  • 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.

    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.

Expert 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.

More About This Recipe
  • Tortellini: fun to say, even more fun to eat. And we’re particularly fond of this one-pot version. You can find cheese-filled tortellini at most grocery stores, but if for some reason it’s not available, cheese ravioli or any other filled pasta would work just fine here. And while this recipe calls for Parmesan, Grana Padano or another hard Italian cheese could also be used. (Looking for an even easier way to make pasta? How about in the microwave?)
