Buffalo Chicken ChowderComments : 12 Posted in : Dinner, Lunch, Taste Test Thursday on by : Chris Tags: buffalo, buffalo chicken, Chicken, chowder, Dinner, lunch, Soup
In my best Boston accent – Buffalo Chicken Chowdah!
Sorry. I can’t help but say chowdah! when I read the word chowder.
I love spicy food. And by spicy I mean so hot that my my belly is on fire and my eyes are tearing. (Not to be confused with curry spicy, which is the bane of my existence ever since I bit into what I thought was a sugared jelly donut my first day as an exchange student in Japan, only to horrifyingly learn it was filled with curry. Gag)
So it goes without saying I love Buffalo Chicken. So a buffalo chicken
chowdah chowder? Yes, please!
I immediately knew I wanted to try this recipe when I saw it posted a few weeks ago on a food blog I’ve been following since I first got into the foodie scene; Baked By Rachel. Rachel said her husband, also a big fan of Buffalo Chicken, loved this Buffalo Chicken Chowder.
The only thing that held me back from making it sooner is that Rachel’s original recipe is for slow cookers and I don’t have one (don’t revoke my food blogger card please!). I still don’t have a slow cooker, but as I was really in the mood for some spicy food last weekend I decided to adapt the recipe for the stove top. It came out really well!
You can adjust the heat in this recipe to suit your own personal preference. Even if you don’t like to have your eyes tearing and your mouth on fire, you can still enjoy this delicious Buffalo Chicken soup.
You can see my stove top adaptation in the recipe below. Or if you prefer the slow cooker original, check out Rachel’s Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Chowder recipe.
