  • 2 tablespoon olive oil or oil reserved from sun dried tomatoes
  • 1 pound chicken breasts skinless and boneless, cut into small pieces
  • ½ teaspoon salt or to taste
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper or to taste
  • ¼ cup shallots chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup sun dried tomatoes drained and chopped, keep the oil
  • 1 cup half and half cream
  • 2 cups chicken broth low sodium
  • 2 pounds gnocchi
  • 2 cups fresh spinach chopped
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese shredded
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese shredded


  • Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. (see notes).
  • Add the chicken, season with salt and pepper and cook until it starts to brown, should take 2 to 3 minutes. 
  • Add the shallots, garlic and sun dried tomatoes. Stir and cook for 1 to 2 minuets.
  • Add the half and half cream, chicken broth and stir. Bring to a simmer then stir in the uncooked gnocchi. Cook until gnocchi are tender, and sauce has thickened, should take about 4 to 5 minutes, they should also absorb and thicken the sauce. 
  • Add spinach and fold into the mixture until wilted. Taste for seasoning and adjust with salt and pepper if needed.
  • Stir in the cheeses, cheese should melt almost immediately.



  1. I reserved the oil from the sun dried tomatoes and used that instead of the olive oil for some extra flavor, but olive oil can be used as well.
  2. Half and half can be found near the milk and cream in the dairy section of your local grocery store. Half and half is a blend of equal parts whole milk and light cream. It averages 10 to 12% of fat.
