Buffalo Chicken Soup

I saw this recipe on Crockpot Lady's blog and knew I had to make it. I ended up modifying it quite bit, though. I did not use the crock pot, so I mostly followed the recipe on Recipe Zaar by Nonnie4Two. I used yellow onions instead of green, and I omitted the Velveeta for two reasons: one, I didn't have any and two, it just seemed wrong to me. Theres no cheese in Buffalo wings! If anything, I'd sprinkle some bleu cheese crumbles on the top next time.

Buffalo Chicken Soup:


  • 1 medium Walla Walla or Vidalia onion, chopped
  • 3 stalks, celery, chopped
  • 2 TBSP butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup skim milk
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 cups diced cooked chicken
  • 1/4-1/2 cup chicken wing sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt


  1. Saute onions and celery in butter until tender.
  2. Stir in flour until smooth.
  3. Slowly add milk and broth.
  4. Add remaining ingredients and simmer, stirring occasionally, until cheese has melted.
This soup was really good. I mixed in some Sriacha sauce with the wing sauce for a bigger kick and I had marinated the chicken in the same mixture first. Of course, I tossed out the sauce that the chicken was cooked in (that would have been gross and something my husband would have done) and added fresh sauce to the actual soup. Like I said, some bleu cheese crumbles would have been good. I'll have to get some for the leftovers.

I think we're going out to dinner tonight, so I'll do a review next. And hopefully, I'll have some race training details to add....since my race is in 14 days!


  1. Hi, I just followed your recipe after researching buffalo chicken soup. I too thought adding cheese was weird (and would make it much higher in fat.) I added the bleu cheese crumbles and it was very yummy, thank you!

  2. Dear Anonymous,
    You're welcome!! I have made it again since that post and the bleu cheese was a very nice addition. I'm glad you liked the recipe. And yea, the Velveeta is is just weird....and fattening! Thanks for the comment! :)
