Creamy Chicken Gnocchi Soup

Contributed By: Terry Borden


1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/3 cup butter, divided
1 small onion, chopped
1 medium carrot, shredded
1 celery rib, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3-1/2 cups 2% milk
1-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon reduced-sodium chicken bouillon granules
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
1 package (16 ounces) potato gnocchi
1/2 cup chopped fresh spinach


In a Dutch oven, brown chicken in 2 tablespoons butter. Remove and keep warm. In the same pan, saute the onion, carrot, celery and garlic in remaining butter until tender.
Whisk in flour until blended; gradually stir in the milk, cream, bouillon and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes.
Add the gnocchi and spinach; cook until spinach is wilted, 3-4 minutes. Add the chicken. Cover and simmer until heated through (do not boil), about 10 minutes.

Helpful Hints:

Look for potato gnocchi in the pasta or frozen foods section.
