Gnocchi with Chicken & Spinach in a Blue Cheese Sauce

Gnocchi with Chicken & Spinach in a Blue Cheese Sauce

Sometimes life catches up on you and you really feel like you don’t want to cook. Even the hardened cook like me has days like this. This is where I find Gnocchi fab! I love the texture and the fact that it’s cooked in around 3 minutes which brings this entire meal in in under the 20 minute mark.

A favourite of ours is the Lidl ‘Italiamo Range’ fresh Gnocchi and I make to sure I stock up when it’s in. Spinach and Blue Cheese are a great match and compliment the Chicken and Cream so well, the Nutmeg plays its part in bringing the whole lot together.



  • 2/3 large chicken fillets finely sliced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 150g blue cheese
  • 250 ml carton cream
  • Approx 150g baby spinach
  • 50g Parmesan
  • Approx 1/3 of a clove of grated fresh nutmeg or a good pinch of ground nutmeg.
  • 1 packet of Lidl ‘Italiamo’ potato gnocchi (cooked as per packet instructions)
  • 1tbsp oil
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Heat a frying over a medium to high heat, add the oil and onion, cook until golden stirring occasionally. Remove from the pan and place on a plate.
  2. Season the chicken very well. Allow the heat to come back into the frying pan before adding the chicken and cooking through.
  3. Add the onions back into the pan with the Spinach allowing the Spinach to cook down while taking care to stir all the time.
  4. Pour the cream into the frying pan and add all of the blue cheese, salt and pepper and the grated parmesan.
  5. Allow it to simmer and reduce down a little. Add the cooked gnocchi to the pan and stir though to combine.
  6. Check the seasoning, top with a little extra parmesan and enjoy!
