Awesome lactose cream? I didn’t think it would work, so my son and I would just suffer. Will try it next week. Thanks

I absolutely love this recipe with thigh fillets diced. The intense roasted garlic gives it a real garlic bang and I choose to skip the cornflour as i dont like what it does to taste of any meal. An absolute winner with my family and anyone who has tasted it. Try it and you will love it!!

Sure Trish 🙂

We normally have simple soups like pumpkin, found this recipe yesterday & made it-OMG Yum, hubby had it for breakfast, definitely will be making this again, so simple & extremely tasty. We have never used gnocchi & next time we will brown them to see how they turn out

What the hell is a gnocchi? Sounds like a sneeze? Legit question.

This was delicious! I bought store bough gnocchi to add to it but i’d recommend adding it half way through the cook as it took along time to soften

I read that as adding uncooked as it still cooks for over half an hour after you add it 🙂

Do I add uncooked gnocchi or do I boil it prior to adding it?

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!
