Ingredients

1
package (20 oz) boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in 1-inch pieces
1
tablespoon Italian seasoning
1/2
teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4
teaspoon salt
2
tablespoons butter
1
carton (32 oz) Progresso™ chicken broth
1/2
cup heavy whipping cream
1
package (20 oz) refrigerated cheese tortellini
1
cup Cascadian Farm™ frozen organic garden peas, thawed (from 10-oz bag)
1/2
cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4
cup finely shredded fresh basil leaves

Directions

  • 1 Rub chicken with Italian seasoning, pepper flakes and salt. In 5-quart Dutch oven, melt butter over medium-high heat. Cook chicken in butter 3 to 4 minutes without moving, until browned on first side. Stir, and cook 2 minutes longer.
  • 2 Add broth and whipping cream; heat to boiling. Stir in tortellini; return to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 14 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in peas; cook 2 to 4 minutes longer or until peas are cooked. Sauce will be thin. Stir in Parmesan cheese. Let stand 3 minutes; stir. Top with basil.
Tips  

Need it cheesier? Top each bowl with a little more shredded Parmesan.

Buy your chicken breasts in family packs and wonder how many breasts come in a 20-oz package? It’s usually three medium-size (6- to 7-oz) breasts.
