Chicken Gnocci Soup

This is a copycat recipe of the soup they serve at Olive Garden-with a few changes of mine.
1/3 c olive oil or butter
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 cup onion,diced
1 lb chicken, diced
1/3 cup flour
1/2 carrot, shredded
1 stalk celery
1/2 cup fresh chopped spinach
3.5 cups whole milk
2.5 cups half-and-half
3 cups chicken broth
17.6 oz gnocci
Melt butter or heat oil in a soup pot. Add chicken and cook thoroughly. Mix in flour and stir until well cooked into chicken. Remove chicken from pot and set aside. Saute garlic, onion, carrot, celery in the same pot the chicken was in and cook until tender. Put chicken back into pot. Add milk, cream, broth. Cook about 10 minutes, adding gnocci the last 3-4 minutes.
