Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken thighs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 14.5 ounce can fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup Frank’s RedHot Wings Buffalo Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 ounce dry Ranch dressing packet
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon flour
  • 8 ounces cream cheese I used fat-free
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • blue cheese crumbles topping
  • diced celery optional
  • diced green onions optional

Instructions

  • In a Dutch-oven or large sauce pan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken thighs and season with salt and pepper, cook until a nice golden brown on each side and center is cooked through.
  • Remove chicken from pan and set aside to cool. In the same pan, add the chicken broth, fire-roasted tomatoes, buffalo sauce, granulated garlic, onion powder, ranch packet, and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and let it simmer for 15 minutes. 
  • While it is simmering, chop chicken and set aside, then cut the cream cheese into cubes.
  • Once the soup has simmered for 15 minutes, remove 1/2 cup of the soup and add in 1 1/2 tablespoon of flour and whisk together until smooth. Pour back into the pot and add in chicken and cream cheese chunks. Cover and let it cook for 5 minutes. Remove lid and stir, until the cream cheese has completely mixed in and melted into the soup. Add in corn, cover and simmer 10 minutes over low heat.
  • Remove soup from heat and let it sit for 5-10 minutes.
  • Serve and top soup with blue cheese crumbles, and optional items such as diced celery and green onions.
