Cookin' Mimi-Chicken Spinach and Gnocchi Soup

This week’s SundaySupper theme is Fall Foods. The flavors of fall are one of my favorite parts of the season. I love pumpkin and apple desserts and I am soup crazy. Nothing says comfort like a big pot of soup bubbling away and this chicken, spinach and gnocchi soup is one of my all time favorites.

It’s not very hard to make and the flavor is out of this world. I used homemade gnocchi but feel free to use dried if you have neither the time nor inclination to make it yourself.

Chicken, Spinach and Gnocchi Soup #SundaySupper

Ingredients

  • 2 medium boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2-3 carrots, diced or shredded
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 10-16 ounces frozen chopped spinach
  • 1 pound gnocchi

Instructions

  1. In a large soup pot heat oil, over medium heat, for 3 minutes. Add the carrots, onion, and garlic, and cook for about ten minutes or until onion has softened and the vegetables are fragrant.
  2. Add the chicken broth to the pot and bring to a boil. Add chicken breasts, reduce heat to a simmer and cook for about 20 minutes or until chicken is tender. Remove chicken from pot and set aside to cool.
  3. Cook the gnocchi in salted boiling water until the gnocchi floats. Drain and set aside.
  4. Add the spinach to the chicken broth and cook for about ten minutes.
  5. Shred the chicken and add back to the pot along with the gnocchi. Cook until the chicken and gnocchi have warmed through.
  6. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  1. I am really a summer time kind of person, except for soup! I do love a good bowl of soup and yours looks delicious, Micha. I would have soup bubbling away on my stove all year round if the family would tolerate it. :)

  2. This hearty soup would make such a lovely dinner!

  3. Mmmm…this soup looks delicious!

  4. Holy wow girlfriend. This looks AMAZING and like something I need to make VERY soon!
    I owe you an email and I’m getting there. Sorry kiddo had surgery last week and other kiddo is leaving for Navy bootcamp tomorrow. Been so incredibly nuts, but after V leaves tomorrow (actually Tuesday morning but she becomes the Navy’s tomorrow….) I will be more focused (I hope, because the tears aren’t fun… blech!)
    I totally hijacked my own comment. Your soup is amazing and that’s the real point!

  5. Um, can you deliver a big bowl of this to my house? Kthxbai

  6. The soup looks delicious . Dropping in from Let’s get social Sunday. Have a great week!

  7. What a yummy fall soup…so easy and full of delicousness!

  8. Saving this, mom’s requested soup this week!

  9. I love gnocchi! I never thought of adding it in soup! Wonderful idea! Great recipe!

  10. Sounds delicious! I made gnocchi from scratch once and it is soo fun – messy and time consuming, but fun haha.

  11. Wow…definitely comfort in a bowl! Looks great!

  12. Your soup looks amazing, and the spinach and gnocchi really take it to another level! Thanks for sharing!

  13. I’ve never tried using gnocci in soup. Great idea!

  14. mmm This soup looks delicious for a cold fall evening! This is exactly the kind of food I crave when the temperature starts dropping! Never though about putting gnocchi in soup. Lovely idea

  15. Mimi, this soup looks so hearty and comforting, perfect for cold fall/winter evenings! I used to think I didn’t like gnocchi. The first time I had it, it was terrible so I wrote it off. I just had some this past weekend and fell in love – they were soft and oh-so-flavourful. Now I know that my initial experience was due to the poor quality of the product. I can’t wait to try your soup!

  16. I love love love gnocchi, so I’d be all over this soup! What a great combination
