- 1 pound chicken breasts, cooked and diced shopping list
- 4 cups chicken broth shopping list
- 2 cups half and half shopping list
- 1 tablespoon olive oil shopping list
- 3 stalks celery, diced shopping list
- 3 cloves garlic, minced shopping list
- 2 carrots, shredded shopping list
- 1 small to medium sized onion, diced shopping list
- 1- 6 ounce bag baby spinach shopping list
- 1- 16oz. package potato gnocchi (I used the mini ones) shopping list
- salt and pepper, to taste (optional) shopping list
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch dissolved in about 2 tablespoons cold water (optional) shopping list
How to make it
- Heat olive oil in pot over medium heat.
- Saute the onion, celery, garlic and carrots, until onion becomes translucent.
- Add chicken and chicken stock. Bring to a boil.
- Add gnocchi and gently boil until they are done (about 3-4 minutes).
- Add half and half and allow to heat through.
- Add spinach and cook until just wilted.
- Combine cornstarch and water to make a slurry, if using.
- Bring soup to a gentle boil and add slurry, optional, a little at a time, until desired thickness is achieved.
- Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
- Serve and enjoy!
- NOTE: This soup is a great use of leftover chicken, but in my case I just cooked chicken tenders that I seasoned with salt, pepper and garlic powder in the oven at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes, until done. Also, you can find the gnocchi in the pasta section of your grocery store.

This is very yummy! Kind of like chicken pot pie. I used chicken that I poached in chicken stock seasoned with Mrs. Dash original. I didn't have spinach so left it out. I also added some Mrs. Dash seasoning to the soup and about 2 tbsp cornstarch.DetroitTokyo in Detroit loved it
