Buffalo Chicken Wing Soup Recipe

As many of you know, I grew up in Buffalo (and still live in a suburb). Wings were invented at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo back in the 1960s. We grew up ordering pizza and wings as a quick party food, comfort food, or just for dinner.

Buffalo-style wings have become so popular, that went my parents were in Singapore 15 years ago (or so), the waiter asked where they were from, they explained Buffalo, NY and they pointed to the Buffalo Chicken Wings selection on the menu!

The story takes a turn for the odd when the waiter did not realize that Buffalo was a place… I often wonder how many people think a buffalo has a wing? Anyhooo when they could not make him understand that Buffalo was the location the recipe was named after, and not a part of an animal, they finally told the waiter they were from “Niagara Falls”, and he was satisfied.

About 25 years ago or so, a local restaurant: Danny’s, started making Buffalo-style Chicken Wing Soup. It was a smash hit! For years they were the only place around you could get this type of soup. Danny restaurant buffalo chicken wing soup recipe is something a lot of locals seek out! Danny’s would serve Buffalo Chicken Wing Soup on occasion as one of their four soup and salad bar offerings. Apparently they heard from their patrons just how well loved it was because it is a regular offering.

If you mention Danny’s Restaurant to anyone local, they all say, “OMG Danny’s Chicken Wing Soup!!” and start to drool. Yeah, it is that good.

And, Hubby’s recipe is better. Take it from a Buffalonian who grew up eating wings and loving Danny’s chicken wing soup, this Buffalo chicken wing soup recipe is phenomenal!

    This is seriously my favorite thing right now! Soooo delicious! Perfect for fall/winter. The perfect amount of spicy. I only had one block of cream cheese so I improvised with a can of cream of chicken. Very, very yummy! Thank you for the recipe.

  4. Does anybody know if this is good to freeze?

    • Cori this freezes fabulously! Hubby has made it a lot, and we freeze some every single time. Defrost in refrigerator, heat (we reheat in the microwave) and serve.

      Ann

      • Thank you Ann. I just made this tonight for the first time. I figured there would be a lot but not this much! It is just me and my 8 year old :-). I will be freezing some. Thank you for responding so quickly.

  5. Kathy Stanford says

    I made this soup today using de-boned chicken wing meat from the Suoer Bowl party. I added water to the skin and bones I removed to make the broth then strained it. I halved the recipe as my husband is not a big “wing” fan but I think he is going to love this!
