"My husband and I love buffalo chicken wings, so we created a soup with the same zippy flavor," reports Pat Farmer from Falconer, New York, "It's very popular with guests." Start with a small amount of hot sauce, then add more if needed to suit your family's tastes.

"This is my favorite soup on the planet. I actually add some packets of chicken gravy to help thicken it."

"The recipe is wonderful. people complaining about it watery need to learn how to thicken with a cold water flour mixture. in fact, i wouldn't waste the money on creamy chicken soup ever. if i see it in a recipe i still make my own super cheap.bullion or homemade soup stock and cold water flour thickener. its costs pennies. buying premade creamy anything is a waste. it is a financial and environmental waste of energy.

yummy recipe thanks!"

"I used only 4 cans of milk and it was still watery.....I used the full 1/2 cup of got sauce and it was still too mild. Maybe blue cheese needs to be added ? Also I'm not a fan of making soup starting with cans of soup. I will not make this again."

"This is great the only thing I did was use chicken tenders, I make them the day before and make them like the wings. Then the day I make the soup I cut them into small 1/4" pieces and put them in the soup. To kick it up a bite the chicken tenders are spiced heavy with cumin"

"This was really good. I only had 2 cans of cream of chicken soup, so I added a can of Progresso's creamy roasted garlic recipe starter. I used 4 cans of canned chicken chunks. I added about 1/2 packet of dry ranch seasoning. I used 4 cups of milk instead of 6. Turned out pretty good!"

"This was great! I cooked it on the stove top, and it was very tastey. A few crumbles of blue cheese on the bottom of the bowl was a nice addition."

"This was great! I might use 5 cups of milk as it wasn't very thick, but with crackers it was still REALLY good."
