Creamy Chicken and Gnocchi Soup

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 yellow onion, very finely chopped
  • 1 package (17.6 oz) gnocchi
  • 1 carton (32 oz) Progresso™ Chicken Broth
  • 3/4-1 lb cooked rotisserie chicken, chopped
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons flour
  • 2/3 cup half and half
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • Salt and pepper

Steps

  • 1
    Melt butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add garlic and onion and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • 2
    Add gnocchi, broth and chicken to pot. Bring to a boil and cook until gnocchi are tender, about 3 minutes.
  • 3
    Whisk flour into half and half. Add to pot, stirring just until pot comes to a boil again.
  • 4
    Turn off heat. Stir in raw spinach leaves (the heat from the soup will wilt them slightly). Salt and pepper to taste, and serve.

Expert Tips

  • To make this soup with uncooked chicken breasts instead of cooked chicken, dice 2 boneless, skinless breasts and add to the pot with the garlic and onion. Sauté just until meat is cooked through. Add gnocchi, broth, etc. and cook remaining soup according to recipe instructions.
