Cuisine: Italian
Servings: 4


  • 1 lb potato gnocchi
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups chopped rotisserie chicken
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes
  • 3-4 tbsp quality Pesto sauce
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • salt & pepper, to taste


  • Cook the gnocchi according to the package directions. Drain immediately, and rinse with cold water until cold to stop them cooking and prevent sticking.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the oil. Stir in the garlic, cooking just until fragrant. Stir in the tomatoes, cooking for another 2-3 minutes, just until slightly wilted.
  • Add the broth, stirring to evenly incorporate. Stir in the pesto until incorporated. Reduce the heat to low, and let the mixture simmer until the sauce has begun to thicken.
  • Stir in the gnocchi & the chicken, tossing to evenly combine and coat. Salt & pepper, to taste, just before serving.
