I made it on a whim on snapchat a few months ago and I was so obsessed I decided it needed a place on the blog. It’s a ground chicken mixture that’s flavored the same way you would season a chicken parmesan. Add to that some perfectly boiled gnocchi (which are like little pillows of heaven) on top and finish it off tons of cheese and herbs because obviously love a burrata moment, and that’s about it. It’s magical to say the least and I am 1923801298312% confident that you’re going to love it.

Chicken Parmesan Gnocchi Bake

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces plain gnocchi
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 2-3 cups store-bought marinara sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 ½ cups shredded mozzarella
  • ½ cup shredded parmesan
  • 1 ball fresh burrata
  • Sprigs fresh basil or oregano, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  2. Add the gnocchi to the boiling water and cook according to the package directions; drain, reserving ¼ cup of the cooking liquid.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large nonstick cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the ground chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and the onions are golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  4. Add the gnocchi, reserved cooking liquid, marinara sauce and red pepper flakes to the skillet with the chicken mixture and stir to combine. Add the parmesan and stir.
  5. Sprinkle with the mozzarella. Bake on the top oven rack until hot and bubbling and the cheese turns golden, about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes. Add more burrata on top because more is more.
  6. Garnish with fresh herbs and serve.

  1. You’re original baked gnocchi recipe is one of my favorite things EVER, so I can’t wait to try this chicken parmesan version. Absolutely delicious I’m sure!

  2. Is the burrata added after removing from oven? It wasn’t clear since it says “maybe we add more burrata”. I’m making this tonight. Looks amazing so far.

  3. I made this tonight! So yummy! I put two chicken breast in the crockpot. Then used it shredded in the dish once I was ready to put it together for dinner. Turned out amazing, such a hit!

  4. I’ve made this 2 times in 2 weeks and my family loves it. I do add some red wine to the chicken as it’s browning for an extra kick. This is a new family favorite. Keep up the Yum Gaby!!
