Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Place chicken in a bowl and add oil, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, kosher salt, and pepper. Toss to coat.

  • Cook chicken on the preheated grill until no longer pink in the centers and the juices run clear, about 6 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove from the grill and allow to cool.

  • Meanwhile, fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil; stir in tortellini and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the tortellini float to the top and the filling is hot, about 3 minutes. Drain and set aside; keep warm.

  • Slice chicken breast into bite-size pieces.

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, 2 to 3 minutes. Add cream and heat to room temperature, about 3 minutes more. Stir in Parmesan cheese and allow to melt, 2 to 3 minutes. Add Italian seasoning and pepper. Bring to a slow boil for about 1 minute before tossing in cooked tortellini and grilled chicken breast.
