I love proving that you really can make anything in the slow cooker! This recipe for  Slow Cooker Chicken Gnocchi Soup (Olive Garden Copycat) is no exception.  Skip the wait at that Italian chain restaurant and slow cook this at home instead. ….YUMMY!

  1. In a stovetop safe slow cooker, heat butter and oil over medium-high.  Add the onion, celery and garlic and saute.
  2. When the onion is translucent, sprinkle in the flour and whisk to form a roux.
  3. Stir and cook a minute. Then stir in chicken broth and seasonings.
  4. Add the carrots and chicken to the pot. Place the slow cooker insert into the slow cooker base.
  5. Cover. Cook on Low for 5 hours.
  6. Stir in the spinach and half & half. Let cook on Low for 15-30 minutes while you cook gnocchi in another pot.
  7. Prepare the gnocchi according to package directions.
  8. Stir in the gnocchi right before serving the soup.

Happy Crocking!

I can’t wait to try this because my copy cat recipe I found somewhere on the net was a disappointment. One question… what point do you transfer to the crock pot? Between steps #4 & #5???

I love this soup at Olive Garden, and I’m excited to try this recipe out at home! Roughly how many servings does it make?

Do you think it would be ok to use frozen gnocchi?

How do you cook the gnocci? Heated, fried or boiled? I have a package of it, but never cooked it before. Thanks

I’m a little confused. Step 7 says stir often. Does that mean you have to stir soup often throughout the crocking time or???

Thank you. I’m working all day tomorrow so I think I’m going to make the soup today and just reheat for my get together tomorrow evening. Do you think that would be o.k. to do??

When do I put the garlic in, when it says add spices?
