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 tablespoon reduced-sodium chicken bouillon granules
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1 package (16 ounces) potato gnocchi

"I really wanted to love this recipe as it but it was kind of bland. We will make this again but will do some changes to the seasonings to see if we can ring some more flavor out of it."

"After making this soup, honestly...it tasted rich but bland. I added about 2-3 tsp. of Better than Boullion chicken flavor and it was amazing! Also, try adding some nice

Asiago cheese on top and it makes it SO good!!"

"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."
