Copycat Chicken and Gnocchi Soup

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"After 8 or 9 attempts at nailing the famous Italian-American restaurant version, I came out with this copycat version and I like it even more than theirs! Extremely hearty and tasty, this chicken and gnocchi soup will be a crowd pleaser! Best served with garlic bread sticks; you will come back for more!"

  1. Place chicken in a pressure cooker. Close cooker securely and place pressure regulator over vent according to manufacturer's instructions. Heat until steam escapes in a steady flow and makes a whistling sound, 5 to 10 minutes. Adjust temperature until regulator is gently rocking. Cook for 15 minutes.
  2. Let pressure release naturally according to manufacturer's instructions, 5 to 10 minutes. Unlock lid and remove.
  3. Remove skin and bones from the chicken; chop meat into bite-sized chunks. Transfer to a large pot. Add carrots, half-and-half, stock, water, garlic, and bouillon cubes. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Add gnocchi and Parmesan cheese. Reduce heat to medium heat. Let simmer, stirring frequently, until flavors combine, about 5 minutes. Stir in spinach; cook until wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat immediately.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can use 3 chicken breasts instead of thighs, if desired.
  • I like this recipe as it stands because of the creaminess. However, the half-and-half can be reduced to 1 1/2 cups and the remaining 1 1/2 replaced with milk or water to reduce calories.
  • Feel free to substitute the stock, bouillon, and water mixture with 6 cups chicken stock.

Good but not great. There's not enough liquid and it's not very flavorful.
