Chicken and Gnocchi Soup1 TBSP olive oil
2 TBSP Butter
1 Onion Diced
Several Cloves Garlic, minced (I use the entire bulb)
5-6 carrots, chopped
6-7 Uncooked Chicken Thighs, cut into cubes
4 cups chicken broth
1 (16 ounce) package potato gnocchi (You can get this in the pasta aisle)
~6oz spinach leaves, chopped (They come in packs here, I use about half the pack)
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons cold water
1 pint (2 cups) half-and-half cream
salt to taste (I use about half a TBSP)
Optional: You could probably put potatoes, celery, and broccoli into this. I don't, but I imagine they would work very well.
Optional 2: If you have any common spices around, such as Parsley Flakes, Basil, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Thyme, and Oregano, they work great in this recipe.
1. In a large skillet or pot on medium heat, heat up Butter and Olive Oil. When sizzly (When you flick water at it), add in Onion. Cook for about 5-6 minutes, until the onion becomes translucent. Add the garlic and cook for anoth
