You want to make the soup more thick and creamier then add extra cream to add more thickness to soup.

You can also add some flour to veggies when sauteing them and then add the stock.This will make the soup more thick.

Always adjust the thickness of soup by adding more stock,in case the tortellini drinks the soup and dries out the soup.

After adding cream always simmer the soup instead of boiling it.If you boil the soup after adding the cream then there chances that soup will curdle.

You can cook and shred the chicken breast at home with a hand mixer or stand mixer or even in a mixer grinder,or else you can use store-bought rotisserie chicken and shred it.
