As working mother all you want on a busy weekday is a quick and easy dish! I love recipes that you can easily make in a short time but are really GOOD!
This Chicken Gnocchi Skillet recipe of mine is very simple and sooo delicious! The pesto white wine sauce gives it that extra nudge! You can use any kind of inexpensive white wine for cooking and also any type of pesto. You could also make your own pesto if you want to make this dish extravagant!
Instead of chicken, you may want to try this recipe with pork or turkey instead. Every type of meat tastes good with the Gnocchis and white wine sauce.
