Buffalo Chicken Soup

buffalo chikcen soupEver since we started making buffalo chicken pizza I just can’t seem to get enough of buffalo chicken dishes.

This soup is very unique, so much so that I don’t even know how to describe it.  It’s like chicken noodle soup meets buffalo chicken.  It’s good.  Try it.
