THE MAGICAL SLOW COOKER
This chicken gnocchi soup recipe is a classic Olive Garden copycat packed with traditional herbal flavors and hearty chicken texture and easily made in the slow cooker.
Add celery, shallots, and add it to the crockpot along with the carrots, minced garlic, herbs & spices. Pour in the chicken broth & chicken and cook on HIGH for 4 hours.
Shred or dice the chicken and replace it back into the slow cooker along with the gnocchi.
Pour in the cornstarch & heavy cream mixture and stir. Let the soup cook for 20 minutes more on HIGH.
Add the fresh spinach. The chicken and gnocchi soup is ready to serve once the spinach has wilted.
Serve the soup with a fresh Italian green salad and breadsticks.
