Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Tortellini Soup

3 pound chicken, cut into 8 pieces
6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
2 carrots, cut into thin rounds
1 cup swiss chard, cut crosswise into 1-inch strips
9 ounce tortellini, preferably vegetable
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated Parmesan

Recipe Directions for Chicken Tortellini Soup

  1. Remove the skin from the chicken and place the pieces in a large saucepan. Add the broth and 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer gently until the chicken is cooked through, about 35 minutes. Skim any foam that rises to the surface. Transfer the chicken to a plate; let cool. Shred the meat; discard the bones.

  2. Meanwhile, strain the broth and return it to the saucepan. Bring to a boil. Add the carrots, Swiss chard, tortellini, salt, and pepper. Simmer according to the tortellini's package directions.

  3. When the tortellini is done, add the chicken and heat for 3 minutes. Ladle the soup into bowls and sprinkle with the Parmesan.
