Chicken Gnocchi Soup


  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and grated
  • 4 stalks celery, chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 2-3 T olive oil
  • 1 Rotisserie Chicken + 1 C reserved broth from the bottom of the chicken container 
  • 7 C water
  • 8 chicken bullion cubes
  • 1 (16 ounce) package Potato Gnocchi 
  • 4 C half and half
  • 1 1/2 C spinach, chopped
  • 1 t thyme
  • 1/8 t nutmeg
  • 1 T sugar
  • 1/4 C cold water
  • 5 T cornstarch
  • salt and pepper 
  • 2 T butter

1. Get your onion and garlic peeled and chopped, your carrots peeled and grated and your celery chopped.  2. Heat a large pot up over medium high heat. Pour 2-3 tablespoons of Olive Oil into it.  3. When the oil is hot toss your chopped veggies into the pan. Cook them over medium high heat, stirring occasionally for about 5-8 minutes or until the onions are translucent.  4. Take the lovely rotisserie chicken out of the package and set it on a plate.  5. Pour the broth that is left in the bottom of the chicken package into a large measuring cup. You should have about 1 cup of broth from the pan.  6. Pull the skin off of the chicken, and take the meat off of the bones. Chop it up with a sharp knife. 7. When your veggies are done cooking pour the broth from the chicken and 7 cups of hot water into the pot. Add 8 chicken bullion cubes and give it a nice stir. 8. Add the chopped chicken and bring the soup to a boil. 9. Open up the package of Gnocchi and pour it into the pot. Let the soup come to a boil again and allow the gnocchi to cook for about 3-4 minutes. The gnocchi will be cooked  through when they float to the top of the broth. It should happen pretty fast.  10. Chop yourself about 1 1/2 cups of spinach and toss it into the pot. 11. Pour in 4 cups of Half and Half, 1 teaspoon dried thyme, 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, 1 tablespoon sugar and 2 tablespoons of butter. Stir it around a bit and let it come to a boil. 12. In a small bowl combine 1/4 C cold water and 5 tablespoons of cornstarch. Mix it well and pour it into the soup pot. 13. Bring the soup to a boil, while you stir. It will thicken as the soup reaches a boil. 14. Taste it and season it to your liking with salt and pepper. Enjoy!Base Recipe adapted from this SITE
