This is a recipe my neighbor Kathy and I made often years ago. It is easy and will please even picky eaters.

  • 1 lb. chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, and cubed
  • 1 lb. cheese tortellini
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes, drained
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Basil
  • Parmesan cheese

Bring water to boil for tortellini. Heat a sauté pan on the stove and add oil. Salt and pepper chicken and brown, 10-15 minutes. Add garlic and sun dried tomatoes; cook for 2 minutes. Add wine, let reduce for 2 minutes. Add chicken broth, lemon slices, and reduce heat to low; simmer for 5 minutes. Cook tortellini according to package. To serve, add cooked tortellini to chicken and sauce. Garnish with Parmesan cheese and basil.
