Buffalo Chicken Soup Recipe
When the weather gets cold and soup season hits, soup is one of my go-to dinners. I don’t always have time to wait for the crockpot or the stovetop to cook my soup, so I have been enjoying tossing everything into my InstantPot and having delicious soup in just a few minutes! There are so many keto soup recipes and low carb soup recipes, that I could make soup daily and never get bored!
We do not always have leftovers of this easy keto soup recipe, but when we do it heats up easily and makes the perfect lunch. In fact, there have been a few times that I have made a batch of this soup just so we can enjoy it for lunch. This healthy buffalo chicken soup is also great for bringing lunch to work or school. All you have to do is reheat it and then pour it into a thermos. It will stay warm in the thermos for you to enjoy at lunch time!
Everyone in my house has a different preference when it comes to anything spicy. The great thing about this creamy buffalo chicken soup recipe is that I add the initial amount of Frank’s Red sauce to the soup and then those who like it hotter add more, those who do not leave it as is.
If I am running short on time or I do not have any homemade dry ranch dressing made then I will use the packaged dry ranch dressing, however, I much prefer to use homemade dry ranch seasoning.

Is Buffalo Chicken Soup Low Carb?
Yes! This instant pot soup recipe is keto-friendly and low-carb.
I also want to mention that for this recipe I used the Green Giant Riced Cauliflower Medley (Cauliflower, Green Peas, Onions, Carrots, Green Onions), yes it has a few things that are not strict keto, but the carb difference between using only riced cauliflower and using the one with Cauliflower, Green Peas, Onions, Carrots, Green Onions is only 4g carbs for the WHOLE recipe.
A 10-ounce bag of riced cauliflower has 12g carbs and the 10-ounce bag of Green Giant Riced Cauliflower Medley has 16g carbs TOTAL. If you wish to not use the Green Giant Riced Cauliflower Medley you can use the riced cauliflower, however, I personally am ok with an extra 4g carbs total in the WHOLE RECIPE, which gives me the extra flavors in the soup.

Tips for Making this Recipe
Use room temperature cream cheese. To make the cream cheese mix into the soup better you want it to be room temperature.
Use frozen rice cauliflower. I use the Cauliflower Medley because I wanted more veggies, but you can use the one that is only rice cauliflower if you want to.
Add Blue cheese crumbles. If you want to add a topping to the soup blue cheese crumbles are the perfect addition.
What type of chicken do I need for this recipe?
I use chicken breasts, but you can use chicken thighs if that is what you have on hand.
What to Serve with Soup
If we are having soup for dinner then normally I make a salad as well. However most of the time I find that all I need is a bowl of this amazing buffalo chicken soup and I am a happy camper! I also like to make keto cheddar biscuits or keto cheddar bay biscuits. Not everyone in my house eats low-carb, so I will sometimes serve fresh bread with this healthy chicken soup recipe for them to eat with it.
How to store Leftovers
Allow the soup to cool completely and store it in an airtight container in the fridge. This soup will keep for up to 5 days.

Pour the soup into a microwave-safe bowl and heat in the microwave or pour the soup into a small pan and reheat on the stove over medium-low heat. Be sure to stir the soup while you are reheating it.
Can I freeze this easy chicken soup recipe?
Yes! If you want to freeze the soup into individual portions or as a full meal then you can. Just allow the soup to cool completely and pour into freezer-safe bags. Label the bags with the meal name and the day and lay them flat in the freezer. Once frozen you can stand the bags upright if needed for storing.
