Servings 4


  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 shallots peeled and sliced into rings
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 lb chicken
  • 1 bunch kale washed and torn into bite sized pieces
  • 1 lb gnocchi
  • cup chicken broth
  • ½ cup heavy cream


  • Salt and pepper 1 pound of chicken and either grill or bake in the oven until done. (350 degrees for 23-26 minutes in the oven.) We usually do this step ahead by adding a couple of extra chicken breasts to the grill over the weekend.
  • Either dice or pull chicken apart in bite size pieces. Cook gnocchi in a large pot of salted boiling water for 2 minutes or until they float. (You can also do this ahead and store the gnocchi in the refrigerator until you need it.)
  • In a large saute pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. When oil is shimmering but not smoking, add shallots and cook 2 minutes until soft. Add minced garlic and cook for 1 minute stirring often to prevent burning.
  • Add gnocchi and let it toast for a a few minutes in the pan, stirring often to prevent sticking. Add chicken and kale then stir to combine.
  • Add chicken stock and cream, mix well and let it simmer until it thickens. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm and enjoy!
