In a large heavy-bottomed stock pot set over medium-low heat, add the butter. Once the butter has melted, add the garlic, onions, carrots and celery and cook, stirring, until the onions are translucent, 3 to 5 minutes.
Add the chicken broth, raw chicken, poultry seasoning and dried thyme, stirring to combine. Bring the soup to a boil then reduce it to a simmer, cover it, and simmer it for 15 minutes.
Add the gnocchi to the pot and continue simmering, uncovered, an additional 3 minutes or until the gnocchi is al dente and floats. Taste and season the soup with salt and pepper then serve.
