  1. Remove the skin from the chicken and place the pieces in a large saucepan. Add the broth and 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer gently until the chicken is cooked through, about 35 minutes. Skim any foam that rises to the surface. Transfer the chicken to a plate; let cool. Shred the meat; discard the bones. 
  2. Meanwhile, strain the broth and return it to the saucepan. Bring to a boil. Add the carrots, Swiss chard, tortellini, salt, and pepper. Simmer according to the tortellini's package directions.
  3. When the tortellini is done, add the chicken and heat for 3 minutes. Ladle the soup into bowls and sprinkle with the Parmesan.

Quick Tip

Cheese grater
It takes only a modest amount of a highly flavorful ingredient, like Parmesan, to lend depth to soup. Try grating the cheese using the small holes on a box grater for fluffy, delicate shavings.
