Category: Pasta, Poultry

 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Frozen cheese-filled
  • Tortellini
  • 1/2 tb Butter
  • 1 tb Olive oil
  • 1 lb Boneless skinless chicken
  • Breast halves
  • 1 Roasted red bell pepper --
  • Cut into thin strips
  • Salt and coarsely ground
  • Black pepper -- to taste
  • 4 Thin slices
  • Smoked chicken or turkey --
  • Cut in thin strips
  • 1/2 ts Dried sage
  • 1 1/2 ts Grated lemon rind
  • 2 tb Lemon juice
  • 2 tb Chopped parsley


Cook tortellini in boiling water according to instructions on package.

Meanwhile melt butter and olive oil in large frying pan over medium high
heat. Add chicken breast, salt and pepper, and stir fry for about 3
minutes. Add red pepper strips, turn heat down to medium, and cook until
chicken and pepper is done, stirring periodically.

Add smoked turkey or chicken strips and fresh sage*, and stir fry until
heated through. Add tortellini, lemon rind, lemon juice, and parsley. Add
more salt and pepper if needed. Stir for a minute or two to heat and mix.
Serves about 6.

*If you use dried sage, add it earlier in the process, with the chicken.

The original recipe said to roast and peel the red pepper, which I think is
too much work. You can buy canned roasted peppers which work wonderfully.
If you use them, add them later, with the smoked turkey, since they're
already cooked. I like them, but I also like plain red bell pepper.
