Chicken & Bacon Gnocchi Bake

This is a reboot of a recipe we found in a cookbook and tried a long time ago, we knew we could improve on it and I think it’s much better than the original


  1. 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts diced
  2. 16 oz package of gnocchi
  3. 2 cups mozzarella
  4. 6 slices bacon
  5. 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  6. 6 oz tomato paste
  7. 1/4 cup heavy cream
  8. 2 cloves garlic minced
  9. 1 tbsp paprika
  10. 1 tsp sugar


  1. Put a pot of salted water on to boil for the gnocchi. Preheat oven to 425°.

  2. In a large skillet cook bacon untill crisp and remove. Drain most of the bacon grease and put the garlic and paprika in, cook for 30 seconds and then add the chicken.

  3. Cook chicken through. Add crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, and sugar and simmer for 5 min.

  4. Meanwhile when the water boils add the gnocchi, when the gnocchi floats remove it with a slotted spoon and add to skillet.

  5. Remove from heat, add cream, stir together and put into a baking dish. Cover with mozzarella and bake for 10-15 mins or until cheese is golden.

  6. Sprinkle with parmesan and serve.
