Buffalo Chicken Meatballs Recipe
Perfect for football season! Baked chicken meatballs with minced celery and carrots hidden inside, topped with hot sauce, and homemade blue cheese dressing – yum!
Amount Per Serving
oil spray (I used my mister)
1 1/4 lb ground chicken
1/4 cup panko crumbs
1 large egg
2 scallions, chopped
1/3 cup finely minced celery
1/3 cup finely minced carrot
1 clove crushed garlic
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/3 cup Franks Hot sauce
finely chopped celery leaf for garnish (optional)
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Lightly spray a non-stick baking sheet with oil.
In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken, panko crumbs, egg, scallions, celery, carrot and garlic; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Using clean hands, mix until combined. Roll the mixture (1/8 cup each) into 26 round meatballs.
Place meatballs onto prepared baking sheet and bake until cooked through and golden, about 16 to 18 minutes.
Place the meatballs in a bowl, add the buffalo sauce and gently toss to combine.
Serve immediately, drizzled with blue cheese dressing, if desired.
