Crockpot Chicken Gnocchi Soup (Like Olive Garden’s But Better)

Posted March 23, 2021 by Prairie Wife -

Chicken Gnocchi Soup is one of the Cowkids’ favorite things to have at Olive Garden, and I have to agree…it’s tasty AND filling.

My Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup is a family fav too…and on a whim, I decided to try and tweak it a little bit and see if I could come up with a Crockpot version of Olive Garden’s Chicken Gnocchi soup.

What I came up with was quick and easy to make, and a HUGE hit with the Cowkids, so it was a no-brainer that I needed to share the recipe with you on the blog.

Also, I can see big huge flakes of snow falling out my window right now, and that always puts me in the mood for Crockpot soup.

NOTE: You can find bags of pre-made Gnocchi in the pasta aisle at your local grocery store.
