Ingredients

  • 1

    (16 ounce) package refrigerated cheese tortellini

  • 1

    tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 4

    skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cubed

  • 3

    tablespoons butter

  • 1/2

    pound sliced fresh mushrooms

  • 1

    pinch garlic powder, or to taste

  • 2

    cups heavy whipping cream

  • 1/3

    cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 3

    tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  • 1

    teaspoon salt

Directions

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add tortellini. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tortellini float to the top and the filling is hot, about 5 minutes. Drain. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir chicken breast in hot oil until no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Melt butter in another skillet over medium heat; cook and stir mushrooms and garlic powder until mushrooms begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Stir heavy cream into mushrooms and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Add Parmesan cheese, parsley, and salt. Continue to cook until cheese is melted, about 1 minute. Stir tortellini and chicken into mushroom-cream sauce. Simmer until heated through, about 2 minutes.
