Chicken Gnocchi Soup

Creamy chicken gnocchi soup is the perfect way to cozy up during the chilly fall and winter months of soup season.

Ingredients: chicken breasts salted butter olive oil garlic cloves yellow onion shredded carrots all purpose flour chicken broth chicken stock milk fresh spinach gnocchi

The Steps

Step 1: Boil the chicken for about 30-45 minutes. Check doneness by cutting into chicken breast. Set aside so it can cool and once cool, shred chicken. Chop up onion and mince garlic. In the stock pot, melt butter and add in olive oil. Add in onion, garlic and carrots.

Step 2:  Cook until onions are translucent and garlic is fragrant. Add in flour, stir into butter and olive oil immediately to create a roux. Let the roux cook 1-2 minutes.

Step 3:  Add in chicken broth and chicken stock, stirring the roux into the liquid as it pours. Bring the soup to a simmer and simmer on medium for 15 minutes so the soup can thicken.

Step 4:  Add in milk and bring to a boil. Season with salt and black pepper. Add in the gnocchi and let it cook in the soup until the gnocchi begins to float. Reduce heat to low and add in spinach and chicken. Let cook for about 5 minutes before serving.

Hint: make sure you have the roux completely stirred into the broth before letting it come to a simmer. This will help the soup thicken and will also assure you don't have any surprise chunks of flour in your soup.
