Chicken Tortellini Alfredo

When we lived in Pennsylvania, our family & friends used the same great caterer for big events. She made a delicious tortellini, broccoli & cream sauce dish. Missing that dish from years ago, I came up with this, Chicken Tortellini Alfredo, to fill the craving.

Ingredients

  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 6 oz Asiago cheese, grated

Instructions
  1. Coat the chicken breast in Italian dressing.

  3. Grill chicken or bake until fully cooked (bake in oven at 375º for 35-40 minutes).
  4. Cut cooked chicken into strips.
  5. Make the Alfredo sauce by sautéing butter and garlic on medium heat for a couple of min. (about 4 min.)
  6. Add heavy cream & cheeses.
  7. Lower heat and let simmer until cheese is melted, stirring often (about 20 min.) The slower you melt the cheese the better the sauce will turn out.

  9. In the meantime, steam broccoli.
  10. Add the cooked tortellini, grilled chicken and steamed broccoli to the Alfredo cheese sauce.
