Prep: 10Cook: 20Total: 30 minutes
Yield 1 full dish 1x


  • 2 12.5 oz cans of chicken or 2.5 cups of finely shredded chicken breasts (or rotisserie chicken)
  • 1 8oz package light cream cheese or Neufchatel, softened.
  • 1/2 cup Franks hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 3/4 cup cheddar cheese for topping
  • optional toppings: green onion, blue cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400F and grease a baking dish. You can use any round or square dish around 8×8. If using bigger, reduce cooking time.
  2. In a large bowl, shred chicken with fork.
  3. Add in softened cream cheese, hot sauce, mozzarella cheese, and greek yogurt and stir until combined.
  4. Mix in green onion, garlic powder, and onion powder.
  5. Pour into greased baking dish. Top with cheddar cheese.
  6. Bake in oven for 16-20 minutes or until bubbly throughout.
  7. Top with blue cheese and more green onion and serve immediately. I like to serve mine with veggies and tortilla chips.
