Chicken Cheese Tortellini with Cream Sauce

Chicken Cheese Tortellini

This is a very easy dish with plenty of flavor.  I usually thin the chicken breast first with a cooking mallet.  Salt and pepper on both sides.   Bake the chicken breasts (add a little water in the bottom of the pan, so the chicken stays moist) in a 350 degree oven for 4o minutes.  Once the chicken is cooked thoroughly, I grill it on the stove for just a minute or so to give it a nice grilled look

For the sauce:

I melt 3 tbsp of butter.  Once the butter is melted and bubbly I add 2 tbsp of flour and stir.  Then add milk.  I usually add a cup or so of milk and a half cup of half and half.  Add garlic salt.  Stir until it thickens.  For even more flavor add a cup of Parmesan cheese. Salt and pepper to taste.

Boil the cheese tortellini according to the package directions.  Tortellini does not need to boil very long.  Slice the chicken breast and place on top of the tortellini and sauce.
