Down South BBQ Chicken Soup

I love this soup because summer is all about BBQ in the backyard but fall is all about soups inside!  So this recipe brings the two together in a magical pot of goodness!  Mmm… BBQ Chicken Soup is just what you need.  I topped mine with some cornbread because I can’t have a hearty soup without some homemade cornbread.  If you wanted to be really authentic you could serve it with Texas Toast!

I was Afraid to Try It

My husband wanted me to make this, but I was a little afraid. BBQ in a soup?  But the best part is that you get to decide how much BBQ sauce goes into it!   You can make it as intense or subtle as you want.  I’m all about tasting as you go and making it my own.  I didn’t add too much BBQ sauce because I still wanted it to be fairly light and not too rich, but you can add as much as you want!

BBQ Chicken Soup that's perfect all year round!

Make Leftovers New Again

This is a great recipe for leftover meats!  Any extra chicken or turkey from Thanksgiving will work great in this soup!  I love the rotisserie chickens from Costco because they’e inexpensive and work great for quesadillas and sandwiches, but when I have leftovers I love to throw them in a recipe like this one that really transforms the meat.
