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 🙂

This soup was created for a fun Challenge going on right now on my Giveaway page. Check it out HERE 🙂  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. I will be making this soup on a regular basis now. LOVE it!

Hope you enjoy 🙂

Adding a Few Drops of BBQ Sauce to the Soup

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

Cilantro Being Added to the Pot of Chicken Soup

Add lots of fresh cilantro then simmer 🙂

    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

  2. Hope

    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!

  3. Dana

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 🙂

    Hey Jenny! Major fan! We are not cilantro lovers, so any suggestions for a replacement herb? Thanks!

  8. Jane

    I just found this recipe and made it today. I loved the way the canned chicken shredded. I will use this kind of chicken in other soups. Thanks for this tip. Oh and by the way, the soup was delicious.

  9. Samantha Andersen

    Thank you. I linked your recipe to my very first Menu Plan Monday posting. I can’t wait to try it this week. We love quick and easy soup so I am super excited.
    Again! Thank you!

    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.

    I intend to throw this in my crockpot tonight while at football practice for 2 hours! Thanks Jenny. Your cookbook ….WOW. You must be so proud.

  12. Andrea

    I made this tonight for my boyfriend for dinner. It was so easy and so good! Thank you so much for an amazing recipe!

  13. Diana B.

    A friend made this and shared the link, so I checked it out…this looks DELICIOUS!! I think I may even try it this week in the crock-pot!! I will definitely be following your blog now!!

  14. Sarah

    We just made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious! Everyone loved it. Thanks for all the great recipes, I love your site.

    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!
