Lemon Chicken Soup bursting with pillows of cheesy tortellini, tender chicken, and vegetables kissed with bright, refreshing lemon juice all made in ONE POT.
Because its spring!
I am somewhat obsessed with tortellini from my Creamy Tortellini Toscana and Caesar Chicken Tortellini to my Cheesy Tortellini Al Forno and Southwest Tortellini Salad. So this Lemon Chick Soup with Tortellini post has an obsessive amount of photos. Sorry. I need help.
After using tortellini in my Creamy White Bean and Ham Tortellini Soup and then again in place of regular noodles in my Chicken Tortellini 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 Lemon Chicken Soup Recipe.
This 30 Minute, One Pot Lemon Chicken 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 lemon chicken soup recipe 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 lemon chicken soup recipe 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.
