This homemade chicken gnocchi soup is the perfect comfort food… creamy, hearty and delicious! Only takes one pot and 30 minutes to make.

Last month we visited my BIL and SIL in New York for their babies blessing and she made the most delicious chicken gnocchi soup while we were there. It tasted like Olive Garden’s chicken gnocchi soup. I knew once I got home I had to get the recipe and make it for my family. This soup is so creamy, rich and delicious. It’s definitely a new family favorite.

Now that fall is almost here, I know we’ll be making this soup A LOT more over the next few months. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for cooler weather. I could eat soup and bread sticks every day during the fall. Mmm…

I don’t know about you guys, but I am a big fan of gnocchi. I had never tried it until I got married, but have made several recipes with it ever since. I also love to get the Olive Garden chicken gnocchi soup whenever they have it on the menu as well. If you’ve never tried gnocchi, you can find it in the pasta section at any store. It is basically mini dumplings made from potato and flour. My kids love to eat them with marinara sauce, but they are SO yummy in soup! I also love eating them with butter and parmesan cheese for a simple lunch.

    This looks really good! My kids, for whatever reason, don’t like gnocchi so this may be a good way to fool them!! Visiting from Tidy Mom.

    This soup is eye-catching! I’m tempted to add in some coconut milk. Hope it won’t destroy the flavor!

      I’ve seen it in the pasta isle where you see all the other boxed pasta. I believe they also have frozen gnocchi too! :)
