Ingredients

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

  • 2 lb ground Chicken
  • 4 slices White Bread (crust removed)
  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • 1/4 cup Franks Hot Sauce
  • 2/3 cup diced Celery
  • 1/2 cup diced Onion
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground Black Pepper

Buffalo Sauce

  • 1/2 cup Frank's Red Hot Sauce
  • 6 tablespoons Butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce

Serving

  • 1 cup Blue Cheese Dressing

Instructions

Meatballs

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Gently tear or chop bread slices into cubes and add to a dish with milk and hot sauce. Ensure bread is evenly saturated with liquid and let sit for 10 minutes while preparing remaining ingredients.
  • Gently crumble ground chicken into a large bowl and add remaining meatball ingredients. When bread has soaked for 10 minutes, add that to the meatball bowl as well, and gently combine all ingredients together,
  • Scoop out two tablespoons of meatball mixture at a time and gently roll into balls and set on a rimmed baking sheet. (will yield ~36 meatballs)
  • Place meatballs in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
  • Optionally: For added texture and color, you can finish cooking meatballs under the broiler.
  • When meatballs have finished cooking, toss them in buffalo sauce and serve with blue cheese dressing on the side.

Buffalo Sauce

  • Melt butter and combine with hot sauce and Worcestershire.
