Ingredients
 

  • 500 - 700 g. Chicken tenderloins or thigh fillets , cut into cube size.
  • 1 diced onion.
  • 4-6 rashers bacon , cut into small pieces
  • 2 Tablespoons minced garlic ( or 3 cloves fresh)
  • 1-2 teaspoons chilli ( depends on your taste or can be left out)
  • 1/2 cup chopped Sundried tomatoes
  • 1/2 punnet cherry tomatoes ( slice in half)
  • Feta cheese
  • Large bottle cream
  • 1 packet baby spinach

Potato Gnocchi:

  • 3 medium to large potatoes , l
  • 1 egg,
  • 1 tablespoon of Parmesan cheese ( fresh or powdered)
  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour + extra

Instructions
 

  • Fry off the garlic and onion. When the onion is clear add the bacon and chilli and lightly fry. Transfer to your SC.
  • Add the chicken ,cherry tomatoes, Sundried tomatoes and 1/2 cup of the cream.
  • Cook on low for approx 3 hours until the chicken is soft.
  • Add the rest of the cream and then the spinach on top and then some small cubes of feta.
  • Cook a further 1 hour on low or until the spinach has wilted .
  • Mix altogether and serve over the gnocchi . ( the gnocchi can be added to the SC when you add the spinach to cook in the juice but I've found doing this you have to add more cream, so I cook it separate )
  • To make the Potato Gnocchi:
  • 3 medium to large potatoes , leave skin on and boil until soft.
  • When cool , peel off the skin and mash , add 1 egg and a tablespoon of Parmesan cheese ( fresh or powdered)
  • Place approx 1 1/2 cups plain flour on a board and gradually knead in the potato mix. Add more flour until the dough is just manageable . The trick to good gnocchi is to just add enough flour to roll out into sausage shapes , dough should be slightly sticky. Cut small pillow shapes and place on a lightly floured board.
  • Add to pot of boiling salted water and cook for one to two mins past the time they float to the top.

  1. I made this (just the chicken; not the gnocchi) the other night as I had chicken and feta I had to use up. It was super delicious..! We served on penne pasta. Even fussy Mr 9 and 7 smashed their dinners. Love this will definitely make again 👌
