In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat; sauté chicken with garlic, oregano, salt and pepper for 6 to 8 min until chicken is browned and no longer pink inside. Add cream to pan; stir to coat chicken, then turn off heat.
Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling salted water, cook gnocchi and beans for about 2 min. Add peas and continue to cook until gnocchi starts to float, about 1 more min. Drain. Return gnocchi mixture to pot. Pour in cream mixture; set over medium heat. Cook 1 to 2 min until gnocchi is well coated. Stir in Feta and mint.
A handful of beans, cut in half, measure about 1 cup (250 mL).
Instead of green beans and peas, sauté zucchini and red pepper strips with chicken.
Instead of chicken, try shrimp.
