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.

How to Make Crockpot Chicken Gnocchi Soup Author: Pinch of Yum

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.
