Be sure to taste and adjust with salt/pepper before serving. It may need more depending on the saltiness of your broth.

You can use something other than evaporated milk, but I found that evaporated milk has the creaminess of half and half or heavy whipping cream without actually needing to use up all my good half and half in the soup. :)

The leftovers do soak up a lot of the moisture, so you might need to add more evaporated milk depending on how soupy you want it and/or how long you'll be keeping it around.

Slow Cooker Crock Pot

Ingredients

1 lb
boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 c
onions, celery & carrots total
1-2 tsp
basil
1-2 tsp
italian seasoning
1 tsp
salt
4 c
chicken broth
2 Tbsp
cornstarch
2 Tbsp
water
24 oz
evaporated milk
2 lb
potato gnocchi
6 slice
bacon
2-3 clove
garlic
5 oz
fresh spinach

Step-By-Step

1Place the chicken, mirepoix, basil, Italian seasoning, poultry seasoning, salt, and broth in a crockpot or slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 6-8 hours. Shred the chicken directly in the crockpot.
2Add the cornstarch mixture, evaporated milk, and gnocchi. Stir and replace cover.
3Cut the bacon into small pieces and fry until crispy. Drain on paper towels and wipe most of the bacon grease out of the pan, leaving just a little bit for the spinach/garlic. Add the garlic and saute for one minute. Add the spinach and stir until wilted. Remove from heat. Add the bacon and spinach to the crockpot. Stir to combine.
4Add any additional liquid as needed (I added about a cup of water) and season again with salt and pepper as needed.
