Slow Cooker Chicken & Gnocchi Soup

"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.


<p>I am not a very interesting person. I like to cook, I like to eat, and I love my husband Rick and my son Hugh. Thats pretty much it when it comes to me, that and an obsession for cats, especially our 2, Bunny &amp; Bindy Sue. We live in Lake Dallas, TX, and have been married since August 16th, 2003. Hugh was born October 19th, 2009. Rick and I met on the internet in September 2001, and when we were married I moved from NJ where I grew up, to the big, scary, strange city of Dallas. There are things I like about Dallas and things I don't. I am definitely homesick for some real NY style pizza.</p>
