1 5-ounce bottle hot sauce (such as Frank’s RedHot)
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 rotisserie chicken, cut into pieces
1/2 cup sour cream
4 ounces crumbled blue cheese
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 small head iceberg lettuce, quartered and cored


In a small saucepan, over medium-low heat, warm the hot sauce. Stir in the butter and heat until melted.

Place the chicken pieces in a large bowl, pour the hot sauce mixture over the chicken, and toss.

In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, blue cheese, salt, pepper, and 2 1/2 tablespoons water. (If you prefer a thinner dressing, add more water, 1 teaspoon at a time.)

Divide the chicken and lettuce among individual plates. Drizzle the blue cheese dressing over the lettuce.
