  • 1 tablespoon canola or olive oil
  • 3 small boneless skinless chicken breasts diced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 14 oz can diced tomatoes with liquid
  • 1 cup finely chopped spinach
  • 1 cup roasted red peppers chopped
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups frozen cheese tortellini
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella


  • In a large skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook until browned, 2-3 minutes.
  • Add thyme, basil, oregano and garlic and cook 1 minute.
  • Add tomatoes, spinach, roasted red peppers -- stir and cook 2-3 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together broth and corn starch. Add to the pan along with the milk and tortellini and cook over medium heat until thickened and tortellini is warmed through -- about 4-5 minutes. Stir in cheese.


*You can use fresh tortellini, but you will likely need to cut back on the corn starch as it won't release the same amount of liquid
