How to Prepare Chicken Gnocchi Soup

  1. Start with Sautéing: Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Sauté celery, onions, garlic, and carrots for 2-3 minutes, until the onions become translucent.
  2. Add the Basics: To the sautéed veggies, add the cooked and diced chicken, chicken broth, a pinch of salt and pepper, and thyme. Bring the mixture to a boil.
  3. Gnocchi Time: Once boiling, gently stir in the gnocchi and continue to boil for another 3-4 minutes. After that, reduce the heat to let the soup simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Creamy Finish: Stir in the half and half along with the chopped spinach, cooking for an additional 1-2 minutes until the spinach is tender. Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper if necessary, then serve warm.

How to Store Chicken Gnocchi Soup

To store the Chicken Gnocchi Soup, let it cool to room temperature first. Once cooled, transfer the soup into airtight containers and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. For longer storage, you can freeze the soup in freezer-safe containers or bags for up to 2 months. To reheat, thaw overnight in the refrigerator if frozen, then warm it up on the stove over low heat, stirring occasionally, until hot. It’s best to add a little extra broth or water while reheating if the soup has thickened too much during storage.
