Ingredients
  • 1 lb chicken breast, cut into 1” chunks
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • ½ cup cold water
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 medium chopped onion
  • 1 pint sliced mushrooms
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 10 oz frozen classic mixed vegetables (peas, carrots, green beans, corn)
  • ½ tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 4 cups fat free milk
  • 2 Tbsp sherry
  • 1 package gnocchi
Instructions
  1. Create a slurry by combining ½ cup cold water with flour in a medium bowl and whisk until well blended. Set aside.
  2. Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a non-stick skillet. Add garlic and sauté for about a minute. Add chicken breast chunks and salt, pepper and a pinch of thyme. Sauté for about minutes or until no longer pink. Set aside while preparing soup.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large stock pot. Add chopped celery and onions and sauté until soft and translucent. Add mushrooms and sauté until soft.
  4. Add chicken stock, thyme, pepper, salt and frozen vegetables and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer on a low heat until vegetables are soft, about 20 minutes.
  5. Add 2 Tbsp sherry, milk and slowly whisk in slurry, stirring well. Slowly return to boil. Then, add chicken and gnocchi. Cook until gnocchi floats, about 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Serve with warm drop biscuits.
