Today’s recipe is actually a redo. Originally this was shared on my blog November 8th, 2013. Almost exactly a year ago. I love this recipe so much that I felt it needed a makeover. Not only the recipe, but the photos as well. 

Like I mentioned already. I love this creamy chicken gnocchi soup. My husband loves this soup and anyone I have ever shared it with loves it. It’s a crowd pleaser, for sure!

 Chicken Gnocchi Soup

If you have never heard of gnocchi pasta before it is basically a potato dumpling. I usually find mine in the same aisle as the other pastas. 

Delallo Pasta

This soup is very easy to change. You can even add more or less of an ingredient and you won’t mess this soup up. You may need to adjust the liquid measurements if you do. It’s also important to keep some extra chicken broth or heavy whipping cream on hand in case this starts to get too thick. That’s also why it’s important to not cook for too long. I try not to keep it heating on the stove for longer than an hour and when I reheat the leftovers I pour a little bit of chicken broth over the top just to help liquefy it a bit.

I hope you love this soup as much as we do. I make this several times during fall and winter. It actually is one of my winter “go to” meals, and if I already have cooked chicken then it’s even easier.

  8. 4 cups chicken broth
  9. 4 cups heavy whipping cream

Born and raised in Southern Illinois. My journey has brought me to Louisville, Ky where I live with my architect husband, Jason and our little dog, Fonzie. We enjoy exploring our city and eating good food. I am happy to be able to share great recipes with you and snap some photos along the way. I sincerely hope you enjoy exploring my blog as much as I have enjoyed creating it!


  1. I totally didn’t know you had a blog until I saw it on your Pinterest! This is awesome. Love the blog and I definitely love this soup! So tasty. 🙂

      Thanks, Amanda! 🙂 You are my first real comment on here!! The blog is something that has been in the works for a while and I am slowly starting to publicize it.

      • WooHoo!! 🙂 I know what you mean…I’m doing the same thing with my etsy shop. I should promote it more than I do, just want to make sure I’m doing it the right way before I start. 🙂

  2. This is my favorite soup to order at Olive Garden. Can’t wait to make it homemade!

    • Tiffany says:

      I enjoy ordering it at Olive Garden as well. I think you’ll like the homemade version. 🙂

  3. Susan says:

    This soup looks so delicious and fairly easy to make. I am looking forward to making it -thank you!

  4. We love chicken gnocchi soup and yours looks delicious. It’s the only thing I ever order at Olive Garden and I make a copycat recipe occasionally. Yours is a bit different from mine so I’m eager to give it a try. Gnocchi is a bit hard to find, though, here in the town in which I live. Would you be willing to share this recipe post and any of your other great ones at our Making Monday link party? We would love it and think our readers will, too. Thanks. Have a great week. http://www.abrightandbeautifullife.com/making-monday-13-2/

      Thanks for stopping by, Lori. I would love to join your Monday link party! I have noticed that Gnocchi is a little easier to find in fall and winter. I have seen it at Kroger, Wal Mart and Aldi. I hope that helps. 🙂

  12. Jill Komarek says:

    The list of ingredients don’t indicate how much gnocchi to use.

    • Thanks for letting me know. Half to a full package is plenty. Sometimes the full package is too much. Just experiment the first time you make it and see how much is enough for you. 🙂
