What's for Dinner?

This week's cool, spring weather was perfect for soup, I made a great chowder from Closet Cooking. I love Kevin's blog, homestyle recipes but with a kick! Pop over for a visit and use his handy print button to save this recipe... it's a keeper!
All the flavors we love with Buffalo Wings in a hearty chowder!

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 pound chicken, cut into bite sized pieces ( I used leftover rotisserie chicken)
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 1 cup celery, cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup carrot, cut into small pieces
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • * hot sauce to taste (I added about 4 good shakes of Tabasco, you can use Frank's too!)
  • 1 large yukon gold or other boiling potato, peeled and cut into bite sized pieces
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup heavy cream (I used half and half since I'm watching my girlish figure!)
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese, crumbled (Didn't have, but this definately would put it over the top)
  • Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the chicken and saute until golden brown, about 8-10 minutes (I used rotisserie chicken so I skipped having to brown the chicken, I just chopped it into bite sizes pieces). Add the onion, celery and carrots and cook until tender, about 10-15 minutes.
Add the garlic and flour and cook until fragrant, about a minute. Add the chicken broth and deglaze the pan. Add the hot sauce and potatoes, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes. (I didn't have blue cheese, but this would really make the soup take on the same wonderful flavors of Buffalo Wings. I would definately make this again and again!)


  1. So that's the trick! Guess I need to post irresistible recipes to get you to visit me. Yeah, like that's gonna happen! LOL!

    1. I'm always searching for something new to eat, I guess that's because I'm always thinking about my NEXT meal! We have 1/2 a steak that's leftover tonight... I'm thinking a vegetable beef soup for lunches.

  2. Oh my, but this looks good!On any given day I have every single ingredient. I'm printing this one off!

  3. I love recipes that can be put together from what I have in the pantry! Since I rarely have capers or caviar, this one "spoke to me!"
