The Honey Pot

A honey bee will search up to 5 miles for food, which is about 4.9 miles longer than I'm willing to look.

Chicken Gnocchi

This is a great comfort food recipe that is slightly modified from the original which I found on Budget Bytes. The original recipe includes spinach and I also changed the steps to better suit how I cook.


  • 500g chicken
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2-6 garlic cloves, depending on preference
  • 500g gnocchi, but you could just as well use any other pasta for an equally tasty dish
  • 250ml vegetable stock/broth
  • 125ml double cream (heavy cream in the US I think?)
  • 50g freshly grated parmesan
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Dice up the onion and chicken. Crush the garlic.
  2. Add all the spices to a bowl and add the chicken then mix well.
  3. In a large pot add a splash of oil and heat. Once hot add the onion and garlic and cook until brown.
  4. Add the chicken and cook until browned on all sides.
  5. Remove the mixture from the pot then add a tablespoon of butter (or oil) and add the gnocchi. If you're using another type of pasta I'd probably skip this step.
  6. Add the veg stock/broth and cover the pan. If using gnocchi you only need to do this a couple minutes to rehydrate it. Any other pasta type, probably 10-15 minutes.
  7. Add the heavy cream and stir through until hot but not boiling.
  8. Add the grated parmesan and stir through until fully melted
  9. Add the chicken, onion & garlic back to the pan and stir through until reheated.
