Chicken Avocado Gnocchi

This is an easy to make weeknight meal that you can prepare and make in around 30 minutes.  This is another great chicken & gnocchi pasta dish that will please the family.

The chicken is initially browned in the pan before progressively making the rich creamy parmesan sauce that adds a silky smooth texture to the dish.  Add the gnocchi towards the end to be coated in the sauce, before finally topping with avocado and garnishing with a little basil.  A really great pasta dish.

We like to leave the avocado as a topping to this dish rather than stirring through, however finish off to your preference.  There is rarely any left-overs in our house, however they will store easily in the refrigerator for a couple of days if you do have any.
