I was provided with a bottle of Thyme from Influenster & McCormick to try out & experiment with so today I made Chicken Tortellini Soup!
I've been wanting to make a tortellini soup for a while so I finally bought the ingredients to make one however, once I received the Thyme I decided to go a whole other way with my soup and sort of make it up on my own!
So the first picture there shows most of what I used. We have:
A package of chicken tenders
32 ounces of chicken broth
2 - 9 oz packages of spinach & cheese tortellini
1 package of celery
A bag of mini carrots
I later decided to add in minced garlic, crushed red pepper flakes, and 8 cups of water along with some chicken bouillon cubes (cause more liquid was definitely needed).
I cooked the chicken with some garlic & thyme, chopping it up as it cooked so that it was in smaller chunks:
All of that went into the crock pot along with the chicken broth, some more garlic, thyme, and the red pepper flakes. Then as it cooked I decided that there just wasn't enough broth so I added 4 cups of water with 2 chicken bouillon cubes. After about 4 hours or so I added in the tortellini and then 4 more cups of water & 2 more chicken bouillon cubes and let it cook for another couple hours (all on low).
Now I have lunch and/or dinner for the week and it's pretty healthy!!
