I would think about combining those ingredients with a short pasta form in a baked casserole. I would add in a good melting cheese, maybe fontina or gouda.

You could also make a red pepper and chicken souffle. Make a bechamel with butter, flour and whole milk (4 tbsp butter, 4 tbsp flour, 1 1/2 cups milk) - Once it's thicken, simmer for a minute. Off the heat, stir in 4 to 6 egg yolks, about 1 cup of the red pepper soup and 1 cup diced chicken. Separately, beat 4-6 whites to soft peaks. Fold 1/3 into the bechamel mixture, then fold in the rest. You can make this part ahead of time. Place in a 375 degree oven, then turn heat down to 350. Bake for 30-45 minutes, until the souffle is puffed and golden brown. Use either a large souffle mold or 6 individual ramekins.

You could add the chicken with the red pepper soup with some cooked rice or orzo for another take on soup.

These are all great ideas! Thank you! My big concern was how cream based the soup is and how it would hold up once reinvented in a new dish.

I suggest mixing it into and topping a meatloaf. Theoretically, the pepper would provide a nice flavor.

I could see mixing the soup in with a peperonata and simmering gently for a bit, then adding the chicken in and serving over rice.
