BBQ Chicken Soup - 52 Soup Recipes

Pin It Now!

I keep saying a new favorite soup, but this certainly became a new favorite the minute I tried it.  All those summer BBQ tastes, the sauce, chicken, sweet corn, onions... all with a delicious complex broth.  I served this night of Halloween.  We sit at the bottom of our drive way along with a couple of other neighbors and make a small event of handing out candy.  This soup kept the chill out.  The little extra heat from Cajun SPices, BBQ sauce and a few drops of hot sauce kept us toasty warm inside.

If I were serving this inside I would have added a dollop of Sour Cream.  Next time I may add a few more vegetables (Green Peppers, Celery).  But as is, it was fantastic.  Hearty warming and delicious.  The BBQ sauce flavored broth was exactly what I wanted...

OK... Here's what I did...

  • 1-1/2 Cups Chopped Carrots
  • 3 Cups Chicken Stock
  • 2 Cans Sweet Corn, drained
  • 3 TBS Worcestershire Sauce
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste
  • 1 Whole Rotisserie Chicken, deboned and diced
  • 1 Cup Your Favorite BBQ Sauce
  • 1 tsp Cajun Spice Mix
  • Several drops of Tabasco Sauce, to Taste
  • French Fried Onions as Garnish
Cooking Directions
  1. I a large ceramic lined Dutch Oven or large skillet, heat the Olive Oil over medium high heat.
  2. Add the Onions and Carrots to the oil and saute for about 5 minutes, until the onions become translucent.
  3. Add the Garlic and saute for one additional minute.
  4. Add the Chicken Stock, Worcestershire Sauce and Corn and stir to combine.

  1. This soup looks very tasty! Thanks for the recipe...what did you serve it with~(pictured on the plate)?

  2. This soup sounds good and I have a bunch of smoked chicken in the freezer.

    If you like the regular Durkee or French's fried onion rings, try a brand called something like Loeb's Onion Crunch. They are smaller pieces but so much crispier and tastier. I don't know what they do different but they are my favorite, great for sprinkling on soups, salads and burgers.
