A hearty dish of chicken, cheese tortellini, and vegetables—easy enough for a weeknight, impressive enough to serve to discerning guests.
1. Add chicken broth, chicken base, garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, and chicken breast to a large pot. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer for 15-20 minutes to cook chicken. Remove chicken breast from pot, shred, and set aside.
2. Add carrots and celery to liquid, simmer for 10 minutes.
3. Add mushrooms and tortellini to pot, simmer for 5 minutes.
4. In a small dish, stir together butter and flour to make a roux. Add to soup and gently stir to combine.
5. Return chicken to pot and simmer for 5 minutes.
Serve hot, with shredded Parmesan used to garnish each dish.
These chicken noodle bowls are loosely based on Pho, a dish my husband and I have been fortunate enough to enjoy at our friends’ house. They do a traditional Vietnamese recipe with beef. The dish has a flavorful beef broth, topped with fresh aromatics and vegetables.
I decided to make this version for my husband who has been sick all weekend with a terrible cold. The ginger root provides a homeopathic element to the broth.
