"This is a favorite for cool weather sports nights when we all eat at different times. After adding the chicken and gnocchi, throw it in a slow cooker on the lowest setting so it is ready when you are. Serve with pesto bread sticks." — Kristin

Ohhhhh....... this soup is wonderful!! I was looking for a way to use up a rotisserie chicken, and hit on this recipe. The only changes I made were to add mushrooms, because you can never have too many mushrooms in anything. The other change I made was that I use the product called "Better than Bouillon" instead of canned chicken broth, and I added some extra to make the soup a bit chicken-y-er; I thought it tasted a bit flour-y. Oh yes, and I used skim milk in place of the ff half and half. Wonderful soup! I served it with the bread called "steakhouse bread" from this site--warm from the bread machine. A perfect meal!!!!
I thought this was absolutely wonderful. The roasted chicken really made a difference. My husband in really not into veggies so I was able to hide most of then by using an emersion blender on everything but the chicken and the gnocchi (left out the red pepper and the spinach..that would be hard to hide, and put that in my half). Snuck the rest right by him and he really liked it too.
Thanks Kristin for getting veggies into my husband!
I was looking for a good creamy chicken and gnocchi soup and this was just the recipe I was looking for. It is very flavorful! I made it for a large lunch crowd and they LOVED it!! Thanks Kristin!!
This soup is pretty good. I love creamy soup and this is definitely that.
This was delicious! Even better the next day as the gnocchi soaked up all the flavors of the soup. I did make a few modifications though since I didn't have zucchini or rotisserie chicken. Instead, I boiled some chicken breasts and used the water that they were boiled in for the chicken stock. I also added some mushrooms, garlic powder and basil and used 2% milk instead of fat free half & half. I took Kristin's suggestion and served with pesto bread sticks and it was a big hit! Definitely will be making this one again!
