I hope you're not sick of chicken and turkey yet. Please don't say you are because you absolutely need to make this if you like buffalo chicken items


Are you making this? 
4 1/2 cups potatoes; peeled and cubed
3 cups chicken; cubed
1 tablespoon butter or olive oil
1 cup onion; chopped
1 cup celery; chopped
1 teaspoon celery seed; divided
1 1/4 teaspoons salt; divided
2 teaspoons pepper; divided
1/8 teaspoon ground thyme
3/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes; (optional if you aren't a fan of any heat)
1/4 cup flour
2 cups half and half
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup buffalo sauce; (I used Frank's)
2 tablespoons corn starch
blue; cheese crumbles for topping

Original recipe makes 12 Servings



Begin by preparing vegetables: peel and cube potatoes,

Add to the slow cooker.

Chop onion and celery, set aside in a small bowl.

Warm a medium skillet over medium heat while trimming and cubing chicken breast into bite size pieces.

Add butter or olive oil to skillet.

Season chicken with 1/2 tsp celery seed, 1/2 tsp salt and 1 tsp pepper.

Cook chicken until no longer pink and heated through.

Just before chicken is completely cooked add onion and celery.

Cook until onions are translucent and tender.

Add chicken and vetegables to the slow cooker.

Carefully pour in half and half, chicken broth and buffalo sauce.

Gently stir.

Remove roughly 1 1/2 cup worth of liquid, add flour to the liquid. Whisk well until smooth.

Pour back into the slow cooker. add remaining spices: 1/2 tsp celery seed, 3/4 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper, ground thyme and red pepper flakes. Stir well.

Cover and cook on high for 5 hours or low for 10. Or until potatoes are tender.

To thicken, repeat the process used with flour previously: transfer 1 1/2 cup worth of liquid to a small bowl or measuring cup.

Add 1 tbsp corn starch. Mix well.

Add back to chowder.

Repeat with additional liquid and 1 tbsp corn starch.

Stir chowder well after adding liquid back in.

Divide among bowls.

Top off with blue cheese crumbles and a drizzle of buffalo sauce if desired.

Serve with celery slices.


It's a perfect easy and fresh slow cooker chowder. A nice updated version with a twist. The twist obviously being the buffalo chicken part. I've seen buffalo chicken soups in the past but never chowder so I had to give it a try.
