Chicken Tortellini Soup is delicious, fun to eat, and popular with all ages. So get ready to make a super easy and delicious soup your whole family is going to love!

The base of this soup recipe is very much like your standard chicken noodle soup. I just decided one night to add some tortellini instead of egg noodles.

Those with food allergies should note tortellini do have eggs and dairy. 

I have seen gluten-free frozen tortellini available in the freezer section at Whole Foods, but again, it did have dairy and eggs. So be sure to read labels if you have food allergies.

 

Here is my gluten, dairy, and egg-free version of this chicken tortellini soup. I tossed in some gluten-free brown rice penne. It’s a delicious option.

 

To Make Chicken Tortellini Soup You Will Need:
chicken breast
carrots
celery
bay leaf
chicken broth, we like lots of broth. I feel like the amount of broth, (liquid) is a personal choice.
chicken bouillon.
thyme, crushed.
Salt and pepper
frozen tortellini, gluten-free if needed.
Fresh parsley for garnish

I allow people to add their own cooked pasta to their bowls since half of us are gluten-free.

We like to serve our Tortellini soup with super easy homemade dinner rolls or
