Start cooking

3 Tablespoons low-sodium hot pepper sauce
3 Tablespoons water
1 1/4 cups plain fat-free Greek yogurt, divided
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder, divided
2 cups shredded cooked chicken breast
1/2 cup plain fat-free cottage cheese
3/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella
1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoons dried parsley
6 Tablespoons sliced green onion, divided
1 jalapeño pepper, sliced (optional for garnish)
1 pound carrot sticks
1 pound celery sticks


Preheat the oven to 375° F.

In a small saucepan, whisk together hot pepper sauce, 1/4 cup Greek yogurt, apple cider vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder. Add water (up to 3 Tablespoons depending on your desired consistency). Bring to a simmer over medium heat.

Reduce heat to low and continue to simmer, whisking frequently to avoid burning, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
In a large bowl, combine the chicken, remaining Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, cooled hot sauce mixture and shredded mozzarella until combined. Add garlic powder, onion powder, dried parsley and 4 Tablespoons green onion and mix until evenly distributed.

Pour dip mixture into an 8 x 8-inch pan. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until bubbling. Top with remaining 2 Tablespoons sliced green onions and slices of jalapeño pepper, if desired. Serve warm with carrot and celery sticks.
