  • Brush the chicken with the olive oil and grill until just marked on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Flip and brush evenly with the hot sauce mixture. Continue grilling, turning as needed and brushing with the sauce, until well-marked and cooked through, about 10 more minutes.
  • Transfer to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes, then cut into bite-size pieces. Toss with the reserved hot sauce mixture. Puree 3/4 cup blue cheese and the sour cream in a blender until smooth.
  • Add half of the blue cheese dressing to the bowl with the chicken; add the sliced celery and celery leaves, red onion and carrot and toss. Divide the lettuce wedges and chicken salad among plates.
  • Drizzle with the remaining dressing and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup blue cheese.
