1smallyellow onion, finely chopped
1ribcelery, finely chopped
1cupheavy whipping cream
16ounce package potato gnocchi
2cupsfresh baby spinach
In a large heavy bottom pot, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat and brown chicken. Remove chicken with a slotted spoon onto a plate.
Add the remaining butter, onion, carrot, and celery and cook until tender (5-7 minute). Add the garlic and cook an additional 30 seconds.
Mix in the flour and spices and cook for 1 minute while continuously stirring. Gradually stir in the milk a little at a time until mixture is smooth and thins out. Add remaining milk, cream, and chicken bouillon. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until thickened (can coat the back of a spoon), stirring occasionally.
Add back the chicken along with the gnocchi, spinach, and Parmesan. Cover and simmer 4-6 minutes until spinach is wilted and gnocchi is cooked through.
