Tried this for a second time today and it it didnt disappoint. Double batch made 2 meals and 7 leftovers. Such flavour. Other than using thighs in place of shredded chook, and baby spinach, I stuck to the recipe, upping the garlic and mixing a very strong vegeta chicken stock. I can see my self making this so many times…..

This is stunning, such intense flavour. 100 stars if I could. I used thigh fillets cut into 8, and baby spinach. I have frozen left overs and I already want to do it again. Absolutely brilliant recipe Hannah, thank you !!

Husband really liked this. Wasn’t 100% sold on the gnocchi but made another batch with noodles which was lovely. Also used shredded roast chicken instead of chicken breast as I needed to use it up. Delish!
