2poundsboneless, skinless chicken breasts(4 medium sized breasts)
1/2cupbuffalo hot sauce
Salt & pepperto taste
1cupfreshly shredded Mozzarella cheese
1/2cupBlue cheese crumblesoptional
Sliced green onionsfor garnish (optional)
Ranch dressingfor serving (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Place chicken breasts in a large ziploc bag or between two pieces of plastic wrap and lightly pound until they are of even thickness.
Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with nonstick cookie spray. Place chicken breasts in the dish side by side.
Pour buffalo sauce on top of the chicken (use more or less to your taste).
Top evenly with shredded Mozzarella cheese.
Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and registers 165 degrees on a meat thermometer. (Depending on the thickness of the meat, this could take a few minutes longer).
Let stand for 5 minutes, then serve garnished with blue cheese crumbles and sliced green onions.
*Blue cheese fans can add blue cheese crumbles before baking so they will melt with the mozzarella - so yummy!
