"Wow this is good! Tastes just like buffalo chicken/hot wings in a creamy and filling soup! Fast and simple too! I am not usually a fan of anything with canned cream soups but when I tried this I just had to have the recipe. There are lots of recipes here on Zaar for substitutes for canned cream soup that could be used with great results. I have listed that this makes a gallon, actually it makes just shy of a gallon of soup. From TOH with tweaks from Mama."

"I love this soup. I increased the hot sauce to 1 cup because we like our wings hot, and added chopped celery and carrots to add in some veggies. We live in Buffalo and this soup tasted just like our favorite wings. I will be making this a lot."
"Mmmm! So good and easy to make. We like spicy food, so I doubled the amount of hot sauce to a full 1 cup. I also used two cans of low-fat cream of chicken soup and one full fat can to cut the fat a bit, but the soup was still rich without being heavy."
"Fantastic! This was THE perfect soup to have for dinner on a snowy miserable night! I used 2 cream of chicken and 1 cream of celery, and I only used 1/8th of a cup of hot sauce, and that was PLENTY for us. Yes, we have wussy mouths! :o) We garnished ours with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of Mexican Blend cheese. Thank you for posting this!"
"Good as written, but great with these additions. We like it hot and tasty. I added some diced jalepenos, ground red pepper, and garlic. I ddin't have chicken so I sub. it for smoked turkey leg meat that I shredded...ummmm good!"
"This soup was awesome! My family normally doesn't finish leftovers and I have to throw them away. This soup was finished the very next night and we were still wanting more! My kids requested that I start making it every week. I did double the amount of buffalo sauce and ranch."
"I used 3 cups of chicken broth & 3 cups of milk. I made this for a soup lunch we had at our chuch. We had a lot of soup left over, but I didn't have any left over."
"Great comfort food! I added 2 more cups of shredded chicken for 5 cups total, and I followed others' suggestions in doubling the Red Hot and adding chopped celery. DH and I loved it and had no trouble taking care of all the leftover soup. (We've gotten at least 10 generous servings out of it!) I should note for others interested that doubling the Red Hot was a bit much for our senior guests. Thanks, Mama's Kitchen, for a quick, easy, tasty dish!"
"LOVE! I used 2 cans crm of chx and 1 can crm of celery, added a little extra ranch and buffalo sauce (because I love the taste of both!) and used all lowfat/fat free products and it turned out great! I ended up throwing in some chunks of green pepper as well simply because I had them on hand and I think they added to the soup :) Will definitely be making this again!"
"This turned out great! I made it for a family dinner where we were each to bring a crockpot of soup. My SIL was already making my regular go-to, so I went on a hunt for something new, and found this recipe! I added about 1/4 cup more hot sauce than it called for and I also tossed in some chopped celery. It was delicious, and got rave reviews from all! In fact, out of the 6 soups at the dinner, this one was the most popular. Thanks!"
"I made this for a union meeting Christmas Party. It was a big hit! It was so tasty!!"
"Very good. I used breast on the bone that I just baked and stripped the meat to throw in the pot. Used less milk so as to not be too thin, but followed the recipe after that. Put this in MY Cookbook."
"Amazing! I've shared this with many others and they all love it!"
"WOW! Even great using canned chicken!"
"Fantastic soup!! Followed recipe exactly and served over rice. This one is a keeper!!"
"Just another fantastic way to get your chicken wing fix without the messy fingers. Be sure to use Frank's Red Hot for the really authentic flavor."
"Wow!! Really, really loved this recipe as much as I thought I was going to!! I did make a low fat version (skim milk, half fat cream of celery soup, fat free sour cream, fat free ranch) but the soup was still rich & creamy. I did add a small amount of shredded cheddar to each bowl before serving. The flavour was outstanding - spicy but not too hot! I went back for seconds!! As another reviewer suggested, this would be set off perfectly with some garlic bread or homemade biscuits!!"
"Wow! This was awesome! All my kids...even my 8 year old loved it! Next time I think I will add the whole rotisserie chicken instead of just 3 cups. I had to use Ranch dressing in the soup because my kids aren't into Blue cheese but next time I will get some to top off my husbands and mine. I also loved that it was so easy to prepare! Thanks for a great recipe! Update: We now serve it over crushed tortilla chips w/blue cheese dressing and a sprinkle of buffalo sauce! YUM!"
"DH (who loves spicy food) had a cold. I thought that something spicy like this would be just right for him. It was. I added cayenne pepper and a little less hot sauce. A day or two later, I made this with mushrooms instead of chicken for my vegetarian daughter. I also froze a serving successfully."
"So funny Mama, I didn't know this was your recipe until I sat down to review it. This was a great recipe to throw together on a snowy and cold day. It tasted wonderful. Some advice. I thought I was bein clever by using chicken nuggets for the chicken. So easy and breaded. Don't do it. The tasted great at lunch time, however, at dinner they were kinda mushy. Tasted fine, but terrible consistancy. I used low fat soups, sour cream, milk, and dressing to success. I also used half blue cheese and half ranch. Thanks Mama."
"I made this for a work pot luck and got rave reviews. I had people who don't cook asking for the recipe! The only change I made was to through in a little shredded cheese at the end (because I was trying to use it before it went bad). I have made it several times since and it's always great."
