4 servings


  • 1 lb. potato gnocchi
  • 1 lb. plain Dad’s Chicken Breasts
  • Salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 8 oz. sliced mushrooms
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup unsalted chicken broth
  • ⅓ cup half and half
  • ¼ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 (5 oz.) bag baby spinach, chopped
  • ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • Chopped parsley for garnish, optional


  1. Boil gnocchi according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water; set aside.
  2. Season chicken with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. Heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until browned and cooked through, about 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  3. Add remaining 1 Tbsp. olive oil to pan. Stir in mushrooms and garlic and cook until mushrooms are tender, about 1-2 minutes.
  4. Add cooked gnocchi, chicken, chicken broth, half and half and crushed red pepper flakes to pan. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally. Stir in spinach and cook until wilted, about 1 minute. Sprinkle with Parmesan and enjoy.


Make it a one-pan meal by browning the gnocchi in a pan until crispy instead of boiling them! Browned gnocchi have a wonderful texture to them.
