Buffalo Chicken Soup Recipe: An addicting, delicious cold weather “spin,” on the ever so famous Buffalo Chicken Dip.

Buffalo Chicken Soup Recipe - This is ADDICTING!!

Isn’t this the cutest little bowl? I found it in adorable colors here.

After having a buffalo chicken soup at a local deli last Winter, my heart was won over. It was the soup of all soups. The beat of my heart. The ultimate.

So when I was stuck at home one day, (with no car… but that’s a story for another day), I thought I’d see if I could find a recipe online, to try and at least get “close” to the amazingly delish soup I had at the deli.

Buffalo Chicken Soup. This is ADDICTING!

Buffalo Chicken Soup

I searched high and low on Pinterest, and finally found a Buffalo Chicken Soup recipe that knocked my socks off, from Doughmesstic. I did leave out the celery in this recipe that day, only because I didn’t have any on hand. But my husband is not a huge fan of the green stuff anyway… so leaving it out, wasn’t the end of the world. However, I did replace it with a bit of celery salt, to get that flavoring in there that I desired. That seemed to be a great compromise for us. But the recipe below includes celery.

Buffalo Chicken Dip?

If you’re a fan of the buffalo chicken dip, that’s an ever so popular appetizer that’s served here in the midwest a lot, then you’re going to flip over this soup. Plus… the ingredients are likely on hand in your home already!

Chicken Options

No rotisserie chicken on hand? No problem. I literally grabbed a few frozen chicken breasts out of the freezer the other day and baked them really quick. (Just shred the chicken with a fork and knife for super hot chicken. It seems easier to pull apart if its warm too!)

I kid you not… when my guests try this soup when they come over, they’re forever in love. It’s now my go-to soup recipe when wanting to impress the heck outta my guests. Enjoy!

    OHMYGOSH!!! I’m trying this as soon as I can! I have a great tip for you… Cut your chicken into largish pieces after you cook it and dump it into your Kitchenaid with the paddle… So easy and it shreds perfectly. And if you don’t have a Kitchenaid, that’s my first tip. The best.
