When the nights get colder, nothing will warm you up faster than a bowl of hot soup! Sure, you could open up a can from the store, but why not make a simple gnocchi chicken soup instead?

Rich, buttery broth that’s loaded with hearty vegetables and tender bites of poultry and potato dumplings is more than enough for a satisfying meal.

Chicken Gnocchi Soup Recipe Tips

  • Save some prep time. I love keeping portions of shredded meat in the freezer just for recipes like this. If you aren’t a fan of meal prep, grab a rotisserie bird from the store and use that instead!
  • Adjust the consistency. If you want it thicker, reduce the amount of broth or let it simmer longer. To make it thinner, simply add more broth.
  • Want it creamier? Replace ½ cup of the broth with an equal amount of milk or half and half.
  • Make it vegan. Use a plant-based butter and vegetable stock, then replace the chicken with more vegetables or omit it entirely. Canned chickpeas or cannellini beans would also make a great meat substitute.

Serving Suggestions

Pair this gnocchi chicken soup with some crusty bread or a simple green salad and call it a day! Top each bowl with some crushed crackers or a little grated Parmesan for extra flavor.

It would also be delicious with a grilled cheese sandwich - stick with classic cheddar or try a combo of two or three for gourmet flavor.

Kitchen Tools You Will Need

  • Dutch Oven - I love this set and use it all the time. It is perfect for roasts, and I especially love it for my one-pot meals.
  • A separate Small Pot for boiling the gnocchi, plus a Slotted Spoon to remove and drain them
  • Quality Knives and a big solid Cutting Board make prepping a breeze and are well worth the investment.
  • Ladle - A must for dishing up gnocchi chicken soup!

FAQ - Common Recipe Questions

Can I use broth instead of stock?

Yes - stock, broth, or bone broth are all acceptable options. You can even reconstitute chicken base or use vegetable stock if you prefer.

What’s the best way to store leftovers?

Once cooled, transfer leftovers to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Reheat on the stove until warmed through.

You can also freeze gnocchi soup for up to 3 months, then thaw it in the refrigerator before reheating. Leave room at the top of the container for the liquid to expand.

However, I wouldn’t recommend freezing it if you made it with milk. Dairy tends to separate when thawed and reheated, creating an unpleasant gritty texture.

Can I double this chicken gnocchi soup recipe?

Absolutely! Be sure your pot is large enough - at least 6 quarts - so there’s plenty of room for everything.

Enjoy!
