Creamy Chicken Pesto Tortellini


Today, I'm keeping it simple. I've been seeing tortellini recipes on several blogs and Pinterest and finally decided to whip up something of my own. Of course, I technically cheated using the packet of pesto sauce mix but people are always asking for easy recipes so here it is!

Ingredients:
2-3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 package spinach cheese tortellini
1 packet creamy pesto sauce mix
1 tbsp olive oil

What To Do:
1. Cut chicken into small chunks.
2. Pour olive oil into pan and cook chicken over medium heat for 15-20 minutes or until fully cooked.
3. In medium pot, boil tortellini according to instructions on the packet.
4. In a small sauce pan, whip up the pesto sauce according to instructions on the packet.
5. Once the chicken and tortellini are fully cooked and the sauce is ready, combine all ingredients.
6. Serve and Enjoy!
