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.

    Hello

    Can you cook it on high for less time? Thanks!

    • Lisa Longley says

      I haven’t tried with this particular recipe, Stacy, but my general rule of thumb is if you go from low to high, you cut the time in half. Let me know how it turns out!

    Where to start? This is such an excellent soup! Different, creamy, spicy, flavorful, easy to make…
    Ease of preparation 5*
    Flavor 5* It was a little spicy for us even with an extra 1/2 cup of cream. We will probably try a 1/2 bottle of the buffalo sauce next time but it was still great-we warmed up a nice French baquette in the oven and had that with the soup and that helped ease the heat plus it’s a great reason for some warm, buttered bread!
    It is so creamy, so good. The picture looked so tempting I had to make it and I am glad I did. It is definitely a different soup and will be a great autumn/winter/early spring dish…well, great any time, really. Ummm, so good. Thanks for the recipe!

        I don’t think like is quite strong enough, Lisa. I LOVE this soup. I don’t normally eat hot soup in the summer but I just put it in the crock pot. This is SO good and my husband loves it, too. Put in only half as much buffalo sauce this time-but have half a bottle left in case I need more! ; ) One thing-I rarely repeat recipes, not because I don’t like/love them but because there are so many great recipes to try! But, some of them you just have to repeat and this is one. Yummy, my mouth is already watering in anticipation! Thanks for something that is way better than good! And, one of these days I am going to try your pull-apart buffalo bread! It looks so good, too!

    Several years late, but great recipe! Made it for work lunches for the last 3 weeks! I modified it slightly, using 1/2 cup bleu cheese salad dressing in place of the cream and bleu cheese crumbles. Mainly because I don’t use cream that often and don’t want what’s left to go to waste.

    • Lisa Longley says

      That’s such a great substitute! Thank you so much for coming back to let me know!

  4. Mary Kate says

    I have this in the crockpot right now and can’t wait!! One thing — I did put to much buffalo sauce so do you have a suggestion on something to add to make it less spicy?
    Thanks!

    • Lisa Longley says

      You could add more chicken stock and more noodles. It will be a different soup, but will still be delicious. Another thing you can add is more heavy cream. The best things to counter spice are breads and dairy. I hope this helps!
