Looking for a new take on classic chicken noodle soup? This Creamy Chicken Gnocchi Soup might just be your new favorite dish. The secret is in the gnocchi. These little potato dumplings add a luxurious texture to the soup that will have you coming back for more.

The soup is packed with flavor. Tender shreds of chicken, sweet carrots, savory shallots, and leafy spinach all swim in a rich broth that’s been blended with cream of celery soup and real cream. A sprinkle of Italian herbs adds depth and complexity to the flavors, making each spoonful an explosion of taste.

The gnocchi themselves are little pillows of goodness. They’re soft and tender, yet chewy at the same time, making them the perfect addition to this hearty soup. And because they cook so quickly, you can have this soup on the table in no time, even on the busiest of weeknights.

How should I store my Creamy Chicken Gnocchi Soup?

This Chicken Gnocchi Soup should be cooled to room temperature and then stored in the fridge in an airtight container. It can be kept in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Be sure to reheat it completely before serving. You can also freeze this soup for 4-6 months, however gnocchi tend to lose its texture when frozen if it has been cooked.

What changes can I make to this soup recipe?

Use fresh vegetables. You can chop up carrots, celery, and shallots and even add other fresh vegetables if you like, like pumpkin, peas, green beans, or corn. You can also substitute kale for the spinach if you like, but it takes longer to cook, so I recommend adding it to the soup with the water, cream of celery, and chicken to brown.

You can make this a vegetarian soup by omitting the chicken or substituting tofu. If you want to substitute another type of meat, you can. Or you can add some texture by garnishing the soup with some crumbled bacon.

If you don’t have gnocchi you can replace it with another type of noodle such as egg noodles, shells or macaroni. Be sure to cook as directed on box or until al dente. Most noodles will take longer to cook than gnocchi.
