Crock Pot Buffalo Chicken Soup

Craving more easy soups? If you are looking for more I have tons of recipes that might fit what you are looking for. Instant Pot 15 Bean Soup, Spaghetti and Meatballs Soup, or even Cabbage Roll Soup.

Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Soup  

I wanted to create a quick and easy soup to toss in your crockpot and let it cook for the day. It carries a nice little kick of flavor. 

Can I Use Pre Cooked Chicken In Replace of Chicken Breasts 

If you have some leftover rotisserie chicken or some that you have diced or shredded in advance go ahead. You can easily swap fresh chicken with pre-cooked. 

I like to do fresh chicken because as it cooks it will really soak in a lot of flavor from the veggies and broth made. 

Adjust The Heat To Your Preference 

The one thing I want to mention about this buffalo chicken soup is you can adjust the heat factor to your preference. 

If you prefer it a little spicier at the end splash in a bit more hot sauce. If you want to tame the heat, use less hot sauce in the recipe. 

The cream cheese mixed in to give this soup a creamy base will also help in aiding to mellow out the flavor. 

Topping Ideas for Buffalo Chicken Soup

  • Green Onions 
  • Celery slice for nibbling on 
  • Shredded Cheese or Blue Cheese
  • Tortilla Chips or even Corn Chips 
  • Sour Cream 
  • Etc 

You can honestly load of toppings or serve it plain. It is very versatile and will taste great no matter how you choose to serve the soup. 

Storing Chicken Buffalo Soup 

This soup of course needs to be stored in the fridge. It will store for around three days in the fridge as a leftover soup. Just make sure to use your best judgement in terms of quality of the soup. 

For freezing since there is cream cheese in this recipe it will curdle a bit and alter the texture if frozen. So I recommend only making what you plan to eat before it goes bad. 

Can I Cook Chicken From Frozen In Slow Cooker 

There is a lot of debate on if you can safely cook frozen meat in the slow cooker. The reason being is since a slow cooker is low and slow on temp, some people advise not to do chicken from frozen. 

Other people say it is fine to make from frozen, just add time to the cook time. So I don’t want to say one way or another is better. I think it is best if you choose to do what you feel most comfortable with.

I'm confused about how many chicken breats are in this recipe. It says at the beginning it has 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts then further down it says 2 medium chicken breasts toward the bottom of the ingredient list.
