Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Pound chicken breast or thighs, cubed
  • 4 carrots, chopped
  • 4 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 Teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 Teaspoon dried rosemary

  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 1 Teaspoon pepper
  • 8 Cups chicken broth
  • 12 Ounces cheese tortellini
  • 1 Cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/4 Cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice

Directions

Place the chicken, carrots, celery, onion, garlic, olive oil, thyme, rosemary, bay leaves, salt, and pepper in an 8-quart slow cooker. Stir everything well. Add 6 cups of chicken broth. Cover and cook for 4-6 hours on high.

Before serving, add tortellini and cook for 10 minutes on high. Add more broth if desired to reach your preferred consistency. When tortellini are cooked through, stir in the cheese, parsley, and lemon juice. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.

Chicken Wine Pairing

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
