  • Yield: 12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 large carrots peeled and grated
  • 4 stalk(s) celery chopped
  • 6 clove(s) garlic peeled and chopped
  • 2-3 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • 1 rotisserie chicken
  • 1 cup(s) reserved broth from bottom of chicken container
  • 7 cup(s) water
  • 8 chicken bullion cubes
  • 1 (16 ounce) package potato gnocchi
  • 4 cup(s) half-and-half
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) spinach chopped
  • 1 teaspoon(s) thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon(s) sugar
  • 1/4 cup(s) cold water
  • 5 tablespoon(s) cornstarch
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoon(s) butter

Preparation

Get your onion and garlic peeled and chopped, your carrots peeled and grated and your celery chopped.

Heat a large pot up over medium high heat. Pour 2-3 tablespoons of Olive Oil into it.

When the oil is hot toss your chopped veggies into the pan. Cook them over medium high heat, stirring occasionally for about 5-8 minutes or until the onions are translucent.

. Take the lovely rotisserie chicken out of the package and set it on a plate

Pour the broth that is left in the bottom of the chicken package into a large measuring cup. You should have about 1 cup of broth from the pan.

Pull the skin off of the chicken, and take the meat off of the bones. Chop it up with a sharp knife.

When your veggies are done cooking pour the broth from the chicken and 7 cups of hot water into the pot. Add 8 chicken bullion cubes and give it a nice stir.

Add the chopped chicken

and bring the soup to a boil.

Open up the package of Gnocchi and pour it into the pot. Let the soup come to a boil again and allow the gnocchi to cook for about 3-4 minutes. The gnocchi will be cooked through when they float to the top of the broth. It should happen pretty fast.

Chop yourself about 1 1/2 cups of spinach and toss it into the pot.

Pour in 4 cups of Half and Half, 1 teaspoon dried thyme, 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, 1 tablespoon sugar and 2 tablespoons of butter. Stir it around a bit and let it come to a boil.

12. In a small bowl combine 1/4 C cold water and 5 tablespoons of cornstarch. Mix it well and pour it into the soup pot.

13. Bring the soup to a boil, while you stir. It will thicken as the soup reaches a boil.

14. Taste it and season it to your liking with salt and pepper.

Enjoy!
