Creamy Buffalo Chicken - low carb

Who doesn't love buffalo chicken dip, right? But what do you eat it with? I, for one, detest celery so... Why not just make it into a main dish? Here it is: 

1lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 1/2 ounces cream cheese, softened (a little over 1/8th of the lg brick)
1/4 cup bleu cheese dressing (less carbs than ranch)
1-2 tablespoons of frank's hot sauce (eyeball it)
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Place chicken in a casserole dish greased with cooking spray
  3. Bake for 20-25 min
  4. Meanwhile in a microwave safe dish, melt cream cheese (about 30 seconds)
  5. Stir until very smooth, then whisk in Ranch dressing and hot sauce.
  6. Stir in shredded cheese.
  7. Place in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time until the cheese is melted.
  8. When the chicken is done, spread over chicken in baking dish.
