This Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Soup Recipe is ideal for leftover chicken or using up extra chicken breasts. Enjoy an easy, hearty, creamy, family favorite!
I always appreciate a good meal with a nice tang. I’m all about adding a variety of spices in my dishes to liven up its flavor profile. I am also all about an easy recipe my family will love. My Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Soup Recipe is easy to make and has such a great kick to it.
This flavor packed Buffalo Chicken Soup is ideal for when you have leftover chicken or you don’t know what to do with those extra chicken breasts. Who says they don’t have time for homemade meals?! It cooks up to be hearty, thick, creamy and a family favorite of ours.
Another reason I love this recipe is because it is so versatile. I can add different vegetables or other ingredients, depending what I have on hand.
In the past I have added corn and black beans, which was delicious! We have also added some ranch seasoning, which the kids really enjoyed. So, play with the recipe and enjoy your results!
PanSaver Slow Cooker Liners with a Sure Fit Band – fits 3 qt to 6.5 qt
You might want to consider using a slow cooker liner for this dish. There’s no reason to let the dread of cleaning your Crockpot to keep you from using it. You can find them here.
Once you are done cooking and serving, just pull the liner of the pot and throw away. You’ll be left with a totally clean slow cooker with nothing to wash!
Crock-Pot 20-Ounce Lunch Crock Food Warmer
Another great idea for work lunches is this Crock-Pot Lunch Crock Food Warmer. You can leave the warming base at work and use the removable food container to transport your lunch from home.
The warming base will keep your food warm or heat your foods over time. It’s a good way to avoid standing in line to use the office microwave (which is usually pretty filthy inside anyway!)
And lastly, before we get to the recipe, if you want to know more about the slow cooker I use (and LOVE) read more in my Cuisinart 3-In-1 Cook Central Multi-Cooker review.
