It’s TORT TUESDAY! Chicken TORTellini is on the menu!

Chicken TORTellini

Your legal department let you down?  Did they back down AGAIN just as trial was starting with some “new” information?  Were your insureds on the wrong side of every liability issue today?  Were you threatened with just one too many lawsuits than you care to endure?  Then its time to treat yourself to the only dish guaranteed to fend off responsibility better than Johnny Cochran on a clear day.

That’s right.  One bowl of our special chickenTORTellini and all your troubles will slip away faster than an attorney heading for the golf course.


1 cup chicken breast meat, diced
1 tablespoon butter
2/3 cup carrots
1 cup celery, diced
1 cup onion, diced
3 chicken bouillon cubes
5 and 1/2 cups water
1tablespoon parsley, chopped
1/8 teaspoon ground thyme
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper
1/2 lb Tortellini, cooked

In a 3 quart saucepan, melt the butter. Next, add the carrots and sauté them for 2-3 minutes. Then add the chicken and cook it for 5 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Add the celery and onions and cook for 4-5 minutes more.  Dissolve the bouillon cubes in water and add the broth to the soup along with the remaining ingredients except for the tortellini. Simmer the ingredients until all of the vegetables are tender. Add the salt and pepper to your liking and then lastly, add the tortellini and cook it until the tortellini is tender.
