“Marry Me” Chicken & Tortellini

“Marry Me” Chicken & Tortellini is a delicious and flavorful dish that combines tender chicken breasts with creamy tomato sauce and cheesy tortellini. Here’s a recipe for this delightful meal:


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (14 ounces) diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 package (20 ounces) refrigerated tortellini
  • Fresh basil leaves, chopped (for garnish)
  • Grated Parmesan cheese (for serving)

Preparation time: 15 minutes Cooking time: 30 minutes Total time: 45 minutes


  1. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook until browned on both sides and cooked through, about 6-8 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, add diced onion and minced garlic. Sauté until the onion is translucent and the garlic is fragrant.
  4. Add diced tomatoes (with their juice), chicken broth, heavy cream, dried basil, dried oregano, and red pepper flakes (if using). Stir to combine.
  5. Bring the mixture to a simmer and let it cook for about 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together and the sauce to thicken slightly.
  6. While the sauce is simmering, cook the tortellini according to the package instructions. Drain and set aside.
  7. Return the cooked chicken breasts to the skillet with the sauce and let them simmer in the sauce for an additional 2-3 minutes to absorb the flavors.
  8. To serve, place a portion of cooked tortellini on a plate, top with a chicken breast, and spoon some of the creamy tomato sauce over the top.
  9. Garnish with freshly chopped basil leaves and grated Parmesan cheese.
  10. Enjoy the “Marry Me” Chicken & Tortellini while it’s warm and flavorful.
