Ingredients

  • 8 oz boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 1 carrots diced
  • 1 celery stalk diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 pkg (900 ml) sodium-reduced chicken stock

Rustic Spinach Gremolada:
  • 1 cup spinach leaf chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

Method

Cut chicken into cubes. In large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; fry chicken, onion, carrot, celery, garlic, oregano, salt, pepper and bay leaf, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes.

Add chicken stock and 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) water; bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium; cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Add gnocchi; simmer, uncovered, until gnocchi float to top and are firm to the touch, about 5 minutes. Discard bay leaf.

Rustic Spinach Gremolada: Meanwhile, in bowl, combine spinach, lemon rind and juice, oil and garlic. Sprinkle onto bowls of soup.
