    Loved it. Always a favourite. I often make a vegetarian version. I made it for Christmas and it was very popular.

    Will definitely make again. I used some half n half with the milk, but other than that followed the recipe. It was very good.

    Made this tonight for my family and one of my daughters ate all her food! Easily the best meal I’ve made so far; it was easy, fast and very delicious. Added yellow onions and green onions, spot on!

    Husband loved it! I thought it was a little heavy on the garlic. I used 2% milk instead of whole. No problem:-) I didn't have rotisserie chicken so cooked up 1 lb. of chicken breast in the skillet with some bacon rendering. Extra flavor! Delicious!

    Simple and good. Not too heavy, easy to make. I substituted the mushrooms with yellow bell peppers and it worked just fine.

    We make this almost every other week. As long as you prep accordingly its a easy meal for during the week for those with kids. We also cut some of the fat by using 2% milk and it still comes out creamy and delicious!

    This was great. I didn't get a roasted chicken, just browned up three chicken in the pan, removed out and browned the mushrooms and gnocchi. Then finished the recipe on the stovetop.

    Absolutely delicious. Flavors blended together so well. We marinated chicken in Italian dressing and grilled it outside before topping gnocchi -- just our personal twist. Everyone loved this dish!

    This is one of my favorite dishes to make. I add baby bell peppers and onions. Sometimes I don't use chicken at all and sub with sausage and add fresh tomatoes. My fav are the grape tomatoes to add.

    The family really liked this. I made it on the stovetop instead of putting it in the oven and used chicken breasts. I cooked the cubed chicken with the spices and garlic, removed it, added the gnocchi and some chicken broth, cooked that till done, then dumped the cooked chicken back in and the mushrooms and spinach, then added some half and half and parm cheese. We will make this again.

    Very good! I substituted heavy whipping cream for the milk to give it a little more richness. I used frozen gnocchi and it worked fine. I added extra Parmesan cheese too. Can't wait to have this again!

    I could not stop eating it! I made a few adjustments based on the things I had, such as canned mushrooms, cooked chicken tenderloins, softened shopped onion to start the roux. Also I skipped the baking step, as my pan is not oven-safe. But it was still delish and definitely on of the best Gnocci dishes I ever had! This will become a staple in our family for sure!

    Wonderful creamy recipe, so would make it again! Took maybe 45 min. One pot meal is so worth it due to lack of dishes.

    What an divine and easy dish to make! I cooked the gnocchi before I added it to the sauce, as we use rice milk instead of normal milk, because of our dairy allergy. Was an absolute hit and will definitely be making it again.

    I also used shredded chicken breast I had. Modified the recipe some what. Added 1/2 onion diced. First browned together onion, mushrooms and garlic. Then removed to a bowl. Didn't have fresh gnocchi but used frozen pierogies chopped in three pieces. Made the rest of the recipe per directions. Husband and myself thought it was great.

    I didn't use rotisserie chicken, I cooked up some breasts and shredded them. Cooked it in an electric frying pan and covered, gently simmering for the last 15 minutes. It was delicious! Have cooked it a few times now because the family loves it.
