Instant Pot Creamy Chicken Gnocchi

Today‚Äôs recipe was inspired by this crappy weather and a very appealing Olive Garden commercial! ūü§§

CREAMY CHICKEN GNOCCHI is one of my favorite things about Olive Garden! But, with this weather I barely felt like leaving the couch, let alone driving 45-minutes both-ways for a bowl of soup. 

So, like always, I busted out my Instant Pot and got creative! Thanks to Olive Garden listing their ingredients online, this was a very easy soup to replicate.

Plus, I personally though it tasted better. There’s just something about the Instant Pot and the way it brings out the true flavors. 

This soup is just so rich and creamy and guaranteed to have you coming back for more!

So, what are you waiting for?! JUST COOK IT ALREADY!

  3. Stir in the rosemary, basil, thyme, salt, pepper, and the garlic.

  4. Turn off ‚Äúsaut√©‚ÄĚ mode. Add in chicken broth. Deglaze your pot to avoid burn error!¬†

  5. Add in the chicken breasts. Close and seal lid. Cook on manual HIGH-pressure for 9-minutes. Allow for a 10-minute Natural Pressure Release and Quick Release any remamining steam.
