Buffalo Chicken Meatballs – Clean+Delicious®

If any of of you guys are looking for a clean and delicious snack for Super Bowl Sunday, these Spicy Buffalo Chicken Meatballs may just be for you! This is yet another recipe from the archives that I just couldn’t resist bringing to your attention because it is the perfect Super Bowl snack whether you are cooking for a couple or cooking for a crowd. It captures all the heart and soul of traditional buffalo wings without the excess calories or saturated fats.

Although this video was suppose to be posted BEFORE the Super Bowl, I figured, “Hey… better late then never, right?”. Besides, you don’t need a football game as an excuse to make these Spicy Buffalo Chicken Meatballs (I promise)!

My husband and I LOVED these. We made them three times in one week after shooting the video… they are addictive! If you like wings I guarantee that you will like this recipe:).

And don’t forget to serve them with some home-made, lower-fat, blue cheese dressing.

Spicy Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

Yield: 16 meatballs

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground white meat chicken
  • 1/2 small onion, grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1 tsp of smoked Paprika
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce (I use Wing-Time)
  • Garnishes: Blue Cheese Dressing
  • A couple of handfuls celery sticks
  • A couple of handfuls carrot sticks

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400F.

In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken, onion, garlic, parsley, paprika and cayenne.  Season with salt and black pepper.

Take about two tablespoons of meat mixture and roll between the palms of your hand to form a meatball about the size of a golf ball.

Place meatballs on a rimmed baking sheet lightly coated with cooking spray.  Pop them in the oven and cook for 15-20 minutes or until they are cooked through.

While the meatballs are baking, heat the hot sauce in a  large skillet.  Toss the baked meatballs in the hot sauce to coat.

Serve the meatballs with celery and carrot sticks and some blue cheese dressing for dipping!!  Enjoy!

Makes 16 meatballs.

    Hi Dani – I made them today, and it turned out absolutely awesome. I did some modifications for the sauce – Instead of using the hot sauce, I prepared one myself: Caramelized onion (without oil) with a bit of salt and Brown Sugar; Added sun dried tomato and cooked for 2 mts, and then blended the mixture. It was awesome with the balls. Thanks Dani!

    These look delicious! I want to try them this week, but 16 meatballs is a bit much for only two people. Do they freeze well? How long can I keep them in the freezer? Thanks so much!

      I haven’t tried but my guess is they would freeze really well and stay for months once frozen.
