  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook onion, celery, garlic, and carrots in the hot oil until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in cubed chicken and chicken broth; bring to a simmer.
  2. Stir gnocchi into the simmering soup and cook until they begin to float, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in spinach; cook until wilted, about 3 additional minutes.
  3. Whisk cornstarch into cold water until smooth. Stir cornstarch mixture and half-and-half into simmering soup. Cook until soup thickens slightly, about 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.


  • Cook's Note
  • This soup is a great use of leftover chicken, but in my case I just cooked chicken tenders that I seasoned with salt, pepper and garlic powder in the oven at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes, until done. Also, you can find the gnocchi in the pasta section of your grocery store.

I thought the soup was excellent. For all the people who cant find Gnocchi, most grocery stores will sell it in a vacuum sealed pouch in the pasta section. Even Walmart sells it!! Try the whole ...

I have been making this soup for 3 years now. But not from this site. This recipe is missing something fundamental. Flavour. I would suggest a tsp of thyme. Personally I also had just a hint of...

I've made this twice in the past couple of weeks - once with gnocchi from the pasta aisle and once with the refrigerated stuff. We definitely preferred the refrigerated gnocchi! This soup has ...

This soup is SOO good. I did modify it a bit. Instead of 1 T of oo, I used 4 T of butter & made a roux with 4 T of flour after cooking the veggies (omitting cornstarch). I added the carrots with...

Simply genius! I ALWAYS get the chicken and gnocchi soup at Olive Garden with their salad and breadsticks. It's possibly my favorite restaurant meal. This is so similar to Olive Garden's recipe...

This soup is absolutely delicious. I followed the recipe exactly; however, I did omit the cornstarch & didn't need it. My grocery did not have the small gnocchi so I did cut mine...

This soup is delicious and perfet for a cool fall day! I did not use the cornstarch/water mixture. I used nonfat half and half and a rotisserie chicken and it was thick, creamy, and had a grea...
