Ingredients/Variations

CHICKEN – This super flexible recipe starts with chicken breasts. Leftover chicken (or turkey) will work, too! Once the chicken is cooked, it can be removed from the Crockpot, shredded and then cooked with the other ingredients (except the tortellini).

STARCH – Noodles or rice can be subbed out for the tortellini. Once it is fully cooked and the chicken/cheese mixture is fully cooked, it can be served as a whole new entrée!

SAUCE – Even cream of mushroom or potato soup can be used in place of the Alfredo sauce!

VEGGIES – Instead of peas, why not try diced red and yellow bell peppers and sliced black olives? Or, try spinach or broccoli for a whole new twist.

How To Make CrockPot Chicken Tortellini

It’s super tasty comfort food, and comes together in a flash!

  1. Place the seasoned chicken in the Crockpot.
  2. Mix together the Alfredo sauce, broth, and the garlic powder. Pour over chicken pieces and cook on low.
  3. Add tortellini, cheddar cheeses, and peas. Heat until pasta is cooked through.

In The Oven

No CrockPot? No problem! It’s just as easy to make it in the oven!

  1. Cook seasoned chicken in a casserole dish at 350°F for about 30 minutes.
  2. Mix Alfredo sauce, broth, and garlic powder, pour over the chicken. Add the tortellini, peas, and other cheeses and bake for an additional 30 minutes.
  3. If you like, place the dish under the broiler for about two minutes until the cheese is bubbly and golden. This will give your casserole a nice golden color!

Tips and Tricks

  • Cut chicken into uniform sizes for even cooking. 
  • If using frozen tortellini and peas extend cooking time about 15 minutes.
  • For an even creamier version, add a half cup of heavy whipping cream to the Alfredo sauce stage, along with some extra garlic powder.
  • Crockpot Tortellini will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Reheat for school or work in the microwave! Just give it a stir, reheat, and add a little salt and pepper to refresh the flavors!
