{Chicken Tortellini Bake}

I had a hard time getting a pretty picture of this because let’s face it, it doesn’t look that pretty. But don’t you worry it is delicious. My husband is not a big tortellini fan and he loved this, as did my kids. It was really simple, I just used a package of fresh Tortellini from Costco. You can also mix this up a little by adding different vegetables if you prefer.

16 ounces fresh cheese tortellini 
1 tablespoon olive oil 
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
3 green onions, finely chopped
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup chicken broth
8 ounces sliced fresh mushrooms
3/4 cup sour cream 
8 oz (2 cups) shredded cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 9X13 pan with cooking spray.In a  large non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Brown the chicken for 1-2 minutes and add the fresh mushrooms and green onions, cooking until chicken is done and mushrooms are golden brown. Sprinkle flour over chicken mixture and stir to combine. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Add chicken broth and stir until thickened. Mix in sour cream until mixture is creamy and slightly thickened. Stir in uncooked tortellini. Pour chicken and tortellini mixture into the prepared pan.  Sprinkle with cheese.  Bake covered with foil  for 30 minutes, uncover and bake for an additional 15 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown around the edges.
