  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 2 sticks celery chopped
  • 3 medium carrots sliced or chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 7 ounces cremini mushrooms sliced
  • 4 cups chicken broth or stock
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 dashes Italian seasoning
  • 2 cups cooked chicken I used rotisserie
  • 1 pound potato gnocchi
  • 1 cup heavy/whipping cream
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach (packed)


  • Add the oil and butter to a large soup pot over medium-high heat.
  • Add the onion, celery, and carrot to the pot. Sauté for 8-10 minutes with the lid slightly ajar. Stir once or twice while sautéing. 
  • Add the garlic and mushrooms to the pot and cook for a few minutes.
  • Stir in the chicken broth, water, Italian seasoning, chicken, and gnocchi. Increase the heat to high and bring the soup to a boil. 
  • Reduce the heat to a gentle simmer and cook for 10 minutes. 
  • Stir in the cream and spinach. Cook for a few more minutes until the spinach is wilted and the soup is heated through. Season with salt & pepper as needed and serve.


  • You can use milk or half-and-half instead of cream if you prefer.
  • The longer you cook/leave the soup to sit, the more it'll thicken up because the gnocchi will release starch.
