Buffalo Chicken Soup 
6th-Oct-2009 02:01 pm
I inaugurated my new Dutch oven last night with some soup that I can't wait to make again! The recipe has been sitting in my recipe-clippings binder forever. I was sorry I halved the recipe - we ate it all, so no leftovers. I'm so glad it's soup weather again. Please share your favorite fall soup recipes! :)

Buffalo Chicken Soup
From Better Homes & Gardens. Serves 6.

I substituted regular pre-cooked chicken (that I had on hand) for rotisserie chicken, and a little blue cheese dressing for actual blue cheese.

1 2-1/4 to 2-1/2 lb. deli-roasted chicken, skinned, boned, and coarsely shredded
2 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup coarsely chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 14-oz cans reduced-sodium chicken broth
1-1/2 cups milk
1 tsp hot pepper sauce
1-1/2 cups mozzarella cheese
1-1/4 cups crumbled blue cheese
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup all-purpose flour

1. In a 4-quart Dutch oven, melt butter over medium heat. Add celery and onion; cook and stir until onion is tender.
2. Stir in broth, milk, and hot pepper sauce.
3. In a bowl, toss together mozzarella, 1 cup of the blue cheese, Parmesan, and flour. Add gradually to soup, stirring after each addition just until melted.
4. Stir in three-fourths of the shredded chicken; heat through. Top with remaining chicken, blue cheese, and additional hot sauce.

I'm having a hard time imagining the taste or appearance of that! Is it a creamy soup? Or just a milky-colored broth? Does it taste like buffalo wings?

Yay for the Dutch Oven! How did it work out for you compared to another type of cooking pot?

It's creamy! I know, it sounds a little weird. But it was soooo good.

I loved using it! It heated really quickly and evenly even on a low heat. I've also read that it makes food more flavorful somehow. I'm looking forward to making more stuff in it. :)

I'm seriously thinking about making this, but I'm afraid to show it to Matthew first to ask him what he thinks of it. He likes buffalo chicken and all of the ingredients, so he should like it... right? ;-)

YES! Do it! Evan loves it and he's a very picky eater. :) Just don't tell him what it is until he eats it.
