"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

Chicken and Gnocchi
Chicken and Gnocchi
(Pollo e Gnocchi)
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
2 (10 to 12-ounce) packages gnocchi
12 large white mushrooms, sliced
4 celery stalks from the heart, sliced very thinly
1 large onion, chopped
1 cup diced carrots
3 cups chicken stock
5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
5 tablespoons butter
Salt and pepper
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup fresh basil
Handful of fresh parsley leaves
Handful of pine nuts, toasted
2 handfuls freshly grated Parmigiano cheese
Zest of 1 lemon
Prepare a large pot of boiling water.

Heat a deep skillet with 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat.

Add chicken and cook until lightly browned on all sides.

Remove from the skillet to a plate and return the skillet to the heat.

Add another tablespoon of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of butter to the skillet.

When the butter is melted, add the mushrooms, carrots, celery and onion.

Season with salt and pepper.

Cook for 5 minutes until the vegetables are softened.

Sprinkle in the flour and cook for 2 minutes.

Whisk in 2 and 1/2 cups of chicken stock, add the chicken and any accumulated juices back into the pan.

Cook until the sauce has thickened and the chicken has cooked through, about 5-7 minutes.

Place the remaining 1/2 cup of chicken stock in a food processor.

Add the basil, parsley, pine nuts and Parmigiano cheese.

Season with salt and pepper.

Turn on the food processor and stream in the remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oil.

In a skillet over medium heat, melt the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter.

Add in the lemon zest.

Salt the boiling water and add the gnocchi.

Cook until they float to the surface.

Drain and add to the skillet with the lemon butter.

Cook in the butter until lightly golden at the edges, 2-3 minutes.

Remove the chicken from the heat and stir in the pesto sauce.

Serve in shallow bowls topped with the gnocchi. Serves 4-6.
