After I had Kambree, some ladies from church brought dinners over. The final night was Chicken Tortellini soup in bread bowls. It was fantastic! So since then I wanted to try it. I found a recipe online and figured what the heck! It was actually pretty easy to make. I think next time we are going to add more cream of chicken soup to thicken it up. I will soak the chicken overnight. Use my crockpot instead of a stockpot. Oh and make LOTS more!!! LOL Seriously this is a recipe worth trying!
