How to pronounce gnocchi?
Many americans mispronounce the italian word gnocchi as either no-kee or nyaw-kee. The gn sounds makes a “nyuh” sound, so you should pronounce gnocchi correctly as “nyoh-kee”
Gnocchi are soft dumplings made from potato flour, semolina flour, or all purpose flour usually served in place of pasta noodles with a sauce.
How to Make Chicken Gnocchi Soup?
The soup is made with celery, carrots and onions cooked up with a little butter and then flour is added to make it into a roux. It’s the perfect base for this soup to load it with flavor, and the flour helps thicken it up.
Then you’ll add milk, a little bit of heavy cream, and chicken broth to make the creamy broth. Add in the cooked chicken and gnocchi just long enough to cook the gnocchi. This should only take about 4 to 5 minutes, but follow the directions on the package of gnocchi that you buy.
Add in the spinach to cook till warm and wilted, only about 2 minutes and the soup is ready to serve and enjoy!
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. It’s 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! It’s a comforting meal the whole family will love!
