In addition to the cheese tortellini that “act” as the noodles in this soup, it also has some chicken in it to give this delicious soup some protein.

I like to use a couple of large chicken breasts for this soup recipe but you can adjust based on personal preference.

How to Handle Raw Chicken

  • Leave the chicken in the fridge until ready to use.
  • Be careful of dripping juices. Clean up immediately.
  • Do not wash raw chicken (prevents cross-contamination).
  • Wash all utensils and cutting boards.
  • Wash your hands after handling raw chicken.

The same goes for the chicken broth. You can use a little less low sodium chicken broth but you will need to add a bit more water. You should have about 7 cups of liquid for this delicious cheese tortellini soup.

Try to resist as much as possible the temptation to open the lid while it’s cooking as the slow cooker loses heat. By just opening the lid to stir the contents can make the internal temperature drop by 10°F to 15°F.

Notes

→ Contrary to popular belief, a whole head of celery is called a stalk and a single “stick” from the stalk is called a rib. Since most call a rib of celery “stalk”, I use the term Celery Stick to try and avoid any confusion.
→ Try to resist as much as possible the temptation to open the lid while it’s cooking as the slow cooker loses heat. By just opening the lid to stir the contents can make the internal temperature drop by 10°F to 15°F.
