Did I mention that I LOVE my crock pot? More than love it, I can't live without it. I can cook a meal and not have to stand in the kitchen all day. Not that I don't mind standing in the kitchen all day..just sometimes I want to stay on the couch under my blankie, cuddled with my boxer!!!!
I made Buffalo Chicken Soup, it's great. Now it is pretty spicy, so if that isn't your thing I don't recommend this recipe. If spicy is your thing don't hold back you will love with. Oh one more thing, there is a rue, it didn't work. I don't know what happened, but I dumped it in the pot anyways.
Buffalo Chicken Soup
1 tablespoon oil
1 large onion, chopped
3 stalks celery, diced
2 to 3 cups cooked chicken, diced
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
1 cup chicken broth
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 cup bottled buffalo wing sauce (mild or hot)
4 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and celery and saute for about 5 minutes. Scrap veggies into slow cooker. Add cooked chicken to the slow cooker. Melt butter in skillet over medium heat just until foamy. Whisk in the flour to make a roux, stirring well to incorporate all the flour. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until the roux is slightly golden. Scrap into the slow cooker. Stir in broth and milk. Add garlic salt and wing sauce. Stir well. Cover and cook low for 6 to 8 hours or high for 3 to 4 hours. Stir in cheese about 20 minutes before serving!
Enjoy on a cold day!!
