Chicken Gnocchi Soup-if you like chicken noodle soup, you will love this twist on the classic. It is easy to make and the gnocchi is delicious and comforting!
If you are in the mood for an easy and comforting meal, you have come to the right place. This Chicken Gnocchi Soup will warm you right up. It is great for a chilly day or when you are feeling under the weather. You can have it on the table in 30 minutes…and if you are not feeling well, you have my permission to eat it in bed, just be careful if you top the soup with crackers. You might get some cracker crumbs in your bed:)
Chicken noodle soup is classic comfort food, but Josh likes to mix things up by using gnocchi instead. He says it’s even better than the classic! My boys LOVE this soup, it is one of their favorite meals. They like it even better than the noodle version.
Josh uses DeLallo’s potato gnocchi. It is the BEST! And did you know they make mini potato gnocchi? They are so stinking cute and perfect for soup!
Serve the soup with crackers, crusty bread, or homemade biscuits and you have the perfect cozy and comforting meal! And you might want to double the recipe so you can take some to a friend or neighbor who is in need. It is always nice to share the love! I am sure anyone would appreciate this satisfying soup!
Chicken Gnocchi Soup is a staple for fall and winter! Make a big pot and enjoy!

Love this… Definitely making this soon. Perfect timing. Love your recipes and your blog!!!
What a tasty looking soup! Pass me a bowl 🙂
Kaylin is a HUGE chicken noodle soup fan. I will have to make this to see if she likes the gnocchi spin!
Have you tried freezing this soup? Just wondering how the gnocchi held up (or didn’t) when frozen, thawed, reheated? This looks wonderful!!! Thank you for sharing.
Looks sooooo good!!
Perfect comfort food!
I had no idea DeLallo made gnocchi! I’m gonna have to go get some to try! Great recipe as usual, Maria!
Sounds sooo good! Where in the grocery store do you find the gnocchi?
You can find gnocchi in the pasta aisle, by the dried pasta.
Yum! I definitely want to try this recipe!
Gnocchi in soup sounds like the perfect addition!
I love all of your recipes that I’ve tried – and your website and updates. However, I don’t like gnocchi (I’m even half-Italian)! Do you think I could substitute tortellini or radiatori or another type of pasta? I just find that gnocchi leaves me feeling like I ate a doughy football! Thanks for any advice you can offer.
Yes, you can use tortellini or another pasta! It will still be good!
Thank you – now, if the hot weather in Southern California would just relent from this heat and give us some soup weather – this’ll be my first one!
ah yes! the gnocchi makes this classic so much more filling, definitely a winter staple!!
What a fun switch on a classic! Looks hearty and delicious!
No where in the recipe do I see the note for removal of the thyme springs or bay leaves. am I supposed to keep them in while serving the soup or remove them?
HI there! This looks amazing, but my hubby and I are currently on Weight Watchers. Are you able to tell me the actual serving size for this recipe? How many cups equal one serving? Thank you!
I don’t know the nutritional information. Sorry!
Tried your gnocchi soup, loved it.
Great dupe for Olive Garden’s chicken and gnocchi soup! Looks so comforting and delish!
I have made this soup – WOW – it is very tasty and very easy and quick to make. Never thought before to add fresh thyme & bay leaf to a chicken broth soup. I put a bit of spin on this by coarsely chopping the parsley and adding it to the soup at the same time as adding the gnocchi – about 1/4 cup of parsley.
Haven’t tried freezing yet (because the soup goes so fast !!). Making this again tomorrow for lunch, along with left-over elk roast & moose/elk meatloaf sandwiches. I will be feeding 3 hungry guys for lunch tomorrow !
I made this recipe last night on a rainy day and it was so delicious. I just got the recipe for your noodle soup. Thank you so much.
Just finished making this. So delicious!!! I added Serrano chilies for a little kick.
I love that your recipe doesn’t add heavy cream or corn starch . Going to win mom of year award today for making this for my son (his 2 favorite ingredients are gnocchi & chicken). Thanks!
Absolutely delicious! I made this exactly as written (although I did cheat with a rotisserie chicken) and it was hands-down the best chicken soup I’ve ever made/had! Thanks for the recipe.
Delicious, healthy and easy! This is a go-to soup for me through the year!
Love all your recipes!! Thank you!
Holy crap! I was so ready to be disappointed in this quick and easy soup! It’s fantastic! I did filet and sear the chicken, then add some broth to the pan drippings to add to the soup for more flavor! I also salted and peppered the chicken before I seared it to build flavor. I added freshly grated Parmesan as well at the end and some fresh spinach a couple minutes before taking it off the heat. Yum! My husband has Covid and wanted chicken soup! He approved! I’ll be making this on the regular!
Cooking this as we speak. Looks and smells absolutely fantastic
wonderful recipe ! was hoping to find one with the Gnocchi and WITHOUT the spinach and half & half. this was it ! want to bring some in containers for my brother in law who is undergoing Chemo … but still needs some comfort food. they grew up on Potato Dumplings (the size of a baseball) and I loved this version of the mini dumplings. STILL WONDERING …. can I freeze this in containers ??
Have you ever made this in an instant pot? How long would you cook it?
I made this soup during the Blizzard of 2022. I simmered the vegetables for about 30 minutes so the carrots would be tender. After adding the gnocchi, which was cooked perfectly, I left it on the stovetop to keep warm. The gnocchi became very gummy. I will use rice next time
