Chicken Gnocchi Soup

 
 
 

With the holiday and holiday food behind us and the cold weather still in full force I always try to mix in a soup every once in a while. I have a few go to soups like my crock pot baked potato souptoscana soupchili, and a white chicken chili.

I made a few different types of soups a few weeks ago with my mom and her friend gave this amazing gnocchi recipe to her. If you are a gnocchi fan this is a must try! Head over to her blog to get the complete recipe and directions. Plus do yourself a favor and check out her amazing decor and other recipes!

Chicken Gnocchi Soup

Chicken Gnocchi Soup

Ingredients

  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3 stalks celery, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 carrots, shredded
  • 1 pound cooked, cubed chicken(rotisserie chicken works great!)
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 (16 oz) package potato gnocchi
  • 1 (6 oz) bag baby spinach
  • 1 T. cornstarch
  • 2 T. cold water
  • 2 c. half and half
  • salt, pepper, and a few shakes of red pepper flakes (optional)

Instructions

    1. Heat olive oil in large pot over medium heat.  Cook onion, celery, garlic, and carrots in the hot oil til onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. 
    2. Stir in cubed chicken and chicken broth, bring to a simmer. (OR, just put about 4 cups of water in a pot, add a pound of raw chicken, add all the veggies and a little bit of chicken bullion, salt and pepper and cook til chicken is done.  Cube up your chicken and you're at the same spot!)
    3. Stir gnocchi into the simmering soup and cook until they begin to float, 3 to 4 minutes.  Stir in spinach; cook until wilted, an additional 3 minutes or so.
    4. Whisk cornstarch into cold water until smooth.  Stir cornstarch mixture and half and half into simmering soup. 
    5. Cook until soup thickens slightly, about 5 minutes.  Season to taste.
