A meal in less than 30 minutes. Chicken Tortellini in pesto sauce.

The Chief grilled out some chicken the night before and I used it in this delicious dinner that took less than 30 minutes.
I didn't take any pictures of the ingredients because I didn't think it was going to come out as good as it did. 
These two ingredients are the key to the sauce. 
9 oz package of Buitoni Tortellini
2 cups of vegetable stock
1/8 cup of olive oil
1 cup of diced onion
Three cloves of garlic chipped
2 cups of cooked diced chicken breast
2 cups of frozen string beans
Three heaping tbs. of basil and herb blend

I started off by boiling the water for the tortellini. Once the water started to boil I put the tortellini in and stirred. Then I took out my wok and heated up 1/8 cup of olive oil. Once the olive oil was nice and hot I added 1 cup of diced onions with three chopped cloves of garlic. By the time the onions and garlic are nice and brown the tortellini were done. I then added the frozen string beans, diced cooked chicken, vegetable stock, cooked tortellini and basis and herb blend to the onions and garlic. Salt and pepper to taste. Simmer with the lid on for ten minutes and serve.

  1. This meal looks delicious and pretty simple. I especially love the green beans in it. I have been on a green bean kick of late, and when I have cooked homemade, I have used green beans too. They are so yummy right now! Thanks for sharing your recipe!
