  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 ounces mushrooms sliced
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 ½ cups whole milk
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ rotisserie chicken skin removed and meat shredded
  • 1 pound gnocchi
  • 1 ½ cups baby spinach loosely packed
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese


  • Preheat oven to 425º.
  • Heat the olive oil in a deep ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  • In the same skillet melt butter over medium heat. Add flour and cook, whisking for about 1 minute. Slowly whisk in milk and chicken broth until smooth. Simmer, whisking constantly until slightly thickened about 5 minutes. Whisk in 1/2 teaspoon salt and nutmeg.
  • Add the chicken, mushrooms, gnocchi and spinach and stir until coated and the spinach wilts. Sprinkle with cheese, transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until bubbling, about 15 minutes. If not browned, you can turn on the broiler for a few minutes.
