My family loves pretty much buffalo chicken everything. While my husband’s motto is the spicier the better, I personally am not a fan of spicy food except for buffalo sauce. But with the buffalo sauce there needs to be blue cheese, of course. This soup is basically a bowl of yummy cheese and chicken with a nice little buffalo sauce kick. It is absolutely delicious and such a great comfort food.
If you follow my blogs and Facebook page you know we always have Buffalo Chicken dip when the Patriots are playing, and that every time I make homemade pizza I make Buffalo Chicken pizza. You probably also know that my son doesn’t like onions, which will be touched upon later in this recipe.
3 cups of cooked chicken breast, shredded
2 tbsp. butter
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1/2 cup onion, chopped
28 oz. chicken broth
1 1/2 cups milk
2 tsp. buffalo sauce
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/2 cup shredded or grated parmesan cheese
1/3 cup flour
Shred the chicken and chop up the onions and celery, and set aside. As you can see there are no onions in my picture (son doesn’t like onions).
Combine the blue cheese, mozzarella, and parmesan in a small bowl. Mix in the flour and also set aside.
Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add the celery and onions and cook until they just start to soften. Try to imagine the onions are actually in the pan.
Sorry to digress, but I always think of this when I have to leave out the onions in a recipe. It’s so true!
Ok, back to the recipe.
Add the chicken broth, buffalo sauce, and milk. Bring to a boil stirring frequently.
Whisk in the cheese until it has melted. It tends to be chunky so you really need to give it quite a whisking.
Stir in the chicken and simmer for about 5 minutes until it starts to thicken.
That’s it! Serve with additional buffalo sauce on the side for those that like it a little spicier.
