Reviews for Chicken Tortellini Soup
"Delicious, easy and healthy! The only addition I would make is to add more liquid. By the time the last two servings were reached in the pot there was very little broth left."
"I make broth a lot and I found an awesome trick. I will use the carcass of a Costco whole chicken, put it in a cheese cloth and simmer for a couple hours with about 3 boxes of store bought broth. I put the wrapped chicken in the pot with the broth and fill the pot to a level I want with water. I always have people asking why my soup is so tasty. A turkey carcass would work too. I'd break it down, put it in cheese cloth to fit in a pot. Very flavorful."
"Tastes great, easy to prepare. A favorite in our home!"
"This soup has a very tasty blend of seasonings & is very easy to make. The tortellini is a nice variation from noodles. I used fresh cauliflower & broccoli in place of the frozen veggies & used leftover chicken.. This makes a thick soup. which I like, but some people might prefer to add more broth."
"I love this recipe! Simple and quick for those days that I don't want spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Canned chicken works well with this recipe."
