"I've found a lot of recipes for Buffalo Chicken Soup but none of them seemed just right. After tailoring elements from all the recipes I found into the perfect one, I came up with this. This soup is creamy and smooth with a hint of spice from the buffalo sauce. Serve it up with a dollop of sour cream and some mozzarella sprinkled on top." — Keiko

cubed cooked chicken
buffalo wing sauce, or more to taste
1 1/2 cups
shredded Cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste
This was excellent. I made a few tweaks that I think contributed to the success. In addition to the onion and celery, I sauteed two hatch chiles (could use anaheim peppers) to give a little heat / flavor. I used 2% milk instead of half-and-half -- there is enough fat content already, and the flour creates all the thickness necessary. I then used 3 cups of chicken stock instead of the 1/3 diluted ratio suggested, which reduces the amount of salt needed but adds a lot of flavor. I used two large roast chicken breasts for the chicken. For the hot sauce, Frank's is a must for authenticity, though it is not particularly hot, so 1/2 cup was about right for me. I would also advise that you wait until the soup is essentially 100% done before adding hte cheese, and then add it in small batches so that it melts in evenly. All in all an excellent soup and one I will make again.
If you like wings, this is a good recipe. I grew tired of it quickly, and found it needed more "chunks of something else" in there to keep it interesting.
My husband and I loved this soup. I forgot to buy celery, but didn't miss it. I used leftover chicken from the Spicy Rapid Roast Chicken from this sight, which I HIGHLY RECOMMEND! It was easy and outstanding. I got two great meals from a $4 chicken. If you like buffalo wings, you'll really like this soup. Try it with a salad and the dressing you usually like on your wings--ranch or blue cheese. Enjoy!
simply Awesome! My family love it!
Yummy. Needed a little garlic powder, but that's it. Used 2 cans low sodium chicken broth in lieu of boullion/water and then a bit of boullion granules for extra chicken flavor. Used leftover Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken from this site. Added a bit more buffalo sauce too. Yum Yum Yum. if you're a buffalo lover -- this is a great way to go!
This recipe was a big hit! I made it on a whim after a search for what to do with some leftover chicken I had. It tastes like slightly spicy cream of chicken soup. The only changes I made were to boil my (bone in, skinless) chicken breasts and then use the strained boiling water instead of using plain water and a bouillon cube. Looking forward to the leftovers for lunch today!
When my husband said, "this actually really does taste like a buffalo chicken wings" I knew we had a 5 star recipe. I wanted to add carrots (but mine were gone bad) because I think that will only add to the complete buffalo chicken wing experience, so I definitely would add a carrot or 2 next time. Also, top the soup with a little crumbled blue cheese for even more authenticity. Other than that, the recipe is perfect in it's ratios. Yum!
Because I couldn't help myself, I sauteed diced carrots along with the onion and celery, then replaced the water/bouillon with homemade chicken stock. Easy peasy quick soup which utilizes those last bits of leftover roasted chicken instead of in the usual sandwich/salad. *bonus* no cream-of can to open!
