Buffalo Chicken Soup Recipe

Chicken Wing Soup

Hey guys! Hope your day is well. We’ve done a lot of soups here on Lil’ Luna. Some of my favorites include this Cheesy Potato and this Pork and Edamame Soup. So good! Well, I have a new soup to add to my go-to list, and if you’re a fan of buffalo sauce and chicken wings, then you’ll want to add this to your list too! Today’s Tried and True recipe, and my new personal favorite, is this Buffalo Chicken Soup!

This soup has simple ingredients, but a strong delicious flavor! You can increase the spice by adding more wing sauce, or decrease it by adding less. I personally love my food spicy and could have handled a little more, but even the 1/4 cup is TASTY! It literally tastes like buffalo wings in soup form!

How to make Buffalo Chicken Soup:

Like almost all the recipes here on Lil’ Luna, this chicken soup is simple and perfect to enjoy all year long. It’s delicious and can be even more flavorful based on the garnishes added. Drizzle on some Ranch dressing or Bleu cheese on top, and you’ll feel like you’re eating wings in soup form! Here is what you’ll do to make it…

  1. Melt butter in a large pot over medium-high heat, then cook the celery in the melted butter for about 5 minutes, until tender.
  2. Add the flour and cook 2 minutes until absorbed.
  3. Slowly stir in the half-and-half and water. Dissolve your bouillon cube in the liquid.
  4. Stir in the chicken, buffalo wing sauce, and Cheddar cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Reduce to medium-low heat.
  5. Allow the soup to simmer until the cheese has melted completely, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

For those who love bleu cheese, I’d add some on top for even more flavor but we were out when we shot this and didn’t include it. 😉 If you love the flavors of buffalo wings, you’ll definitely love this soup!

    Re: the Buffalo Chicken Soup, when do we add the onion powder? Thanks!

      Lil' Luna

      Oops, I need to add that. You could add it really in any step, it replaces an onion, which I don’t like, but would be added in step one, so I add the powder. Hope that helps & hope you like it!
