Rosemary Lemon Chicken Gnocchi

Ingredients
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 (16 oz) package potato gnocchi
  • 2 cups diced onion (about 1 whole onion)
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2-3 tablespoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 1¼ cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • juice + zest of 1 lemon (about 2-3 tablespoons juice)
  • 1 cup petite sweet peas, frozen
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
Instructions
  • Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces (about 1-inch cubes). Season generously with salt and pepper. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken in a single layer and cook for 5 minutes, until golden brown, flipping once halfway through. Remove the chicken to a plate. Add the gnocchi straight from the package into the skillet. Toast the gnocchi, stirring occasionally to toss, until gnocchi is toasted and golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove to the plate with the chicken.
  • In the same skillet, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are golden brown, about 5-7 minutes. Turn heat to low and add the garlic and rosemary. Stir to combine until garlic is fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  • Add the chicken broth, lemon juice, zest, and gnocchi and bring to a boil. Cover, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes until gnocchi is tender.
  • Stir in the peas, cream, parmesan cheese, and plenty of salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the chicken until heated through, about 2 minutes. Serve and garnish with extra parmesan cheese if desired. Enjoy!
