Quick Chicken Gnocchi Soup

If you Like the chicken gnocchi soup at Olive Garden, give mine a try!  It's quick to make;  you can chop the veggies and garlic while you're roasting the chicken tenders in the oven and boiling your gnocchi!

I have an easy method for making chicken gnocchi soup.  I made it for dinner tonight, and decided to share it with you this week.  Here's a picture of the soup we had for dinner in one of my snazzy orange Fire King mugs!

  • First, roast 5 or 6 frozen chicken tenderloins in the oven (according to directions on the bag).  
  • While those are in the oven, bring a pan of salted water to a boil;  add a package of vacuum-packed gnocchi to the boil until the dumplings float to the top.  
  • Remove dumplings to a bowl.  
  • Chop two stalks of celery, 1/2 C onion, 1/2 C carrots and 3 cloves minced garlic into a microwaveable container;  sprinkle with a little water and cook on high for about 2 minutes (until soft). 
  • After you've drained the water off of the dumplings, use that same pan to blend 1 large can of Campbell's Cream of Chicken Soup and 1 large can of Swanson's Chicken Broth until smooth.  
  • Dump in the microwaved vegetables, chopped roasted chicken tenderloins (canned chicken if you want to make this a really quick recipe, but the flavor is not as good) and a little white sauce (flour and water shaken in a sealed jar)  until thickened.
  • Simmer until all is hot through.
