Chicken Gnocchi Soup

There is nothing like a hot bowl of soup on a cold winters’ day!

And one of our favorites is Chicken Gnocchi Soup.


If you have ever gone to Olive Garden and had their Chicken Gnocchi, this is very much like that.

Except better!

Chicken Gnocchi Soup


1/2 cup unsalted butter

3/4 cup celery, chopped fine

3/4 cup onion, chopped fine

1/2 cup carrots, chopped fine

1 1/2 teaspoons garlic, minced

1/3 cup All Purpose Flour

3/4 cup heavy cream

3/4 cup milk

4 cups chicken broth

1 1/2 cup cooked, boneless, skinless chicken breast

3/4 cup spinach, chopped fine

16 oz gnocchi

1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 teaspoon white pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt


Start by cleaning your chicken breast. Using heavy tin foil, place chicken on a sheet and add salt and pepper.

Wrap and place in a 400 degree oven for 25-30 minutes or until done.


Rough chop the celery, onion, carrots and place in the food processor. Mince the garlic and add to the food processor.


Pulse the food processor and scrap sides down until the vegetables are finely chopped. May sure there are no larger pieces.


Melt butter on medium high in a large stock pot or dutch oven.

Add vegetables from the food processor. Saute for 1 to 2 minutes.


Add Flour. It should make a paste. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes.


Whisk in heavy cream, milk and chicken stock. Bring to a boil and allow to thicken.


While you are waiting for the soup to thicken, place your spinach in the food processor and chop down fine.



Once soup has started to boil, reduce the heat ย to medium and add spinach, gnocchi and seasonings.

Season to taste.

For the gnocchi, I use store bought to save time during the week.

While they aren’t fresh, they are still good.


Remove chicken from the oven and rough chop. Add to the food processor and chop fine.


Add chicken to the soup. Allow the soup to cook for 8 to 10 minutes.

    I know I would love this soup. I just made some home made chicken soup yesterday. May I ask a question? I have been following you a fair amount of time now. May I know a first name, so I can address you in a better way?

  2. I know you will love this one too! My family fights over the leftovers the next day! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    why did I ask. I must have had a brain freeze. for the life of me I could not think of your name. As soon as you said it, I knew it. Sorry. I was telling a g/f last night that I would like to make a trip out to your area, so I was probably thinking about you too hard tonight. LOLOL

  4. No worries Terry! I do the same thing!

    All I can say is that I miss real potato gnocchi. Good work on the recipe!

  9. Thank you! I haven’t really made them from scratch yet. My younger sister makes them all the time. I just don’t have the time to do it right now. But when we get the B&B open, I can do more of what I want with the food.
