  • Summary

    A cream based soup with tender, moist bites of chicken, bacon crumbles, bright green leafy kale and dumpling-like gnocchi. This soup is a 10 out of 10 at my house. If I start a soup restaurant and can serve only 3 soups this will be one of them.

    Ingredients

    • 1-2 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breasts (I used about 1 1/2 lbs which I felt was perfect)
    • 1 large onion, diced
    • 2 medium carrots, grated or finely diced
    • 3 celery stalks, grated or finely diced
    • 3 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 tsp dried oregano
    • 2 tsp dried basil
    • 1 tsp dried parsley
    • 2 tsp olive oil
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 1 tsp black pepper
    • 1 tsp kosher salt
    • 5 cups chicken broth (or you can use water and bouillon)
    • 3 Tbsp cornstarch
    • 2 cups half and half
    • 3 oz bacon bits
    • 1-2 lbs gnocchi (I used one pound)
    • 4 kale leaves, roughly chopped (as shown in video above)
    • 1/2 cup Parmesan
