  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter divided
  • 1 cup white onion chopped
  • ½ cup carrots chopped
  • ¾ cup celery thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups cooked chicken diced or shredded
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg grated
  • 4 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 16 ounces potato gnocchi
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese finely grated
  • 1 teaspoon coarse Kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup spinach coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest


  • Heat the butter in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots, celery and garlic, cooking for 4-5 minutes or until slightly soft, but still a little taunt.
  • Add the flour, stirring until it forms a paste to make a roux.
  • Add the chicken, Italian seasoning, nutmeg and chicken broth. Bring to a low simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a separate large skillet over medium high heat. Add potato gnocchi, browning on all sides. Remove and set aside.

  • When hot, add spinach, browned gnocchi and lemon zest and serve immediately.
