Chicken Tortellini Soup

Soup season can be celebrated a number of ways. With a bowl full of chicken soup that’s brothy and light, or a cup of creamy broccoli soup. But this easy Chicken Tortellini Soup is one for the record books.

And a creamy chicken soup can seem like a gut buster but this one has so many healthy ingredients it kind of balances it all out. I like to add kale to the mix and garlic because everything that has tomatoes in it should also have garlic.

To keep it creamy but a little lighter, I used half and half  instead of heavy cream with excellent results. And I am happy to say that this is one of the BEST recipes I have made in a VERY long time. It’s made me so excited and proud and almost giddy to share it with you.

It’s like a creamy tomato bisque and chicken soup had a baby…..and that baby was cheese tortellini soup with chicken and kale and epic flavor.

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Italian Seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1 14.5 ounce cans diced Fire Roasted Tomatoes
  • 4 cups low sodium chicken stock
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken breast
  • 9 ounces refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped kale
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  • 1 stockpot


  • Heat the olive oil in a large dutch oven or stock pot over medium/high heat.
  • Add the onion to the pot and cook until softened, approximately 3-4 minutes.
  • Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the Italian seasoning and tomato paste, stirring to combine. Continue cooking for 2-3 minutes longer or until the tomato paste begins to turn a deep burgundy color.
  • Add the wine to the pot and using a wooden spoon, scrape up the brown bits on the bottom of the pot. Bring to a boil and cook until reduced by half.
  • Add the tomatoes, chicken stock and chicken to the pot stirring to combine. Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce the heat to low.
  • Stir in the tortellini and cook for 7 minutes. 
  • Slowly stir in the half and half and cheese, then add the kale. Simmer for an additional 1-2 minutes then season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve immediately with extra parmesan cheese, if desired.


Best if served immediately. If you serve later and the broth has absorbed into the tortellini, add approximately 1 cup extra chicken stock to the soup when you reheat it.
