Ingredients and Variations

Tortellini – Frozen cheese tortellini are easy to find in most grocery stores. They’re tasty, so why fuss with making from fresh? You could substitute chicken or beef stuffed tortellini if you desire, or even mini ravioli.

Chicken – Any kind of cooked poultry can be used for this recipe. Dark and white meat from a rotisserie chicken is easy to shred or chop. Or make this recipe with leftover holiday ham or turkey!

Sauce – Make this dinner easy with delicious alfredo sauce from a jar. If you’re feeling ambitious, make your own homemade alfredo from scratch!

Broccoli – Fresh is best when it comes to broccoli, but this chicken tortellini recipe is all about fuss-free meal prep, so go ahead and use a package of frozen florets. Once it’s cooked in the cheese sauce, no one will know the difference! Or switch it up with some spinach for a dish with a more chicken florentine feel.

How to Make Chicken Tortellini Alfredo

  1. Cook the tortellini adding broccoli in the last 3 minutes
  2. In a casserole dish, stir in drained tortellini and broccoli with chicken, parmesan cheese, and Alfredo sauce, as directed in the recipe below.
  3. Top with mozzerella and parmesan cheese, and bake until bubbling.

Serve hot with with breadsticks or garlic bread, a side of roasted vegetables or fresh and tangy Greek salad.

Making Ahead and Storing

  • Tortellini alfredo with chicken is a perfect make-ahead meal for refrigerating or freezing. It will keep in the refrigerator for 3-4 days, or in the freezer for 3-4 months.
  • To freeze, prepare the recipe according to the instructions, but don’t bake or top with cheese. Freeze it in the casserole dish and remove to a freezer bag, or wrap it with foil and plastic wrap when hardened.
  • To cook from frozen, just pop it back in the dish and thaw it in the refrigerator, or bake from frozen at 350°F and double the cooking time. Add the cheese topping after 20 minutes or so.
