Description

Eat Beautifully.

All slow cookers are a little different, heat-wise. If your slow cooker runs very hot, or you are halving the recipe, you may want to cook on low to medium heat. *This recipe makes a very large pot of soup. For a smaller slow cooker, halve the recipe.

Ingredients

  • 6 Chicken Thighs, bone in, skin removed
  • 10 C. Chicken Broth
  • 1 t. Pepper
  • 1 T. Coarse Salt
  • 1 large Onion, chopped
  • 4 Carrots, grated
  • 5 stalks Celery, Chopped
  • 2 T. Fresh Thyme
  • 1 T. Garlic, minced
  • 1 stick(8 T. or ½ C.) Butter
  • ¾ C. Flour
  • 1 lb. Gnocchi(dried or fresh)
  • 6 oz. fresh Spinach

Directions

  • Place the chicken, chicken broth, pepper, and salt in a slow cooker.
  • Cook on high for 4 hours.
  • Remove the chicken from the broth and set aside to cool.
  • Run the broth through a fine mesh sieve and pour back into the slow cooker set to high. Add the onion, carrots, celery, thyme, and garlic. Let cook for 1 hour.
  • After 1 hour, make a roux by melting the butter in a small saute pan. When the butter is melted, add the flour and stir to make a thick paste(will be very thick). Cook the roux for 30 seconds, stirring constantly as to not let it brown.
  • Add the roux to the slow cooker. Whisk it into the liquid until there are no lumps left. Soup will thicken slightly and continue to thicken as it cooks.
  • Shred the cooled chicken(make sure to remove all bones and debris first) and add it to the soup.
  • Add the gnocchi to the soup and let cook for another 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Taste the soup and add salt and pepper to taste, if desired.
  • Just before serving, add the spinach. It will seem very bulky at first, but as you fold it into the soup it will wilt significantly.
  • Serves: Serves 10-12
