garlic chicken and spinach gnocchi

6 Mar


as usual i had no plan for dinner….  but i did have a package of chicken tenderloins that could be defrosted fairly quickly….   this recipe was eh…  i hate mushy gnocchi.. i should have never boiled them.. should have stuck them straight in the pan with the chicken to crisp up..  the whole thing was pretty bland over all — so for all you bland food lovers  this is for you 🙂
