Chicken tortelini soup

It's been rainy today....a little chilly..(low 70"s!) so I wanted some soup, and this is what I came up with.

sorry, no pics of every step. forgot to take them!

4-5 frozen chicken thighs
1 medium vidalia onion, chopped
4-5 cloves garlic, chopped
2 bags of frozen tortellini (my bags were 19ozs)
4-5 carrots, chopped small
1 small bunch of kale, chopped sort of fine
2 32 oz containers of chicken broth
3 cups of water
salt and pepper

So I put the chicken thighs, chopped onion and garlic, carrots and the chicken broth in a big pot. Bring it to a boil, and cook the chicken. take the chicken out and chop it into bite sized pieces. add the frozen tortellini and the kale. simmer on a low heat until the tortellini is heated through and the kale is wilted. You don't want the tortellinis to fall apart in a rolling boil.

and that's all there is to it! Easy!!
