  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ red onion chopped
  • 1 chicken breast boneless and skinless
  • 2 ½ cups (591ml) chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried rosemary
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 cup (225ml) tomato sauce
  • 3 cups (325g) fresh tortellini
  • 1 ½ cup (45g) baby spinach
  • ¾ cup (177ml) heavy cream


  • Set the Instant Pot to the sauté setting. Add the olive oil and the onion and cook until translucent. Add the chicken breast, stock, spices, and tomato sauce.
  • Close the lid and turn the valve to the sealing position. Set to manual pressure / high pressure for 6 minutes.
  • When done, perform a quick pressure release (QPR) to manually release steam. Then open the lid and, with the help of 2 forks, shred the chicken breast.
  • Set to sauté mode again. Add the tortellini and cook for 5 minutes. Turn off.
  • Then add in spinach and heavy cream and stir to incorporate. Wait 3 minutes before serving to allow the spinach to wilt a bit.



  • Use chicken thighs – Use boneless skinless chicken thighs for an even more affordable option.
  • Use the greens you have – use the greens you already have on hand, kale for example works just as well as spinach.
  • Bulk it with veggies – You could add in a few more veggies and a little more broth to bulk it out.
  • There are 10 Blue Plan SmartPoints in one serving of this.
