Chicken Gnocchi Soup is a hardy and heart healthy soup with loads of flavor. If you do not make your own gnocchi, refer to my instructions for a super simple and quick gnocchi recipe that freezes well and is ready to use any time you want to make soup or need a quick snack. This recipe is not intended to be a copycat of a menu item from a popular Italian restaurant, it's simply intended to be a good, flavorful soup with naturally good ingredients, that is easy to make whenever you have left over chicken meat.

If using a slow cooker, cook on high 4 hours, then on low an additional 2 hours. Mix Cream, broth and flour together until smooth. Pour into the soup mixture and cook another hour to thicken. Add the gnocchi in the last half hour.
Serving Suggestion: Serve hot with garlic bread sticks or onion rolls slathered with butter and fresh garden salad if desired.
