Like many of you, I love Buffalo wings, too. But sometimes, I do want to stay away from the mess, especially on some days you want to be a couch potato. That was the reason I created this recipe.
Tug it under a cozy blanket on the couch watching a movie with a bowl of hot soup tastes like Buffalo wings. Wouldn't you say that is one of the best moments of life? I would. Simple and relaxing.
When I make soup, I don't usually make it too thick. This one is an exception. When I made this creamy chicken soup recipe the first time, I tried to make it similar to the regular soup I always make. It was not filling or thick enough to hold the Buffalo wing flavor. So, when I made it the second time, I made a thick one like this which comes out perfect.
Feel free to replace the fat free half and half with regular milk or fat free milk.
Also, I purposefully put just a little bit of Buffalo wing sauce into the soup and serve the bottle of sauce on the side. It is because some of my family members can only take a little bit of heat. If you have family and/or friends like that, I highly recommend you to do the same as well.
1 pound Russet Potato (peeled and small dice)
10 oz Carrot Matchsticks (rough chop)
1 small Yellow Onion (small dice)
2 stalks Celery (small dice; reserve about 2 tbsp for garnish later)
2-4 cups Diced Cooked Chicken (rotisserie chicken, make your own or any chicken leftover would work out fine)
3 cups Low Sodium Chicken Broth (reserved 1 cup to thin out the soup, if it's too thick)
1 quart Fat Free Half and Half
6 tbsp Butter (or 3/4 sticks)
3/4 cup All Purpose Flour
4 oz Blue Cheese Crumbles (reserve about 1 tbsp for garnish later)
1 tbsp Buffalo Sauce and more to serve on the side (I use Frank's Red Hot Wings Buffalo sauce)
1 tbsp Garlic Powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
