Tonight chicken teams up with supple gnocchi for a tasty Italian dinner the whole family will enjoy. A side of simple but elegant garlic green peas turns this into the perfect weeknight comfort food.
Produced in a facility that processes milk, sesame, eggs, fish, shellfish, crustaceans, mustard, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, soybean and sulphites.
Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry all produce. Peel, then mince the garlic. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season chicken all over with the Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4ppl), then the chicken. Sear, until chicken is golden-brown, 2-3 min per side. Transfer chicken to a parchment-lined baking sheet and sprinkle with the Parmesan. Bake in the middle of the oven, until chicken is cooked through, 10-12 min.**
While chicken bakes, re-heat the large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil, then gnocchi. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, 7-8 min. (NOTE: Cook 1 pkg gnocchi at a time for 4 ppl, using 1 tbsp oil for each batch!)
While the gnocchi cook, heat a small pot over medium heat. When hot, add 2 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then peas, garlic and 2 tbsp water (dbl for 4ppl). Cook, stirring occasionally, until peas soften, 4-5 min. Season with salt and pepper.
Add marinara sauce, cooked peas, 1 tbsp butter and 1/4 cup water (dbl both for 4ppl) to the pan with the gnocchi. Cook, stirring until coated, 1-2 min. Remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the sour cream and season with salt and pepper.
Slice chicken, then divide chicken and gnocchi between plates.
