This Copycat Olive Garden Chicken Gnocchi Soup recipe is so easy, it can be made in 30 minutes. My favorite at Olive Garden is getting the unlimited soup and salad. Usually when I get this Chicken Gnocchi Soup, I’m full after one bowl since it is so hearty.
Let’s face it, no one wants to scroll forever trying to find the actual recipe. That’s why, here at Dish Ditty, we are moving towards having all the recipes right at the top. If we have any blogger like content, where we discuss the ‘how did we come up with this recipe’, or ‘my family loves this’, or any of the typical food blogger content, it will be after the actual recipe.
So, in that vain, this soup is so incredibly addicting. I made it for a Christmas party we were hosting in 2022, the first one since Covid. I did a souper party, where I made a bunch of soups. I’ve done souper parties before since they are super fun and it’s easy to get different dietary needs by making different soups.
But back to this recipe, the Chicken Gnocchi Soup. I love this soup at the Olive Garden. I found a copycat recipe from The Slow Roasted Italian (this is a great recipe site that I love). As usual, I didn’t follow the recipe exactly, but made some modifications of my own. I’m sure their version is amazing too, but I have my ways.
A few things that I did was to use the Better than Bouillon Chicken to add more depth of flavor. It really adds a stronger punch of chicken flavor. Also, I was cheap and used the Dollar Tree gnocchi! For this soup, I found it worked perfectly, and saved me lots of $$.
The best part about this recipe is that if you already have cooked chicken, it really only takes about 30 minutes for dinner to be ready. And it’s a whole meal in a bowl.
