Chicken Gnocchi Soup

My husband fell in love with gnocchi while he was serving a mission for our church in Argentina. He’s been asking me to make them for a while now, so I thought I’d give it a try!

Serves: 8

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup finely diced onion
  • 1/2 cup finely diced celery
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 (14-ounce) cans chicken broth
  • Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1 cup finely shredded carrots
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 cup cooked chicken breast, cubed or shredded
  • 1 (16-oz) package ready-to-use gnocchi (or make your own here!)

Directions

  1. Melt the butter into the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add the onion, celery, and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion becomes translucent.
  3. Whisk in the flour and cook for about 1 minute. Whisk in the milk. Simmer until thickened.
  4. Whisk in the chicken broth. Simmer until thickened again.
  5. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon salt, the thyme, parsley, carrots, spinach, chicken, and gnocchi. Simmer until the soup is heated through.
  6. Before serving, season with additional salt, if necessary.
