SKINNY Buffalo Chicken Soup! It's thickened with CAULIFLOWER! The most delicious healthy soup you will ever taste! Made in 30 min! - The Cookie RookieThere are few flavor combinations I love more than buffalo sauce and chicken.  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 recipes I have ever made!

I can’t wait to try it with other soups to make them healthier.  Pure. Genius.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds of cooked and shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 3 tbsp of ranch seasoning*
  • 1 large head of cauliflower chopped
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 pound of sliced carrots
  • 6 stalks of celery sliced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup Franks Red Hot Sauce (or your favorite hot sauce), use less if you want it to be less spicy, more if you want to burn your mouth off :)
  • chopped green onion and blue cheese crumbles for garnish

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.
  3. Using an immersion blender, blend the cauliflower into a puree in the stock pot. It should blend completely and form a thicker base for the soup. Add the hot sauce and stir.
  4. Add the celery, carrots, and onion to the stock pot and stir.
  5. Stir in chicken and let cook on low for 20-30 minutes
  6. Serve hot with green onion and blue cheese as garnish (optional)
  7. Enjoy!

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.
