This chicken gnocchi soup is one of the best soups ever! Its rich, and creamy, and so flavorful. Its such a heartwarming and comforting soup, that is perfect for the cool fall weather that we’ve been having.
The soup is made with celery, carrots and onions cooked up with a little butter and then made into a roux. Its the perfect base for this soup to load it with flavor, and to help thicken it up. Then you’ll add milk, a little bit of heavy cream, and chicken broth to make the creamy broth.
I don’t know about you, but we love milk over here. For drinking, or cooking with, you can often find at least two gallons of m ilk in our fridge. Its Colby’s drink of choice almost all day long, which I’m happy to give him, because dairy milk is so naturally nutritious. Its has nine essential nutrients; calcium, B vitamins, Vitamin A Vitamin D, and more – its a good source of protein, and great for our bodies. (Per 8 ounce serving)
My husband said that this might be the best soup he’s ever had, and even my picky 3 year old loved the gnocchi and chicken from the soup! Its a comforting meal the whole family will love!
If you are prepared with already cooked chicken (you can use rotisserie chicken, shredded chicken, baked, whatever – then you can make this dish in only about twenty five minutes, and in one pot. One pot dishes are the best for easy clean up!
