Slow Cooker Chicken & Gnocchi Soup

READY IN: 8hrs 15mins
Recipe by TexasKelly

This is from a Betty Crocker e-mail I received. Normally I don't like anything made with heavy cream soups & frozen goods, but this is really convenient to throw together. We also like more salt & seasonings so we always adjust every recipe to our own tastes.

I made this and my family loves it! We don't care for garlic, so I substituted cream of chicken with herb for the cream of mushroom and garlic soup. I also do not brown my meat before I throw it into the crockpot. It is a nice soup for a cold raining afternoon.
