Chicken Gnocchi Soup

Serves 6

Prep time: 5 minutes to 10 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped

  • 1 cup shredded carrots

  • 2 stalks celery, diced

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth (32 ounces)

  • 2 cups cooked, shredded chicken

  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves

  • 1 pound refrigerated potato gnocchi (not frozen)

  • 1 (5-ounce) bag baby spinach

  • 1 1/2 cups half-and-half

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat until shimmering. Add the onion, carrot, celery, garlic, salt, and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally until softened, about 5 minutes.

  2. Stir in the broth, chicken, and thyme, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the gnocchi, spinach, and half-and-half, and cook until the gnocchi is cooked through and the spinach is wilted, 2 to 3 minutes more. Serve immediately.
