One-Pot Gnocchi With Chicken And Spinach Recipe

A delicious mid-week meal, this comforting dish can be cooked up in no time at all. Turn it into a veggie version, by replacing the chicken stock with a vegetable based one, leave out the chicken and add a few more veggies. Serve with a crisp green salad on the side.

  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 350ml whole milk
  • 250ml chicken stock
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 3 cooked chicken fillets, chopped
  • 250g mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 x 500g pack of gnocchi
  • 4 handfuls of baby spinach leaves
  • 40g Parmesan, grated

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 220˚C/200˚C fan/gas mark 7 and place a large, oven-proof pan over a  medium heat.
  2. Melt the butter in the pan, then add the flour and garlic and stir vigorously for 2-3 minutes until the mixture is smooth.
  3. Gradually stir in the milk and chicken stock until completely incorporated. Simmer for five minutes until slightly thickened, stirring constantly. Add salt and black pepper to taste.
