Gnocchi With Chicken, Pesto And Fresh Mozzarella


  • Servings: 4
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 skinless, boneless chicken breast half - cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chicken broth
  • 1 (8 ounce) jar prepared pesto
  • 1 (12 ounce) package potato gnocchi
  • 4 ounces small fresh mozzarella balls


    Preparation Time: 10 mins Cook Time: 25 mins Ready Time: 35 mins

  • heat olive oil in a saucepan. season chicken pieces with salt and pepper; cook and stir in the hot oil until no longer pink in the middle, 7 to 10 minutes. remove chicken to a bowl using a slotted spoon, retaining drippings in the pan.
  • pour chicken broth into the saucepan. bring broth to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon; continue cooking until the broth reduces in volume by about half, 7 to 10 minutes. return cooked chicken to the saucepan. stir pesto through the chicken mixture; remove from heat.
  • bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a rolling boil. cook gnocchi at a boil until they float to the top, about 3 minutes. remove gnocchi from the water to a large bowl using a slotted spoon, retaining water in the pot.
  • place the saucepan with the chicken and pesto over the boiling water; cook and stir over the boiling water until warmed completely, about 5 minutes. pour chicken and pesto mixture over the gnocchi; add mozzarella and stir until evenly mixed.
