1 tbsp olive oil

2 tsp minced garlic

3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts – cooked and diced

½ white onion – diced

½ c. shredded carrots

4 c. low sodium chicken broth

2 c. half and half

1 tsp thyme

16 oz. potato gnocchi

1 stalk of celery – chopped

1 c. fresh spinach – roughly chopped

How to make Olive Garden Chicken Gnocchi Soup

Step 1: In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the celery, onions, garlic, and carrots to the pot. Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes, stirring often, until the onions are translucent.

Step 2: To the pot, add the chicken. Pour in the chicken broth and season with salt, pepper, and thyme. Bring everything to a boil. Once boiling, gently stir in the gnocchi. Let the soup boil for another 3 to 4 minutes, then decrease the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.

Step 3: Next, whisk in the half-and-half along with the spinach. Continue to cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes or until the spinach is wilted. If needed, season with more salt and pepper.

Step 4: Remove from the oven when done and serve the Olive Garden Chicken Gnocchi Soup right away. Enjoy!
