30 Minute, One Pot Lemon Chicken Tortellini Soup bursting with pillows of cheesy tortellini, tender chicken, and vegetables kissed with bright, refreshing lemon juice.
I am somewhat obsessed with tortellini. So this post has an obsessive amount of photos. Sorry. I need help.
After using tortellini in place of regular noodles in my Chunky Chicken Tortellini Noodle Soup -my life was changed forever. Spoonful after spoonful of tender noodle exterior giving way to cheesy interior. AKA soft melty cheese in every bite. I was sold. I would use those cheesy morsels in place of regular pasta in every-single pasta dish if the rest of the world was obsessed like me. But for now, we’ll start tortellini global domination with this glorious soup.
This 30 Minute, One Pot Lemon Chicken Tortellini Soup is packed with cheesy tortellini in every spoonful swaddled by warm, seasoning filled broth and tender, shredded chicken. I used chicken thighs in this soup because I was just recently turned on to their rich, moist, flavor and now I think they are perfect for everything (how had I been so closed minded for so long?!). But you can definitely use chicken breasts if you prefer – but I encourage chicken thighs! After searing the chicken for a couple minutes per side to seal in the juices, you add the chicken back to the soup while simmering to fully cook in the broth and get drunk on the oregano, thyme, parsley, cumin and red pepper.
The soup is also bursting with carrots, corn, onion, spinach and mushrooms in a broth splashed with bright lemon juice that enhances and alivens every savory slurp. And slurp you will.
