Chicken Gnocchi Soup is the perfect comfort food!  It’s creamy, hearty, and delicious with lots of veggies and chicken in every bite.  This soup is wonderful on a cool night or when you’re looking for something a little more filling.

Gnocchi is basically a mini dumpling made from potato and flour.  They are dense, soft, and small in size.  They are yummy in soup and add great texture.  You can typically find gnocchi in the pasta section of the grocery store and sometimes in the freezer section by other frozen pasta.

This soup is pretty simple to make.  Start by melting the butter with the olive oil in a large Dutch oven or stock pot.

Add the onions, carrots, and garlic, and cook until translucent.  I like to buy matchstick carrots, so I don’t have to chop them.  It makes prep work much easier.

Stir in the flour and chicken broth and bring to a simmer.

While you are waiting for the broth to simmer, prepare the gnocchi according to package instructions in a separate pot.  Drain and set aside.  The gnocchi takes about 5 minutes to cook so the longest part of this process is waiting for the water to boil.

Add the milk to the broth mixture and bring to a boil.  Once boiling, stir in the seasoning.

Add the gnocchi and chicken and reduce the heat to simmer.  I like to use rotisserie chicken because it’s already cooked and all I have to do is slice, which reduces prep time.  You can also cook 2-3 chicken breasts before preparing the soup, sliced, and set aside until ready to add to the pot.

Combine 3 Tbsp cornstarch with 3 Tbsp water.  Add to the pot and stir.  This will help thicken the sauce.  If you would prefer less-thick soup, you can skip this step.  Continue to heat until the gnocchi and chicken are warm.

When the soup is almost done heating, add the spinach and stir.

Ladle into soup bowls and serve warm with some carbs on the side 🙂  I like to slice a baguette, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with garlic powder and parmesan cheese, and bake at 350 for about 5 minutes.  It’s great to eat by itself or dip in the soup!
