  • 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


  1. 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.
