In Ammonia
The two react to form many toxic products, including chloramine, dichloramine, nitrogen trichloride and hydrazine. But, if the reaction goes through all the way, it forms non-toxic nitrogen. The equation is as followed:
NH3+NaOCl --> NH2Cl+NaOH
NH2Cl+NaOCl --> NHCl2+NaOH
NHCl2+NaOCl --> NCl3+NaOH

NH3+NH2Cl+NaOH --> N2H4+NaCl+H2O

N2H4+2NH2Cl --> 2NH4Cl+N2

I would not recommend it unless you have proper safety equipment, a fume hood and are doing it under supervision of a experienced chemist.
