From The Culinary Couple via Mostly Delicious

Serves 6.

Ingredients

  • 1 (20 oz) package cheese tortellini
  • 1 lb skinless, boneless chicken tenders

  • 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups spinach, chopped
  • 1/2 fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, diced

Directions

  1. Grill chicken tenders on the stove top, about 5 to 6 minutes on each side until cooked through. Once cooled, dice chicken into bite-size pieces.
  2. Whisk together balsamic vinaigrette and mustard in a small bowl.
  3. Cook tortellini according to package directions; drain. Transfer to a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Let cool 10 minutes.
