Ingredients

1 (16 oz) package cheese tortellini (thaw if frozen)

1 tbsp olive oil

4 skinless chicken breast halves, cubed

3 tbsp butter

1/2 – 1 cloves of garlic, minced (add more or less for taste)

2 cups heavy whipping cream

1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese

3 tbsp chopped parsley

1 tsp salt

Directions

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil and add tortellini. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tortellini float to the top and the center is hot. Drain tortellini. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat; cook chicken breast until no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes. Remove chicken from heat. Melt olive oil in another skillet over medium heat; saute minced garlic until lightly browned. Stir heavy cream into garlic and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Add parmesan cheese, parsley, and salt. Continue to cook until cheese is melted or about 1 minute. Stir tortellini and chicken into cream sauce. Simmer until heated throughout.
