Ingredients

1 cup chicken breasts

1 tablespoon butter
cup carrots
diced
1 cup celery
diced
1 cup onions

5 ½ cups chicken broth, low salt
or use chicken bouillon

¼ teaspoon garlic powder

½ pound tortellini

1 tablespoon parsley leaves

Directions

Melt the tablespoon of butter in a heavy pot over medium heat until sizzling.

Add the holy trilogy of vegetables (onions, carrots, celery) to the saucepan and sauté for about 5 minutes.

Add chicken and cook 5 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.

Add chicken stock (or use bouillon cubes + water to match), along with the thyme and garlic powder and bring to the boil and reduce heat to simmer until all of the vegetables are tender.

Increase heat, add tortellini and cook for about 10 minutes (or until the tortellini is al denté according to package directions).
