Crock Pot Creamy Buffalo Chicken Noodle Soup

Crock Pot Creamy Buffalo Chicken Noodle Soup that is easy to throw together and SO delicious!Crock Pot Cream Buffalo Chicken Noodle Soup | www.wineandglue.com

As my late and amazing Great Aunt Betty would say, it’s time for true confessions.

I have a secret for all of you.  My family doesn’t {cough} eat a lot of the dinner recipes that I make for the blog.  Okay!  Now, before you close your browser and send me an email calling me a hack, hear me out!

I married maybe the pickiest eater on the planet.  I love him to death, but when you ask him his food nemesis (what is the plural form of nemesis?  nemini?) you get a list as long as your arm.  Celery, cilantro, broccoli, onions, cabbage, tomatoes that aren’t pureed . . . the list goes on and on and on.  He has come a LONG way since when we first married, but still . . .

Now, I understand that I’m going to sound like a bit of a whiner . . . I mean really, it’s just food.  And this man puts up with so much.  The least I can do is make him some soupy chili that has no chunks of tomato, right?  The problem is that I. LOVE. FOOD.  All types of food, eating a variety of food, rich foods, ethnic foods.  I. LOVE. FOOD.

But!  My blog has become the solution! (Do you hear the sound of angels singing?  I do.)  Now I have a reason to make all the foods I love that my husband loathes, and someone to share it with, you!  And really, that’s one of my favorite parts about cooking, the sharing.  I’m Italian.  It’s in my blood.

This Crock Pot Creamy Buffalo Chicken Noodle Soup is just that, a delicious and amazing meal that I LOVED but that Nathan wouldn’t touch with a ten foot pole . . . it’s got onions, celery, and another nemesis, BUFFALO SAUCE!  I know, I know.  He’s crazy.  But he’s my crazy.  What is even better, is that it’s made in the slow cooker.  It is so ridiculously easy to make, and even better?  It’s not a calorie bomb?  I’m trying to lose the last couple pregnancy pounds (and honestly, a little more), so I’ve been counting calories.  If you say this batch makes six servings (and it does), then each bowl comes in at 236 calories.  Not bad!  So I had two 🙂 . . . . the first day . . . and then went on to eat the WHOLE crock pot full.

    This post was hilarious, Lisa! I am picturing you eating straight out of the crock pot at the kitchen table…:) Love ya!

      Ah, if only it were that simple Sarah. When he and I met he’d never tried rice before. And he was in his 20’s. Now it’s one of his favorite foods. But I’m certainly not going to cook things for him that he’s tried several times and doesn’t like.

        Lisa, this sounds delicious and I’d like to try it but I’m a bit stumped by “buffalo sauce”. I’m sending from Ontario, Canada and perhaps this is a U.S. staple but not here. What is this?

        • says

          I use Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo sauce, but buffalo sauce in general is just hot sauce with butter and garlic. There are lots of recipes for it out there, and its definitely worth experimenting to make your own. It’s one of my favorite flavors!

  2. Sandy says

    Could I leave the chicken and everything In for longer? Say 8 hrs while I’m at work? Lol! Looks delish, I love ANYTHING buffalo

    • says

      Hi Sandy! The only parts of this recipe that are sort of time sensitive are the cream and the noodles, so yeah, I definitely think everything else could go for 8 hours. Enjoy!

  3. Lindsey says

    Made this tonight!! It was delicious as described. Used a little more cream though to lessen the strength of buffalo flavor. Will make again!!

  4. Jen says

    Made this tonight. As I am counting calories, I am curious what a serving size is? I know you say it serves 6, but it would be nice to know without measuring how much it made and then deciding by 6. Thanks.

    • says

      Hi Jen! I’m counting calories too, and I love that this is only about 270 or something per serving. Unfortunately, I don’t know the exact amount of a serving. I just gestimated that I could get six bowls out of it, and that was about right.

    This *just* finished cooking and I love it so much I had to tell you right away!! Easy & delicious recipe! I think most soups are even better the next day which will make this the perfect dish for Super Bowl!

    To all you who live with a picky eater, here is what I do: I make my own soups and divide them into pint glass Mason jars and freeze. YES, you can freeze a Mason jar, just leave a 1/2 inch or so at the top so the soup can expand. I modify the delicious soup recipes I find online to be vegetarian, gluten-free, and nut-free. Each pint becomes two lunches. I can then rotate them so I only have to eat the same soup 2 days in a row. I also use 1-cup Mason jars (the flat kind) to freeze leftover individual servings of casseroles and such, so I have food to eat when we go to a potluck or to my in-laws to eat.

    Just wanted to let you know that I made this soup this weekend and its absolutely delicious. Thank you so much!

    • says

      Katie, I’m way late in answering this, but for the next person who makes too much, I would say that this isn’t the best recipe to freeze. Or if you do want to make a big batch and freeze it, I would do it before adding the cream and noodles.

    • says

      Dana, this comment CRACKED ME UP. I would suggest that you not make it, honestly. I mean I LOVE this soup, but you will probably find it to be too spicy. You could always just buy a bottle of buffalo sauce and taste it before making the soup.

  8. Tiffany W. says

    I made this for dinner tonight. It was delicious! ( I only put in about half the amount of hot sauce and that was just the right amount for my family.)

  9. Michelle says

    Made this for the first time last night. We loved it. Any recipe that adds buffalo sauce to it, is a must have in this family. Even my 1 year old loved it. Lots of leftovers, so I am going to freezer for a later date. Thanks for sharing.
