Finely chop the brown onion. Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Roughly chop the baby spinach leaves. Cut the zucchini into 1cm chunks. Cut the chicken breast into 2cm chunks.
In a large frying pan, heat a good drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the panko breadcrumbs (see ingredients list) and cook, stirring, until golden brown, 3 minutes. Add 1/2 the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Transfer to a medium bowl.
Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a generous drizzle of olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the gnocchi in a single layer and fry, tossing occasionally, until golden, 6-8 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Transfer to a medium bowl and set aside.
TIP: If the gnocchi doesn't fit in a single layer, fry in batches so it becomes golden! Add more olive oil if the gnocchi sticks to the pan.
Return the frying pan to a high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the chicken and onion and cook, tossing occasionally, until browned, 3-4 minutes. Add the zucchini and cook until softened and the chicken is cooked through, 2-3 minutes. Add the remaining garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute.
Reduce the heat to medium and add the light cooking cream, crumbled chicken stock (1 cube for 2 people / 2 cubes for 4 people) and grated Parmesan cheese (reserve some for garnish!). Stir to combine. Season with pepper. Return the gnocchi to the pan, add the baby spinach and stir until wilted.
TIP: If the sauce is a little thick for your liking, add a splash of water to loosen!
Divide the creamy chicken gnocchi between bowls and top with the garlic pangrattato and reserved Parmesan cheese.
