More About This Recipe
  • Buffalo chicken got its start in none other than Buffalo, New York, where it was originally served as Buffalo wings (deep-fried wings doused in hot sauce and served with Bleu cheese and celery). Today you can find Buffalo chicken served in all kinds of ways that go beyond the wings, like Buffalo chicken dip, Buffalo chicken casserole and this slow-cooker Buffalo chicken soup. Most people still serve anything Buffalo flavored with Bleu cheese and celery, which can help cool off the hotness that comes with Buffalo sauce, although ranch dressing is another popular pick. Want to go beyond ranch and Bleu cheese? Discover more delicious ways to take your soup toppings up a notch with these easy ideas. Plus, check out the rest of our easy chicken soup recipes!
