Crockpot Creamy Garlic Chicken and Gnocchi. A cozier weeknight, slow cooker meal made with white wine, creamy Dijon mustard, fresh herbs, parmesan cheese, and store-bought cauliflower or potato gnocchi. Plus, I added in shredded brussels sprouts for veggies and color. This slow-cooked chicken dinner is a hearty and delicious meal to come home to at the end of a busy day. But what’s even better is just how easy it is to prepare!
We’re just one week out from the start of fall!! Part of me is sad that time is flying by, but most of me just feels excited. Excited for the season ahead. Excited to lean into the cozier things in life. And excited about our upcoming launch and fall travel.
So many things to really be looking forward to! And course, fall recipes are at the top of my list! I have so many fun new ideas!
But with life being so busy for us all, I think we can agree that simplifying our cooking and baking is the way to go.
This means crockpot recipes! And today I have a good one.
Just as you would think, this really is simple. Begin by placing the chicken in the crockpot and rubbing it with olive oil and fresh herbs. I used a heartier mix of herbs for this to really help make the dish warming. Sage is my favorite herb to use in September.
Now the garlic, the key to this recipe. You’ll want to use a whole head but peel the cloves and leave them whole. The cloves will soften and caramelize as the chicken cooks adding so much flavor to the sauce.
I also love to use a Parmesan rind. Try it, you’ll love it! Just toss it in with the garlic. It adds a really nice flavor throughout the creamy sauce. It also pairs so wonderfully with the white wine, herbs, and mustard. Certainly a very French vibe.
At this point, just cover the crockpot and cook. You can speed things up by cooking on high, or go low and slow. Alternatively, you can use the instant pot, but I do prefer the crockpot method, I gave stovetop directions too.
When the chicken has cooked, pull it out and set it on a small sheet pan.
For the gnocchi, it’s pretty easy, sometimes I use cauliflower, sometimes potato. Just depends on my mood!
Mix it in with some water and cook in the crockpot for a few minutes on high.
Finish the chicken by adding some butter on top. Then add milk and Parmesan to the sauce too.
And well that’s it. This certainly could not be easier, or more delicious!
Once you plate this, I like to add fresh basil on top and some crusty bread on the side. The bread is perfect for scooping up all that extra sauce.

I really wanted to love this recipe, but it was a total failure using full fat coconut milk, which is what I used because I had everything else on hand. Maybe it would have been better with heavy cream.
Thanks for trying this recipe and sharing your feedback, so sorry to hear it didn’t turn out with the coconut cream! Let me know if there is anything else that I can help with! xT
Hi. I’ve tried a couple other of your gnocchi recipes and they have all been delicious!!!
I’m interested in trying this recipe… but wondering if I could use chopped asparagus (or any other vegetable) in place of brussel sprouts? Or would it be better to just omit the veggie?
Totally, asparagus would be a great option here! Let me know if you give this recipe a try, I hope you love it! xx
Fresh gnocchi or dried gnocchi? I see not frozen (sorry Janet).
For this recipe you will want to use fresh gnocchi:) Please let me know if you have any other questions, I hope this turns out well for you! xT
This is my second HBH recipe and I really wish I would have read the comments ahead of time. Just the finishing part in the crock pot with the gnocchi and brussel sprouts didn’t work for me. The gnocchi was frozen, my mistake, and kind of turned to mush, and the sprouts didn’t really soften. By the time I got the crock pot to warm the frozen gnocchi, the chicken was overdone. Sometimes it goes like that. I’ll try another.
Thanks for giving this recipe a try and sharing your feedback. Sorry about the frozen gnocchi!! xx
I decided to make this stovetop version, but it doesn’t really address what to do with the garlic cloves that are peeled? Besides rubbing the chicken with it before, searing what then? Besides rubbing the chicken with it before, searing what then
Thanks so much for trying this recipe! You can just put the garlic into the pot and it will infuse the dish with flavors. I hope this helps! xT
