  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add celery, onion powder, and garlic powder. Whisk in flour and stir until light golden brown, about 5 minutes.
  2. Whisk half-and-half into the flour mixture. Add salt, thyme, parsley, and nutmeg. Simmer, stirring until the mixture is well blended and smooth, 10 to 15 minutes. Whisk in chicken broth; stir in chicken breast and carrots. Bring soup to a boil.
  3. Cook gnocchi in the boiling soup until they float to the top, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir in spinach; cook until liquid is slightly reduced, about 6 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can add as much or as little spinach, carrots, and chicken as you want.
  • Shredded chicken breast will work as well.
