Chicken Cacciatore with Tortellini

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 pounds chicken legs and thighs
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cans (14.5 ounces each) diced tomatoes
1/2 cup red wine
1 cup medium whole black olives, pitted
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons italian herb seasoning
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 package (19 ounces) frozen cheese tortellini

Heat oil in a Dutch oven or large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and brown all sides. Add onions; continue cooking until onions are tender, about 3 to 4 minutes.

Combine tomatoes, wine, olives, garlic powder, Italian herb seasoning and crushed red pepper. Add to chicken and onions. Reduce heat to low (to maintain a simmer). Cover; simmer 1 hour.

Remove lid and simmer 20 to 30 minutes more to thicken liquids. About 20 minutes before serving, prepare tortellini according to package directions. To serve, place prepared tortellini on a large plate or platter. Spoon cacciatore over top. Makes 6 servings
