add one 19 oz bag of frozen tortellini to the skillet, cover, and let it cook for a few minutes until it’s tender. Once the tortellini is ready, reintroduce the cooked chicken into the skillet, ensuring that everything is coated in the creamy sauce.
