I can’t wait to try it with other soups to make them healthier with this genius idea.

Skinny Buffalo Chicken Soup Recipe
The inspiration for this amazing soup came from another blogger.
I was lucky enough to meet Jen at a blog conference in St. Louis. Over the past year, she has lost 100 pounds. ONE HUNDRED POUNDS.
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 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 and used a combination of chicken stock and chicken broth. I would love to know how you make this recipe your own as well!
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.
