Ingredients

Chicken Meatballs

  • 2 lbs Ground Chicken or turkey meat
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • Cups Panko Breadcrumbs divided
  • 1 Cup Hot Sauce divided
  • ¼ Cup Chopped Green Onion
  • 1 Tsp Garlic Powder
  • ½ Tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Freshly Chopped Parsley

Blue Cheese Dip:

  • ½ Cup Crumbled Blue Cheese
  • ½ Cup Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp White or Red Wine Vinegar
  • Kosher salt and pepper, to taste
  • Optional sides: celery, cucumber and carrot sticks

Instructions

  • Start by preparing a dip, in a small serving bowl, whisk yogurt, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Add crumbled blue cheese, gently fold and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Next preheat the oven to 400F and line a large baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Crack eggs into a bowl and lightly whisk for 30 seconds with a fork. In a large mixing bowl, combine ground meat, green onions, 1 cup panko, beaten eggs, and 1/3 cup of hot sauce.
  • Add onion powder, garlic powder, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Using your clean hands, mix the meat until all the ingredients are incorporated and distributed evenly throughout the meat.
  • You can also use a large wooden spoon or a spatula to mix. Now rub your hands with some oil and pinch off a piece of meat mixture (about 1tablespoon). Gently roll the meat between your palms to form 1-1/2-inch meatballs.
  • Dip the meatballs into the remaining panko breadcrumbs, gently pressing to coat on all sides.
  • Place the meatballs into the prepared baking tray and lightly spray with cooking oil spray. Bake for 12 minutes until nicely golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and pour the remaining hot sauce on top. Toss to coat evenly, place the dish back into the oven and bake for an additional 5-6 minutes, or until cooked through.
  • Serve the buffalo balls with the blue cheese dip and your favorite veggie sticks. Enjoy!
