Homemade Copy Cat Chicken and Gnocchi Soup in less than 30 minutes


Total prep time: 5-10 minutes Total cook time: 10-15 minutes

  • 2 Cups of Chicken (I use Tyson Pre-Cooked Grilled Frozen Chicken- super tasty!)
  • 2 Cups spinach
  • 1 bag of shredded carrots
  • 1 chopped onion
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 Teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 3 table spoons of butter
  • 2 table spoons olive oil
  • 1 package of potato gnocchi (found on the pasta aisle and very inexpensive)
  • 1 cup of half n half
  • 2 cups of chicken broth (or more if you want it a little thinner)


  1. In large pot, melt butter and olive oil together. Add in all your vegetables and cook down veggies with lid on until all veggies tender.
  2. Once veggies are cooked down, slowly stir in flour to thicken.
  3. Once thickened, slowly stir in the half n half and chicken broth, cooked chicken, and add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Bring the pot to a low boil, and add in the gnocchi. From that point, cook for about 5 more minutes with lid on.
  5. Remove from heat, serve while hot, and enjoy!
