If you are a fan of buffalo chicken wings, you are in the right place! Buffalo sauce is an amazing condiment and ingredient because it packs a great set of macros! It’s low calorie and is actually zero carb and has no added sugar!

What Type of Chicken To Use

I like to use skinless breasts, but you can use whatever type of chicken you want. You can cook the chicken using an Instant Pot or a Slow Cooker for shredded chicken.

You can cut the chicken into cubes and saute it on the stove if you wish.

You can also purchase a rotisserie chicken and shred it.

How to Make Buffalo Chicken Soup

  4. Simmer for 10 minutes on medium-low heat.
  5. Open the pot and add the cream cheese and sour cream.
  6. Stir to combine.

How to Thicken the Soup

You can add more cream cheese or you can make a cornstarch slurry (1 teaspoon cornstarch, 1 teaspoon water) mix it together and add it for the soup.

To save the carbs you can also do the same with xanthan gum.

What Goes Well With The Soup

How Long the Soup Will Last in the Fridge

The soup will last 3-4 days in the refrigerator, tightly sealed.

Freezer Tips

Yes, you can freeze the soup for a few months. I like to use these convenient Freezer Soup Molds from Amazon. They are great for portion control and indicate portions for 1/2 cup or 1 cup.

Upon reheating, the dairy will separate from the soup and is normal. If you are planning to freeze large portions, you can also omit the cream cheese and Greek yogurt, and add it after you freeze and defrost.

Instructions

Dutch Oven Shredded Chicken

  • Add the chicken breasts, 1 cup of chicken broth, chicken seasoning, salt and pepper to taste to the Dutch oven on medium-low heat.

  • Open the pot and shred the chicken.

Buffalo Chicken Soup

  • Heat a large soup pot, I like to use a Dutch oven on medium-high heat.
  • Add the olive oil and onions. Cook until the onions are fragrant and translucent.
  • Add in the garlic and stir.
  • Add the remaining chicken broth, shredded chicken, salt and pepper to taste, and Frank's Buffalo Sauce to the pot. Stir and then lower the heat to medium and cover.
