Buffalo Chicken Meatballs Recipe

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs Recipe

I like to make these game-day appetizer meatballs with blue cheese or ranch salad dressing for dipping. If I make them for a meal, I often skip the dressing and serve with blue cheese polenta on the side. —Amber Massey, Argyle, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup panko (Japanese) bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup plus 1/2 cup Louisiana-style hot sauce, divided
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 pound lean ground chicken
  • Reduced-fat blue cheese or ranch salad dressing, optional

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, combine bread crumbs, 1/3 cup hot sauce, celery and egg white. Add chicken; mix lightly but thoroughly.
  • 2. Shape into twenty-four 1-in. balls. Place on a greased rack in a shallow baking pan. Bake 20-25 minutes or until cooked through.
  • 3. Toss meatballs with remaining hot sauce. If desired, drizzle with salad dressing just before serving. Yield: 2 dozen.

"These were fantastic. The celery added a nice crunch and texture. I used chipotle hot sauce and served with blue cheese and ranch dressing. These make a great sandwich too. Thank you! I love simple and quick and delicious recipes. A keeper!"

"Very good, but to make them taste more like real wings I add some butter to hot sauce for coating"

"So quick and easy! We served with an iceberg lettuce salad. I didn't add extra hot sauce at the end and they weren't too spicy for my son. Will definitely make again."

"Loved these! I'm a huge fan of buffalo wings, and this recipe is a perfect way to enjoy a healthier version of buffalo chicken. I used buffalo sauce instead of Louisiana-style sauce. Delicious!"

"A great healthy substitute for those who like the taste of buffalo chicken wings, but are trying to eat healthier. I did substitute ground turkey breast for the chicken. I will definitely make again!"
