Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a large stock pot heat olive oil and saute chicken breasts. Season with a little salt & pepper. Cook until mostly done (very little pink showing.)
  2. Add butter until melted and then add the onion, celery, garlic and shredded carrots. Cook until onion is translucent. Add flour to absorb the liquid from the butter which will form a roux. Stir well.
  3. Add the half & half and chicken broth. Stir until it comes to a boil. Allow to simmer while you cook the gnocchi in another pot of boiling water until dumplings float (3 minutes.) Drain & set aside.
  4. Add spinach, thyme & cooked gnocchi to the pot of soup. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
  5. *If the soup is not thick enough, add 1-2 Tbsp cornstarch mixed with just enough COLD water to stir it smooth. Add to the HOT soup & wait for it to boil to thicken up
