Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

Spicy, cheesy, and perfectly poppable, stuffed Buffalo Chicken Meatballs are the ultimate appetizer to serve for the big game. I mix 99% fat-free ground chicken with a blend of homemade Ranch seasoning, stuffed with salty Feta cheese, then coated in spicy, buttery, buffalo wing sauce. Serve with wooden picks to enjoy all the flavor of a buffalo wing without the muss and fuss.

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

Ingredients

  • 1/4 small red onion, minced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound 99% fat-free ground chicken breast
  • 1 (4 ounce) block Feta cheese, cut into 24 (1/2-inch) cubes (will have 8 leftover cubes)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup buffalo wing sauce

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Add red onion, garlic, egg white, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs and seasonings to a large bowl then stir with a fork to combine. Add ground chicken then mix until combined – do not over-mix or meatballs will be tough.
  3. Divide chicken mixture into quarters, then each quarter into 4 balls. Press a cube of Feta into the center of each ball then close mixture around cheese to seal. Place meatballs onto a buttered cooling rack set on top of a baking sheet, then bake for 20 minutes.
  4. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat then add buffalo wing sauce and stir to combine. Add cooked meatballs to skillet then use a spoon to coat in sauce. Place a lid on top and turn heat to low to keep warm.

Yield: 16 meatballs
