Chicken & Cauliflower Gnocchi Soup

This chicken and gnocchi soup is super easy and comforting. It comes together so quickly which makes it the ideal weeknight fall and winter dinner. Also, it makes for great leftovers which is always a huge bonus.

Healthy Chicken & Gnocchi Soup

The soup itself is also quick and simple. I just baked two chicken breasts and cut it into tiny pieces to throw into the soup. However, feel free to grab a rotisserie chicken and chop that up. It also has some diced onion, celery, shredded carrots, garlic, thyme, chicken stock, spinach and heavy cream.
