Chicken Gnocchi Soup


As parents it’s really hard to be able to go out on a date night with your significant other. At least for us it was.  Our problem was that we couldn’t find a dependable sitter. When we did get to go out it was for enough time for a dinner. We got creative. I learned how to make food from our favorite restaurants and I’d use them as a special meal for my sweet husband. If we couldn’t find a sitter, we’d feed the kid and put him to bed, then have our own free time together.

3 pieces of boiled Chicken breasts

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons flour

1/2-3/4 cup half and half

2 finely diced celery stalks

1/2 cup finely diced onion

2-3 tablespoons minced garlic

2 cans chicken broth

2 cups reserved broth from boiling chicken

1 large carrot shredded

1 package gnocchi

salt to taste

3/4 teaspoon thyme

3/4 cup coarsely chopped spinach

Sauté garlic, onion and celery. Onions will be translucent. Add flour to make a roux. Add Chicken broth’s and carrots bring to boil. Add gnocchi. Let this boil lightly for about 3-5 minutes just to soften up the gnocchi. Stir in chicken and thyme. Add half and half and spinach. Serve!!
