SALSA CHICKEN GNOCCI

I am always trialling new recipes and on the first attempt, this was a hit with both James and I. Gluten free Gnocci makes a nice change for the main meal, it has a soft texture almost resembling pasta and mash but has a crisp exterior.

I used a salsa sauce to give this Italian dish a Mexican twist.
