This easy one pan chicken bacon gnocchi recipe is the ultimate comfort food! You will love the pillowy gnocchi, crispy bacon, and tender chicken in a creamy garlic sauce.
What you’ll need
Bacon – the crispy, savory quality of the bacon complements the creamy sauce
Chicken – we’re using chicken breasts cut into bite-sized pieces
Garlic – a touch of garlic adds even more flavor
Chicken broth – for moisture and the base of the sauce
Heavy cream – it adds that luxurious quality
Italian seasoning – this blend of flavorful dried herbs comes in one jar, making it a convenient way to add herby flavor to sauces
Gnocchi – I buy the shelf stable gnocchi that’s found in the dry pasta aisle
Parmesan – it’s always best to grate your own

This is an overview with step-by-step photos. Full ingredients & instructions are in the recipe card below.
In a skillet, fry the bacon until crispy. Remove it from the pan, leaving behind a little bit of the fat. Add the diced chicken to the pan, and cook until it’s white on the outside, stirring often. Add the garlic, and give it a stir.
Reduce the heat and add the broth, cream, Italian seasoning, and gnocchi to the pan along with returning the bacon. Stir, cover, and cook for a few minutes. Remove the lid, then cook until the sauce thickens up. Add the parm, season with salt & pepper, and enjoy.
