Monday Meals: Buffalo Chicken Tortellini

Happy Monday! I thought I’d start the week off sharing one of my family’s favorite meals. I got this recipe off a Kroger coupon pack years ago. It’s super simple and delicious.

Plus shredded chicken

Ingredients:

  • 1 package (20 oz) refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • 1/2 cup jarred Alfredo sauce
  • 2 Tblsp Buffalo-style sauce (I actually use a little less because I’m not a huge fan of super spicy)
  • *4 cups cooked chicken (diced or shredded) (safe internal temp 165 degrees F)
  • 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced, divided
  • *For a few years, I’ve used Shay’s tip for perfect chicken (Poach chicken in slow cooker by covering chicken with water (usually 6 c) and cook on low 6-8 hours or high 3-4 hours) Then, I just pull the chicken out of slow cooker and it easily shreds.

Instructions:

  • In a medium stockpot, cook tortellini according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup cooking water.
  • Return pasta to pot. Add Alfredo and Buffalo sauces, chicken, 1/4 c Parmesan and white parts of scallion. Toss; add reserved pasta water and toss again, cooking until heated through.
  • Divide between four bowls; garnish with scallion greens and remaining 1/4 c Parmesan. Serve immediately, refrigerating any leftovers.

Easy. Delish. Enjoy!

Have a great week.
