Chicken Tortellini & Sun Dried Tomatoes

Chicken Tortellini & Sun Dried Tomatoes - creamy, delicious lightweight meal for your next adventure!

Ingredients

  • 3-4 ounces white meat chicken, canned or in a pack Sweet Sue brand is perfect for this
  • 4 whole or 10 julienned sun dried tomatoes not packed in oil, diced
  • pinch salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons powered milk, I love Nido
  • 1/2 pack Alfredo Knorr sauce pack or creamy pesto, garlic, whatever floats your boat
  • 1 tablespoon dehydrated bell pepper in the spice section
  • 1 tablespoon freeze dried garlic in the spice section
  • 2 tablespoons butter powder, Butter Buds in the spice section
  • 3/4 cup water
  • handful dried tortellini, your favorite flavor

Instructions

  1. For the Keith Ti6300:  

    Add the water, chicken, tortellini, bell pepper, and garlic and water to the pot.  Close the lid.  Bring to a boil, basically when steam starts jetting out of the top.

    Remove the lid and the inner pot.  Let the water drain just a tad from the pasta.  With the liquid that remains in the pot, add the powdered ingredients (butter powder, powdered milk and the 1/2 pack pasta sauce).  Stir it about.  If you want it a little thicker, heat it up until it's the thickness you like.  

    When it's thick to your liking, add the sauce to the pasta in the pot.  Stir. Eat! 


    For a regular camping stove (not the Keith Ti6300):

    Add water, chicken, tortellini, bell pepper, and garlic to your pot.  Bring to a boil.  Turn the heat off. 

    Let sit for about 5 minutes.  Add the butter powder, powdered milk, and sauce mix.  Bring back to a boil for 30 seconds to 1 minute.  Stir. 

    Eat!  If it's not thick enough, let it sit around for a bit. It'll thicken right up.

Recipe Notes

  • To pack this, add all your powdered ingredients into a snack size zip lock bag. Add the spices, veg, and tortellini in another snack size bag. Keep chicken separate, unless it's dehydrated, then you can put it with the pasta and spices.
  • I suggest you make this at home before you take it as a meal on the trail. This is a portion for me. You may be like, "Whoa! This dude's a pig!" Or once you cook it you might think, "This dude eats like a girl! I need to double this portion size."
  • And it's loose too. You want to throw in some onion flakes, do it. Dried carrots? Yeah, perfect! Peas? Uh huh.
