Chicken Tortellini Soup Recipe

User Rating 4 Star Rating (1 Review)


Thick and hearty chicken soup uses pre-made cheese tortellini pasta and frozen broccoli. This soup takes only 30 minutes of cooking time.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 6 large chicken breasts, boned and cooked
  • 3 (10-1/2 ounces) cans chicken broth
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • 1 (16 ounces) package frozen chopped broccoli
  • 1 (9 ounces) package fresh cheese tortellini
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 (8 ounces) carton sour cream


Save the chicken broth that the chicken was cooked in; you might want to thin the soup.

In a large stockpot, combine canned chicken broth, celery, and chopped onion. Cook until tender, about 15 minutes.

Add the chicken soup, broccoli, cheese tortellini pasta, pepper, basil, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder. Bring to boiling point, turn heat down and simmer 15 minutes. Stir in the sour cream.

This makes a fairly thick soup so if you want it thinner, add a cup of the chicken broth that the chicken was cooked in.

Yield: 8 to 10 servings

I'm currently enjoying a warm bowl of this FABULOUS soup! The directions- super simple. The ingredients-nothing fancy that can't be found in ANY grocery store. I fried the chicken in a frying pan followed by cubing before adding to the final ""soup pot"". I did find it runnier than I had hoped. I rather enjoy creamy thick/hearty soups so I just added a pint of Heavy Cream. Topped my bowl off with some cheese and garlic croutons purchased in the bagged salad isle of the grocerer and wahlah...YUM-O!! I will DEFINETELY be making this again!! A warm soup for the cold winter nights we have in Upstate, NY.
