Baked Gnocchi with Chicken

I had never made gnocchi before but this looked so delicious I decided to test my luck! It was amazing, delicious, and surprisingly easy! I don’t think my family had faith it would turn out but, victoriously, the gnocchi came through – It is on our regular dinner rotation now!


1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
8 ounces white mushrooms, sliced (about 4 cups)
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 rotisserie chicken, skin removed, meat shredded (about 2 cups)
1 17 .5-ounce package potato gnocchi
1 1/2 cups loosely packed baby spinach
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese (about 1 ounce)


Position a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 425 degrees F.

Heat the olive oil in a deep skillet over medium-high heat.

Add the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 4 minutes.

Transfer to a plate and wipe out the skillet.

Melt the butter in the skillet over medium heat; add the flour and cook, whisking, 3 minutes.

Whisk in the milk and chicken broth until smooth; simmer, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.

Whisk in 1/2 teaspoon salt and the nutmeg.

Add the chicken, mushrooms, gnocchi and spinach to the sauce and stir until coated and the spinach wilts.

Transfer to a baking dish and sprinkle with the parmesan

Bake until bubbling – about 20 minutes.

Turn on the broiler; broil until lightly browned on top -about 3 more minutes.
