  • 1 lb Boneless Chicken Breast, cut into bize size pieces
  • 4 Slices of Bacon
  • 1/2 Red Onion, chopped
  • 6 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 3 large Carrots, chopped
  • 3 Celery Stalks, chopped
  • 1 Poblano Pepper, chopped
  • 2 Jalapeno Peppers, chopped Optional
  • 5 cups Chicken Broth
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Oregano
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Rosemary
  • 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 2 tsp Italian Seasoning or Herbs de Provence
  • 1 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Red Crushed Peppers
  • 1 1/2 cup Cashew Cream
  • 1 cup Kale
  • 2 Packages Frozen Gnocchi (I use TJ's Cauliflower Gnocchi)
  • Salt and Pepper, as desired


  • In a large Dutch Oven pot over medium heat, add 1-2 tbsp olive oil then add 1/2 red onion, chopped. Sauté the onions for about a minute, then add the minced garlic. Sauté the garlic and onions for about 3-5 minutes to caramelize the onions.
  • Add the sliced chicken breast and pan sear for about 2-3 minutes. Season with cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, Italian seasoning, red crushed peppers, salt, and pepper.
  • Add sliced bacon and sauté for about 1-2 minutes. Next add the chopped celery, poblano pepper, jalapeño peppers, and carrots. Mix all the ingredients together and pour in 4 cups of chicken broth and add the fresh oregano and rosemary.
  • Cover the pot and reduce the heat to a low heat and simmer for 2-3 hours, or until the vegetables are soft and chicken is tender/ making sure to stir occasionally.
  • Next, add the cashew cream, gnocchi, and kale. Cover the pot and simmer on low for 30-35 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir the soup before serving and garnish with chopped green onion. Enjoy!
