Gnocchi are yummy Italian soft dough dumplings that are like little fluffy pillows! Our Slow Cooker Gnocchi Stew pairs gnocchi with shredded chicken, plenty of vegetables for a boost of vitamins and nutrients, Italian herbs, and coconut milk for a creamy texture. Best of all, it’s made in the slow cooker so you can leave it to cook all day and come home to a satisfying meal.

This stew is hearty and filling—perfect for dinner on a chilly night. Pair with a nice loaf of crusty bread and a tossed salad for a well-rounded meal!
