Tuesday Cook Off ~ Baked Gnocchi with Chicken

This week on Tuesday Cook Off; My Baby Pajamas would like to share with you all a great, one skillet, and delicious recipe.  Today’s feature recipe is Baked Gnocchi with Chicken.   I just love gnocchi.  Being Italian and growing up eating a lot of pasta, my favorite was always gnocchi.   So when I came across this recipe in my new favorite magazine “Food Network Magazine”, I just had to try it.  This recipe was real simple to pull together because you use package gnocchi and a rotisserie chicken.   Everything else you probably have in your pantry if you cook a lot.

When doing a one-skillet recipe I like to measure everything out ahead of time.   This way it’s all right at your finger tips when you need it.   It was a snap to pull together and my husband absolutely loved this recipe!!  He too is a big fan of gnocchi.

A great thing about one-skillet recipes is easy clean up!   Only one skillet to clean.   You cook it all on the stove first and then put the skillet right in the oven.  Love that!!

Recipe from: Food Network

Ingredients : 

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
8 ounces white mushrooms, sliced (about 4 cups)
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 rotisserie chicken, skin removed, meat shredded (about 2 cups)
1 17.5-ounce package potato gnocchi
1 1/2 cups loosely packed baby spinach
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese (about 1 ounce)

Directions: 

Position a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 425 degrees F. Heat the olive oil in a deep ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate and wipe out the skillet.

Melt the butter in the skillet over medium heat; add the flour and cook, whisking, 3 minutes. Whisk in the milk and chicken broth until smooth; simmer, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Whisk in 1/2 teaspoon salt and the nutmeg.

Add the chicken, mushrooms, gnocchi and spinach to the sauce and stir until coated and the spinach wilts. Sprinkle with the parmesan, transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until bubbling, about 20 minutes. Turn on the broiler; broil until lightly browned on top, about 3 more minutes.
