- In a large pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the onion, carrots, and celery and sauté until tender, about 6 minutes.
- Add the garlic and chicken and toss to incorporate, then pour in the chicken stock and season with the salt, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, and thyme. Bring to a boil and cook for about 10 minutes, until fragrant.
- Stir in the half-and-half and gnocchi and cook for 2 minutes, until beginning to thicken slightly.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and water.
- Reduce the heat to medium-low. Stir in the cornstarch slurry and cook for another 3 minutes, until the soup has thickened. Stir in the spinach, then remove the pot from the heat.
