Ingredients

  • ¾ cup hot sauce (such as Frank's® RedHot ®)

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese

  • 2 tablespoons blue cheese dressing (such as Naturally Fresh® Lite)

  • 1 ½ pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast

  • ½ (8 ounce) package shredded Cheddar cheese (Optional)

  • 3 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese (Optional)

Directions

  1. Heat a slow cooker on Low. Add hot sauce, cream cheese, and blue cheese dressing; mix until combined. Add chicken breasts; cook until fork-tender and no longer pink in the center, at least 4 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  3. Pull chicken meat apart with a fork; stir into the sauce. Transfer chicken mixture to a baking pan. Top with Cheddar cheese and blue cheese.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until top is golden brown and bubbly, about 15 minutes.
