Chicken Vegetable Tortellini

I wasn't going to post this one, but there was some interest, so here it is.  My kids love tortellini, but I wasn't in the mood for sauce.  This turned out awesome.

1 to 1 1/2 lbs chicken, cut into bite size pieces
extra virgin olive oil
1 c chicken stock
3/4 c white wine
2 cloves garlic, minced
soy sauce to taste
Worchestershire sauce to taste
ground black pepper to taste
salt to taste
onion powder to taste
1 bag frozen stir fry vegetables (or whatever veggies you want)
2 c fresh broccoli florets
1 bag frozen tortellini

Drizzle a large skillet with the olive oil, heat to med-high.  Add the garlic, cooking and stirring until it starts to brown.  Add the chicken, black pepper, salt, and onion powder, cooking for 4-5 minutes, until browned.  Remove chicken to a plate.

Deglaze the pan with the wine.  Add the chicken stock, soy sauce, and Worchestershire.  Again, season the liquid with the spices used previously.  Add the vegetables, stirring to coat with the liquid.  Return chicken to pan and stir.  Reduce heat and cook 20 minutes or until vegetables reach desired doneness.

While that's cooking, boil the tortellini according to package directions.  Drain.  Once the vegetables are done to your liking, add the tortellini to the vegetables and chicken, stirring to mix.  Let simmer for 5-10 minutes to allow the flavors to mix with the tortellini.
