Ingredients
  • 2 chicken breasts, raw and diced (or cooked and shredded if it's pre-made)
  • pepper, as desired
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3/4 cup celery, chopped
  • 3/4 cup sweet onion, chopped
  • 2 1/3 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 3 cups half and half
  • 1 cup carrots, shredded
  • 1 pkg gnocchi
  • 1 3/4 cup spinach, chopped but not too small
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
Instructions
  1. Using an Instant Pot, saute the diced chicken until cooked. 

  2. Add the pepper, thyme, butter, celery and onions. Continue to saute until the onions are translucent then add the chicken broth and shredded carrots.

  3. Using a microwave, warm up the half and half until lukewarm, and add to the Instant Pot {adding this while fridge-cold might cause it to curdle in the soup}

  4. Add the gnocchi and mix well, still on saute. Allow to boil until gnocchi is cooked. 

  5. Add the spinach and cheese, and mix until spinach starts to wilt. Turn off the Instant Pot - serve hot and enjoy!
