Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1 small yellow onion diced
  • 1 small shallot diced
  • 4 large carrots peeled and diced
  • 2 celery stalks thinly sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • ¼ c. all-purpose flour
  • 5 c. chicken broth
  • 2 c. whole milk
  • 1 tsp. kosher sea salt
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp. thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. paprika
  • 2 c. shredded or cubed rotisserie chicken
  • 4 ounces chopped fresh spinach
  • 16 oz. packaged or refrigerated gnocchi

Instructions

  • In a large stockpot set over medium heat, add butter. Add onion, shallot, carrot, and celery, sauté for 5 minutes or until the vegetables are soft. Add the garlic and sauté for an additional 2 minutes, or until fragrant, stirring occasionally to prevent it from burning.
  • Whisk in the flour and cook for 1 minute. Gradually add in the chicken broth, then milk, whisk to combine. Add salt, Italian seasoning, thyme, pepper, and paprika. Continue cooking until the mixture reaches a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Add the rotisserie chicken and spinach and gnocchi. Stir continuously for 1 minute, then simmer for 4 additional minutes. Remove from heat and serve.
