’s Olive Garden Chicken Gnocchi Soup


*You can find dried gnocchi in the pasta section of most grocery stores; some stores also sell fresh or frozen gnocchi. You may want to cut your gnocchi in half before cooking if it is large, or purchase the mini size if available.

    Delicious! I've always wondered why mine tastes so different from Olive Garden though. My chicken always tastes a lot more dry than theirs. Finally decided to try chicken thighs instead of breasts... waaaay better

    Awesome! It needed a little extra salt and I added about a 1/2 tsp of herb de provence. Next time add the chicken when adding the gnocchi so that it's not over cooked.

    Didn’t find this interesting at all. Not enough flavor. However, the leftovers absorbed most of the liquid, and I baked it with a topping of shredded Parmesan. That was pretty good.

    I've made this twice and it turned out great both times. I've used the large frozen gnocchi because I haven't had much luck finding the smaller ones. They're just as good!

    Mine turned out a little thick, like Alfredo sauce consistency. And it could have been more chicken-flavored. I think I will use more chicken broth than half & half next time.

    My husband is a fan of Olive Garden’s chicken and gnocchi soup and asked me to make this. It’s not quite the same as the restaurant, but similar and very tasty.

    Made this tonight and it was delicious. I used frozen gnocchi. Will probably try dried next time or at least cooking the frozen longer. My daughters thought they were a little to firm for them. I have never had Olive Gardens version, but my daughters liked it even better than theirs.

    Absolutely delicious!!!! Hands down better than the Olive Garden. Used half heavy cream and half and half. Added little more spinach and some chicken bullion base.

    Good soup but the seasoning that you add at the end takes the taste away from the Olive Garden original. I'm going to look for a better copy cat.

    I doubled the amount of a roux. I would probably steam the carrots and celery in advance, and then add them to the soup. But besides that, it tasted amazing!
