Easy Chicken and Gnocchi Soup
I’ve SO honored to be working with DeLallo this year because they’re a brand I truly trust whole-heartedly. DeLallo Pastas have always been my favorite (duh!), but they also make so many unique and delicious ingredients from Instant Espresso Baking Powder to Sour Cherry Spread! I believe that DeLallo is helping Moms, Dads, Sons, and Daughters across the country to create delicious recipes for their family, while taking out some of the stress from the equation.
I’ve used one of my very favorite DeLallo ingredients in this Creamy Chicken Gnocchi Soup, their Potato Gnocchi! YOU GUYS. I’m beyond obsessed with this Potato Gnocchi. It tastes homemade and is so darn easy literally anyone can make it.
The great thing about gnocchi is, it tells you when its done. It rises to the top of the pot and floats. Thanks gnocchi, you’ll make a chef out of me after all! This Creamy Chicken Gnocchi Soup wouldn’t exist without DeLallo, I hope you check them out!
Olive Garden Chicken Gnocchi Soup Recipe (Copycat)
I love going out to eat at restaurants every once in a while (hello, delicious food that you don’t have to cook yourself), but it’s definitely not an everyday thing. There are so many amazing restaurant dishes that I wish I could eat more than just every once in a while, which is why I love copycat recipes!
One of my favorite dishes at the moment is Olive Garden’s Chicken Gnocchi Soup, so of course I had to create a similar recipe that I could make at home. It tastes just like it, except maybe even a little better…because homemade is always better! Well, except for the part where you clean up your own dishes.

How to Make Chicken Gnocchi Soup
Soups are one of my favorite things to make because they’re kind of hard to mess up. Just throw everything in the pot and cook! Plus they always come out soooo delicious.
- Start by heating up butter in a dutch oven or stock pot.
- Add in the onions and carrots and saute until onions become translucent. Then stir in the garlic and cook a couple more minutes.
- Pour in the chicken broth and seasonings, then add the chicken breast and bring to a boil.
- When the soup starts to boil, place the lid on the pot and reduce heat, and let it simmer for 8-10 minutes.
- While chicken cooks: Melt butter in a small saucepan and whisk in the flour. Then whisk in the half and half, and let it simmer until it thickens. Stir in the parmesan cheese, remove from heat, then whisk in the heavy cream.
- Once the chicken is fully cooked through, remove it from the pot and set it aside.
- Add the gnocchi into the broth mixture and let it simmer until the gnocchi rises to the top (that’s how you know it’s cooked through).
- Pour the cream mixture from the saucepan into the rest of the soup.
- Cube the chicken breast then add it into the soup, along with the chopped spinach, and stir until heated.
I just love how creamy and delicious this chicken gnocchi soup recipe turns out. It’s really easy to store leftovers too, either in the refrigerator for a few days, or the freezer for a few months!

Thanks for stopping by and sharing, Tara!
Delicious. It’s not a quick soup but it is very similar to the Olive Garden’s. This is a large pot of soup. I hope it freezes well.
LOVE to hear that!!
I made my own gnocchi just so I could try this recipe and omgeee it is delish! I skipped the roux step because I didn’t mind a thinner soup and instead added a good splash of Half & Half at the end. Soup bowls were topped with fresh grated parmesan and there were no leftovers :) I had bookmarked several Chicken Gnocchi Soup recipes but opted for this one because it went above and beyond the others especially in the seasoning department. I can gladly say that those other recipes are now in the recycle bin! Many thanks for sharing this great recipe.
Thanks, Rebecca! Glad you found a recipe that works for you!
