Creamy Chicken & Gnocchi Dumplings

1 cup celery

2 russet potatoes, diced

1 small onion, diced

1 lb. pkg. gnocchi

2 chicken breasts, shredded

2 cups chicken broth

2 bay leaves

1 tsp. dried basil

1 tsp. dried oregano

1 tsp. Badia complete seasoning, or garlic powder

1 tsp. Kosher salt

½ cup heavy cream

 (cornstarch slurry if needed for thickening)

Preheat your large skillet, over medium heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil. Saute the diced celery, carrots, onion and potato. Stir occasionally. About 4-5 minutes. Then add the gnocchi. Brown on all sides, stirring occasionally, about 2-3 more minutes.

Next,  add the shredded chicken and chicken broth. Bring to a simmer. Then add the seasonings, heating for another 2-3 minutes. Then add the heavy cream, reduce heat to low. Simmer for 2-3 more minutes. If you need to thicken the sauce, make a cornstarch slurry, and add while stirring to thicken.

Happy dinnertime! XO
