Description

That’s right, Buffalo Chicken … Meatballs! Just the thought of them makes my mouth water—how about yours?

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Boneless Chicken Breasts (or Ground Chicken)
  • 1 whole Egg
  • ¾ cups Bread Crumbs (more Or Less Depending On Size Egg Used)
  • 1-½ cup Your Favorite Wing Sauce, Plus 2 Tablespoons For The Meatball Mixture
  • 1 Tablespoon Milk
  • 2 dashes Salt And Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Crumbled Blue Cheese (optional)
  • ¾ cups Blue Cheese Dressing (more Or Less Based On Your Taste For Blue Cheese)

Preparation

Place chicken in a food processor and pulse until chopped up (6-8 pulses should do it). (I am sure ground chicken will do just fine, but I wanted a firmer texture so I ground it myself.) Place ground chicken in a large bowl, add in egg, breadcrumbs, 2 tablespoons wing sauce, milk, salt and pepper and blue cheese if using. Mix it all up well with your hands (my kids LOVE to help with this part). Form into balls (not too big) and place on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Bake at 350ºF for 15-20 minutes.

In a large pot combine the remaining 1 1/2 cups wing sauce and blue cheese dressing. Heat it through, stirring often. Once meatballs are out of the oven, add them gently to the sauce and heat through for a bit. Serve alone or with a roll for a sandwich and enjoy! Include a small bowl of crumbled blue cheese for folks to sprinkle on their sandwiches.

Note: Feel free to make your own wing sauce and or blue cheese dressing. Depending on the time I have, I do or I don’t. Also, if you are not a lover of blue cheese (like me) you can substitute ranch dressing for the blue cheese dressing in the pub sauce.

Enjoy!

we really enjoyed these meatballs for dinner last week! I just didn’t know how to serve them or what to eat with them. They’re like junk food appetizers at your local chain restaurant, so we had a junk food dinner night. That’s always fun to do-like twice a year!
