Buffalo Chicken Soup perfectly turns the delicious flavor of buffalo chicken wings into soup form. It’s so amazing!

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!

The Perfect Fall Soup

Soups are great any time of year, but they’re especially satisfying in the fall. The flavor of this buffalo chicken soup is so warm and just a little bit spicy. It will warm you up instantly!

The buffalo chicken flavor of this skinny soup is GOOD, it tastes just like eating actual buffalo wings. Instead of meatballs and cheesy dips, I think I’ll be eating this delicious soup for football games this fall. It’s spicy, hearty, comforting, and healthy. What a great combination!
