That sounds like a wonderful soup, thanks for the recipe and the calorie count!

wow this sounds good!!! thanks skittle. c&p'd.

i really like celery, so i'm inclined to even add a little more freshly chopped celery along with the blue cheese crumbles on top just before serving for added texture..

One thing I love about soup is how versatile it is. Want more or less celery? Sounds great! Like to sauté your veggies before adding the broth? Be my guest! A dash of cayenne pepper? Sure! Home made broth? Great! Store bought broth? Wow, done in a flash! Big pieces, small pieces, thick, thin, chunky, delicate, spicy, mild... The list goes on. With just a list of ingredients, no measurements, even most novice cooks can come up with a tasty soup. The main reason I listed the exact amounts I used was because I took the time to figure the calories. A lot of novice cooks are more comfortable starting with an exact recipe too, so that's a nice bonus for newer soup makers. Adapt it and make it your own to your heart's content. I just loved this soup so much I had to beat the recipe out of our chef at work (ok, I just asked nicely :p ) and I was sure someone else on here would appreciate the uniqueness of it.

I don't even like chicken but this looks yummy! Maybe I'll make it and fish out the chicken pieces for mine or just use a good chicken stock and leave the chicken?

This looks great. Any suggestions what I could use in place of blue cheese crumbles?

Hmmm... Some chopped up croutons? Ranch is garlicky right? Some people like buffalo and ranch, and croutons have garlic.

Sounds good though.
Since you dislike the celery texture, and Andy, I assume you have issues with the flavor, celery seed, or celery root (celriac) both would make good substitutions for the celery. You would get the flavor, but be able to control it to your own tastes, and lose the celery chunks to boot. And since celery flavor is required for this soup, you wouldn't be straying too far from the original recipe.

And Skittle, thanks for the recipe. This looks great. I might just have to take it to a pot luck one of these days, as I know my DW couldn't eat it because of the hot sauce. And I think I'd use Sriracha in mine. Like you said, it's soup. And I'm not crazy about Frank's. It's too vinegary for me.

Not always, Chief.

Skittle, I copied this recipe as in a weak moment SO said it sounded good despite it's being a cream soup (which she dislikes). I'm looking forward to making it.
