Braised Chicken with Gnocchi and Arugula Pesto
One pot meals are always a big hit with families and this one will be popular. Gnocchi are little potato dumplings that help thicken the sauce and add a wonderful creaminess to the chicken. Add a dollop of the pesto when serving for a fresh peppery bite.
