BUFFALO CHICKEN MEATBALLS

Recipe created by Christina Strudwick, MS, RD, CSSD, LD

Chicken meatballs are a tasty way to enjoy a popular food in a healthy way. Chicken is a lean protein which means that it is low in fat. These meatballs can be wrapped in a whole-wheat tortilla, paired with a whole grain pasta and veggies or taken on the road in your mini fridge for a quick, tasty, healthy dinner!

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground chicken breast
  • 3/4 cup Panko
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 3/4 cup buffalo sauce (or your favorite hot sauce!)
  • Bleu cheese dressing (to drizzle on top or for dipping)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine panko, egg, garlic powder, onion powder and green onions; season with salt and pepper to taste. Once it is completely mixed, add in ground chicken and mix well. Roll the mixture into 1 1/4 – 1 1/2-inch meatballs, forming about 24 meatballs.
  3. Place meatballs onto prepared baking sheet and bake for 4-5 minutes, or until all sides are browned. Take baking sheet out and rotate meatballs.
  4. Add buffalo sauce and gently toss to combine. Place sheet bake into the oven for 10-15 minutes. 
  5. Serve immediately, drizzled with bleu cheese dressing, if desired.
