It is no secret, I heart soup. Poor Mister has lived through trial-and-error and nothing but soup for a week at a time in the middle of summer, but I can't help it. Since it's finally not crazy hot here anymore, I can get away with making some! I shall begin with Chicken Tortellini Soup, or Chicken and "Fancy Noodles," as Big Little would say. Plus, it gave me a chance to break in my shiny, new crock pot!

Here's what you need:

Chicken breasts
Medium yellow onion
Chicken broth - 4 Quarts
Italian Seasoning - 2 tsp.
Bay leaf
Chicken bouillon

All you have to do is throw everything except the tortellini in the crock pot and let cook for 6-8 hours on low, until the chicken is tender and the veggies are cooked to your liking. About 1 hour before your soup is done, add in your pasta, and continue cooking until it's done.

**Since I hate chicken fat more than frog legs, I cooked my chicken breasts in the oven for 20 minutes with a little olive oil, salt, & pepper. Then I shredded the chicken after cutting off the fat, and added the chicken when I added the tortellini. I am no Paula Deen or Pioneer Woman; I just hate nasty fat floaties in my soup.
