The One Pot Dish Of Your Dreams!

Jump to recipe

Tortellini has been rocking my socks lately. I’ve always been a fan but in the past month or so I have been on a mission to eat all of the tiny pasta pockets! Even though I’ve had a particular pension for tortellini  I’ve also been craving a great chicken recipe. This week’s recipe is the best of both worlds, and to top it all off – it’s a one pot dish! My taste buds were blown away with my One Pot Creamy Chicken and Tortellini. This recipe was a perfect opportunity to test out my pan searing skills and for the first time, I feel like I nailed.

I’m always trying my best to finesse my skills in the kitchen. This week, I took a shot at attempting to pan sear. I do get some practice with my cast iron from time to time but I took a different route and tried out my skills on a standard non-stick pan.  When pan searing my chicken, I chose one of my favorite spice blends called ‘Black Magic’.  I did worry it would clash with the taste of the cream sauce but the chicken was a great compliment to the cream and tortellini. I encourage you to think of your favorite spices and experiment when preparing your protein. The key in pan searing your chicken thighs is to pay close attention to time and temperature. I tend to be very particular and use a cooking thermometer to ensure the doneness of most meats I cook. Better safe than sorry!

It was remarkable how heavy of a meal I was able to whip up in no time at all. Lately, I have been really enjoying all the one-pot recipes I have tried. Clean up is my least favorite part of cooking so these meals have been both a breeze during all aspects of my process. This recipe was truly a culmination of all the things I have been obsessed with for the past few weeks. Having the ability to comingle my love of tortellini, chicken thighs, and one-pot cooking really reinforces my love of cooking and sharing my adventures in the kitchen with all of you!
