The crock pot is the trick to create melt-in-your-mouth tender chicken! It's the perfect comfort food for a cold day. My picky 6-year-old ate 3 servings and asked for more the next day!


2 tablespoons Butter
3 stalks Celery; chopped
1/2 medium Onion; chopped
3 cans Chicken broth; 14.5 oz cans
1 1/2 cups Milk
1 tablespoon Frank's Red Hot sauce
1 Rotisserie Chicken; shredded
8 ounces Mozzarella cheese; shredded
1/3 cup Flour

Original recipe makes 6 Servings



In a sauté pan, cook celery and onion in 2 tbsp. butter until tender. Transfer to the crock pot.

To the crock pot, add broth, milk, hot sauce, and chicken. In a separate bowl, toss together cheese and flour. Add to crockpot and stir.

Cook on high for 3 hours, then lower to warm.

15 minutes prior to serving: If a creamier soup is desired, add heavy cream and/or thicken with cornstarch (mixed with broth).

Optional: Top with blue cheese crumbles and more Red Hot sauce.

Read all the reviews, so I used a half bottle of hot sauce, added corn, garlic, black pepper, and didn't put the mozzarella and bleu cheese on until I served. The bleu cheese is what made this. :) Not bad.

I added more Frank's, a packet a spicy ranch seasoning, diced red/yellow /green peppers, package of carrots, package of cream cheese, can of cheddar cheese soup, a little cayenne pepper, and bacon, can of corn and can diced tomatoes and garlic - we'll see how it turns out!

Loved this! I too had to thicken with cornstarch/ broth. I also added a little bit of half and half. I used WAY MORE hot sauce then recipe called for- if you follow recipe it's very bland. I also added peppers during the sauté part-red and orange then a 1/4 cup sliced jarred peppers. I will make this often .

Tried this tonight and it was me it came out bland. When I think of buffalo chicken, I think of hot and flavorful. I didn't get that so I did a lot of tweaking and tried it again. I used 3/4 of a 6 oz bottle of Texas Pete hot sauce instead of Franks red hot Added chopped russet potatoes. Crisped up bacon, chopped it up, added that. Added a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch Dip Seasoning Mix 4 shakes of garlic powder a pinch of a Italian seasoning Rice Heavy cream at the end for a creamy soup This time around it came out bursting with flavor and the spiciness I was looking for the first time around. The rice and potatoes made for a heartier soup which filled me up quite nicely! I will say this though, I LOVE spicy food, so my tweaked version does have a bit of a kick to it if you decide to try it out but it was so yummy.
