Homemade gnocchi with chicken breast and red chili jam


For a long time I wanted to make gnocchi. I saw a recipe at the TV and it looked so easy, so I thought I can manage to do gnocchi alone. 3 ingredients and you have an amazing dish on your table. I already add them to my “Easy to do” list.

Ingredients for gnocchi:

  • 2 potatoes
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 egg


In a pot add water and salt and let it boil. Peel the potatoes and add them in the pot. Cook them for 15 minutes. They should be firm and tender. Drain, cool and mash them with a fork.

In a bowl combine the egg, flour and mash potatoes. Knead until you have a ball. Shape small portions of the dough into long “snakes” and then cut them in small 2cm pieces.

Bring a large pot to boil. Drop in the gnocchi and cook them for 3-5 minutes or until they have risen to the top. Drain and then serve them.

You can serve them with sauce, meat or pesto.

I wanted to eat them with green wild garlic pesto but this is gone be only in spring, so I decided to eat them with chicken breast.

In a pan cook the chicken breast after you season it with salt and pepper. After the chicken breast is done add the gnocchi on top and cook for another 2-3 minutes.

I served it with my Red chili jam and fresh green onion. Enjoy!
