Creamy Chicken Gnocchi Soup Recipe

I tasted a similar soup at Olive Garden and wanted to try and make it myself. Here's the delicious result! It's wonderful on a cool evening. —Jaclynn Robinson, Shingletown, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Cook: 15 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  • 1. 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.
  • 2. Whisk in flour until blended; gradually stir in the milk, cream, bouillon and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
  • 3. Add the gnocchi and spinach; cook for 3-4 minutes or until spinach is wilted. Add the chicken. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until heated through (do not boil). Yield: 8 servings (2 quarts).
Editor's Note: Look for potato gnocchi in the pasta or frozen foods section.

"What a wonderful soup. It's just like the chicken gnocchi soup at the Olive Garden. I used all milk instead of the heavy cream, and 1% milk, since that is what I have in the house. I couldn't tell that it was missing the cream. I also used an extra carrot and more spinach. Easy to make and will keep making it for a long time."

"We made this tonight and loved it! We added a lot of extra vegetables and chicken so it was probably quite a bit thicker than intended, but talk about a hearty winter soup! Yum!!! We're even planning to make this for Mom and Dad!"

"I have used another recipe but this one was so easy...who wouldn't;t want to try it. A really good , cold end-of-the-day-soup. Love the addition of spinach.

I also have used cut up and sauteed leeks (white part) for an additional zest...yummy!

"Now this is a good "MADE FROM SCRATCH HOMEMADE SOUP". Nothing out of a can. I was criticized when I knocked using canned soups in another recipe. You could also use up some of that leftover ham instead of chicken in this, would be fab."
