This Chicken Wing Soup is my first attempt at putting together a copycat recipe. You know something is delicious when you enjoy it so much that you try to recreate it yourself.

 

The soup that I love is from a casual place here in the Buffalo, NY area called Danny’s Restaurant. Their Award-Winning Spicy Buffalo Chicken Wing Soup is nothing short of amazing. The rest of the menu may be just as amazing, but I don’t know because I fill myself up on the unlimited soup each and every time I visit.

I have long since wanted to find a copycat recipe for the soup and searched a few times online but never found closely resembling it. Some claimed to be the real deal but I would look at the ingredients and shake my head. I didn’t know exactly what was in it but I knew it wasn’t Velveeta, for instance, as one of the imitators called for.

 

Last week I was craving some of Danny’s soup. I was just coming off of an illness and still didn’t feel quite up to heading out, but my appetite was finally back, and I wasn’t going to be satisfied until I got this soup! 

 

I tried one more internet search for the recipe and again came up empty-handed. I decided to give it my best shot at recreating it on my own. And I must say, I am so pleased with how it turned out! It actually tastes like Danny’s Spicy Buffalo Chicken Wing Soup. Woohoo!

You will need to create a blonde roux for this soup. If you don’t know what that is or how to make it, you’ll find a quick video that is a great guide below: 

 

 

I like to use homemade chicken stock for my soups, but you can use your favorite pre-made chicken stock, if you prefer.

 

The key to this soup is in the mixing. Whisk the roux in very well. Make sure to keep it mixed to a smooth consistency throughout the entire cooking process. When reheating the soup, be sure to mix it to a smooth consistency once again, adding in more chicken stock if it becomes too thick.

 

Using Frank’s Red Hot is a must for this soup (or anything chicken wing related – trust me on this one). This soup will have quite a kick to it, so add less Frank’s if necessary.

Another must for this soup is homemade croutons. Crackers are fine for most soups, but croutons take it to a whole other level – and this is how they serve it at Danny’s.

 

Homemade croutons are super quick and simple to make:

Homemade Croutons

 

1. Slice a crusty loaf of bread into small cubes; place in a bowl.

 

2. Coat with olive oil. Toss with sea salt and garlic powder.

 

3. Place on parchment-lined cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes.
