Stuck in a cooking rut? Forgot to meal plan? Thinking of ordering takeout? Not so fast — this one-skillet chicken with tortellini is here to save dinner. By using smart shortcuts, like refrigerated tortellini and shredded rotisserie chicken, you can have this warm, comforting meal on the table in just 30 minutes. Easy!

This recipe is all about convenience. The prep time is pretty minimal and, thanks to the fact that everything cooks in one skillet, the cleanup is too. It’s truly the perfect dish to whip up on a weeknight when you want something satisfying but don’t want to expend too much energy in the kitchen.

And before you see the word “creamy” and dismiss this dish as being too rich, you should know that this particular sauce is made from chicken stock and milk — no heavy cream or half-and-half in sight. The author even notes that you can use 1% milk if that’s what you normally have on hand, but not skim.

With mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, and chicken, you can feel good about serving this flavor-packed tortellini to your family any night of the week. Don’t forget the Parmesan cheese for serving!
