Buffalo Chicken Noodle Soup

Let's face it. It will never be really be soup weather where I live, so I have to get my fill of warm, comforting soups when I'm wearing T-shirts and pretending it's cold. I've previously made a more gourmet version of buffalo chicken soup with blue cheese biscuits and all, but I wanted a more everyday version, so I combined the idea behind that soup with chicken noodle soup. I've never made plain chicken noodle soup (though I imagine now I should, given that I have a giant partially used bag of egg noodles in my cabinet), but this version is crazy awesome and perfect for football season!
