Creamy Chicken Gnocchi Soup

Rated as 4.7 out of 5 Stars

"This is a favorite for cool weather sports nights when we all eat at different times. After adding the chicken and gnocchi, throw it in a slow cooker on the lowest setting so it is ready when you are. Serve with pesto bread sticks."

  1. Melt butter with olive oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Cook and stir zucchini, celery, onion, red bell pepper, carrots, and garlic in the hot butter and oil until vegetables are soft, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir flour into mixture, coating vegetables; cook 2 more minutes.
  2. Stir chicken broth into vegetables, stirring until flour paste combines with broth and soup is thick and smooth, about 5 minutes. Pour in both kinds of half-and-half; bring to a simmer. Cook until slightly thickened, about 5 more minutes. Gently fold chicken, gnocchi, and spinach into soup. Season with salt, black pepper, thyme, and nutmeg. Adjust thickness by adding more chicken broth, if desired.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Rotisserie chicken gives the best flavor, but any cooked chicken will do. You can leave some of the veggies out to make it more of a comfort food, and then put them in a side salad instead.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I used diced chicken breast and followed the recipe besides that. Didn't have the flavor I was looking for.

4.5 Used squash gnocchi, 1 pint of half and half, one cup of water. Otherwise, recipe as presented.

Everyone loved it! I added mushrooms just because I had some. I think this would also be good with tortellini instead of gnocchi.

Much better a day later. Also, i would take out the gnocchi & chicken & add lump crab meat for a delicious bisque.
