For the salsa verde, finely chop all ingredients. Season with olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper.

Boil potatoes in salted water until soft, strain. After steaming, press through potato ricer. Let cool slightly, then knead with remaining ingredients to form a dough. Let rest for 30 minutes.

Then put all the gnocchi in the water, boil once and let them stand for 10 minutes. Drain well and toss in a pan with a little butter.

Arrange the chicken saltimbocca with gnocchi and salsa verde on plates and serve.
