Buffalo Chicken Soup

This skinny buffalo chicken soup recipe is full of that classic buffalo chicken flavor AND it’s healthy. This is a great skinny soup recipe for fall!

Buffalo Chicken Soup is the perfect way to get one of my all-time favorite flavor combinations: buffalo sauce and chicken. Turning it into a skinny soup recipe just makes it all the better.

My Beer Cheese Buffalo Chicken Dip is my absolute favorite appetizer to make for tailgate season (M-I-Z!), and my Blue Cheese Stuffed Buffalo Chicken Meatballs…omg. The only drawback? They’re not exactly the healthiest of recipes. Luckily my friend Jen from Fat Chick to Fit Chick has saved the day, and the calories. She created this AMAZING Skinny Buffalo Chicken Soup…and I’ll be forever grateful.

This is one of the most creative and delicious healthy recipes I have ever made! I’m going to be cooking this up all through the fall season.

This Skinny Buffalo Chicken Soup recipe is full of flavor AND it’s healthy. The best of both worlds!

How to Make Buffalo Chicken Soup

Buffalo Chicken Soup is so tasty. I love this that skinny soup version makes it healthy without ruining the flavor. It’s easy to make and it even has a secret ingredient…

I would have never thought of doing this on my own (thank you Jen!). The secret ingredient is CAULIFLOWER. Pureed cauliflower thickens the base of this soup to keep it super low in calories, while not sacrificing any flavor. Absolutely amazing. I can’t wait to try it with other soups to make them healthier. Such a genius idea.

Skinny Buffalo Chicken Soup Recipe

The inspiration for this skinny buffalo chicken soup recipe came from another blogger.

I was lucky enough to meet Jen at a blog conference in STL. Over the past year, she has lost 100 pounds. ONE HUNDRED. There are all kinds of blogs out there on the internet, but I think the inspirational ones are the best. Jen has an amazing and motivational story to tell, and I hope you check out her blog (and she has an absolutely adorable daughter too)! You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll find some super creative and healthy recipes!

I changed very little about this skinny soup recipe, because it was just so perfect the way Jen wrote it (she also has really helpful step by step pics!). I used cooked rotisserie chicken to save time. I also used a combination of chicken stock and chicken broth because that’s what I had on hand. I would love to know how you make this recipe your own as well!

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds rotisserie chicken cooked and shredded
  • 3 tbsp ranch seasoning*
  • 1 large head of cauliflower chopped
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 pound sliced carrots
  • 6 stalks of celery sliced
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Instructions

  1. Boil cauliflower in stock pot with water, ranch seasoning, chicken broth, and chicken stock until very tender; approximately 10 minutes.
  2. While cauliflower is cooking, saute carrots, celery, and onion with the butter. Cook on medium heat until the onions are translucent and the vegetables are fork tender.

  6. Serve hot with green onion and blue cheese as garnish (optional)

That soup looks incredible Becky! I love that it has blue cheese on top and that it's made lighter with the cauliflower puree.

    I'm right there with you on the obsession with buffalo chicken...but...that last part...ugh!!! JK :) I wish we still played each other! Those were always my favorite games of the year

Loved this! I added a large can of white beans too, my hubby and I like beans in our soups, gives some more fiber to it as well. Thanks!

I see the asterix following the ranch seasoning, but I couldn't find its companion to tell me what that asterix means. Would you mind sharing it again?

Ranch dressing seasoning is basically a packet of dry ranch dressing mix. Hidden Valley is one of the popular brands.
