Buffalo Chicken Soup

Buffalo Chicken Soup

The best spicy flavor

It is something to savor

With a fresh hot pretzel

Or a cold frosty beer

The new soup of the season

Is finally here!

Ingredients

  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 large carrot
  • 3 small celery stalks
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4-5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked & shredded
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 1/2 -3/4 C. of Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Sauce
  • Shredded cheddar cheese or blue cheese crumbles to sprinkle on top of each bowl
  • Salt & pepper

Directions

1. Melt 1 stick of butter in a large saucepan.

2. Use a food processor to finely chop the onion, carrot, celery, and garlic, and saute in the butter for 2 minutes.

3. Add the flour and stir constantly to make a roux.

4. Cook until the roux is a light brown color.

5. In another saucepan, combine the shredded chicken and the stock.

6. Heat until it boils.

7. Pour the boiling stock & chicken slowly into the saucepan with the roux, whisking briskly so it doesn’t lump.

8. Continue to cook over low heat and bring to a boil. The mixture will become thick.

9. In a small saucepan, gently heat the half-and-half and hot sauce.

10. Stir it into the soup gently until incorporated.

11. Add the salt and pepper, to taste.

Serving Suggestions—Top each bowl with either shredded cheddar cheese or blue cheese crumbles. It would also pair well with a fresh soft pretzel.

  1. It wasn’t as dark as the picture. We had to add more flour, and hot sauce. Overall it wasn’t bad, it wasn’t as thick as the picture.
