BBQ Chicken Pizza Soup!

Hi everyone, so glad it’s Thursday! Weekend is almost here. Can hardly believe this is the last week of school for the boys. This year seriously flew. We are looking forward to summer though, can’t wait actually πŸ™‚

This soup was created for a fun Challenge going on right now on my Giveaway page. Check it out HERE πŸ™‚Β  I LOVE this soup. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out. It was one of those ideas that sounded great in my mind and I was hoping it tasted as good as I imagined. I was thrilled when I took a bite, it’s delicious. The soup got 2 thumbs up from the boys too. Lately they are tough to please, so I was glad when they gobbled up their bowls.

So, think BBQ Chicken Pizza in soup form. It really tastes just like a BBQ Chicken Pizza, I will be making this soup on a regular basis now. The best part is, you can get it done in about 15 minutes. LOVE it!

Hope you enjoy πŸ™‚

Here are your ingredients. I ended up using only 1 can of corn, so disregard the second can πŸ™‚

Chop up your onions…

Saute until softened….

Add your corn….

Add your chicken…

Give it a good stir….


Next comes the chicken broth…

And some BBQ sauce, just a little goes a long way. I only used 1/4 Cup for the whole pot. That was perfect.

Add lots of fresh cilantro then simmer πŸ™‚

Now, eat!!


BBQ Chicken Pizza Soup

2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 medium onion, finely chopped

2 Tablespoons fresh minced garlic

11 oz can corn with peppers, drained

2 12 oz cans Swanson’s Chicken, drained

1 1/2 Cups Chicken Broth

1/2 Cup BBQ Sauce

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper

1/4 teaspoon Lawry’s Garlic Salt

1/2 Cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped

1. Heat oil into a medium pot over medium heat. When hot, saute onions for 5 minutes or until softened. Stir in garlic, corn and chicken breast; mix to combine. Pour in chicken broth, BBQ sauce, salt, pepper, garlic salt and cilantro leaves. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes or until ready to serve. Garnish each bowl with a fresh sprig of cilantro.

4-6 servings

    What a fabulous idea! This would be a great way to use leftover chicken, although I’m going to have to wait for cooler weather to try it (it is just too darn hot here in Maryland-yesterday was 96 degrees)! This will definately be a “must try” soup for Fall! πŸ™‚

    I totally want to make this, only I’d probably slow-cook a whole chicken and then use some of that in the soup. Yum!

    Andrea says:

    To the comment left about adding taco seasoning… I actually did! I added a couple more ingredients as well.. I added pinto beans, taco seasoning and fire roasted tomatoes, and crinkle cut carrots. I actually used rotisserie (spelling ?) as well. It was FABULOUS! Thanks for the idea on the BBQ soup- keep the recipes coming- love them all πŸ™‚

    This looks so good! What a fantastic idea. I buy that canned chicken by the truckload at Costco for my boys and have run out of ideas for it…this is perfect!

    Jessica B. says:

    Made this soup last night despite 95 degree heat! Topped it with a sprinkling of sharp cheddar and served with pizza breadsticks for dipping. YUM YUM YUM!

  26. 26

    I made this the other night, and it was insanely good. The only changes I made were (1) to add some orzo to make the soup “stretch” (would’ve added a can of black beans if I’d had one), and (2) no cilantro (didn’t have any, and don’t really like the taste). Husband had seconds, and I was really looking forward to lunch the next day to have the leftovers…until I saw he’d taken them with him to work. So I give this an A+.

    Hilary says:

    Great recipe! I made a couple of changes because I didn’t have a can of peppers and corn so I just used frozen corn and chopped up a green pepper and sauted it with the onion. I also had some leftover rice in the fridge so I threw that in there too for a little more substance! Turned out great! Served it with Garlic French Bread!

    I made this yesterday for lunch, but it wasn’t much of a fit for my family. I think that chipotle in adobo sauce might be a good substitute for the bbq sauce though.

    Lizzie says:

    I made this last night. I used real shredded chicken breasts instead of canned. And I used fresh red and green peppers because it’s what I had on hand. I also added some red pepper flakes for heat. I liked it, but my fiance adored it. Thanks πŸ™‚

    Alicia Clinton says:

    So I am a few months late of the original post on this soup, but when you lumped it in with a bunch of other soups to try it was the winner from the stack! My (very sick) hubby at the time needed some hot soups and I knew this would work for that left over rotisserie chicken I had, we added black beans, did frozen corn instead of can, YUMMY! Thanks for the inspiration Jenny, I am finding myself consumed by your recipe options.

    Kendray says:

    Made this for lunch today. Only had frozen corn on hand,and I hate cilantro, but other than that I didn’t deviate from the recipe much. I did add a little more liquid than it called for, but that was just a function of not wanting to toss out part of a can of chicken broth.

    This soup is so tasty!! I’m not a huge soup person but this was a home run. Big flavor, hearty without being too chunky, amd minimal effort. Will definitely make again.

    Dana says:

    This would be an ideal way to use left over chicken or even turkey.
    Those rotisserie chicken from the market as well. Thanks for sharing your recipes.

  73. 73
    Hope says:

    I minced 4 large garlic cloves and boiled/shredded four boneless, skinless, chicken breasts. I had to increase the chicken broth by 1 cup (probably more next time) & used the full 1/2 cup bbq sauce as stated in the recipe-not what you recommended in the blog post. Rave reviews from picky hubby & kids!

    Julie John says:

    This had a yummy unique flavor. I converted it to IP by sauteing the onions, then adding everything. (Instead of canned chicken, I put mostly thawed raw chicken-cut into smaller pieces so it cooked faster) Manual for 10- natural release for 6. Shred the chicken up and you are good to go
