Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

"Buffalo Chicken Wings have been a popular bar food for years, deep fried and slathered in Buffalo Hot Sauce. The heat from the cayenne pepper sauce buffered with melted butter is the perfect eat-as much-as-you-can appetizer for snacking. This recipe for Buffalo Chicken Meatballs is a fusion of the Buffalo Wing appetizer and Italian Meatballs. The addition of herbs and spices into this dish makes for an amazing treat you’ll want to make again and again."

Yield: 12-15 meatballs


1.75 pounds chicken thighs (boneless & skinless)

2 cups Italian breadcrumbs

1 medium onion, diced

1 egg

2 Tbsp. minced garlic

1 ½ cups parmesan cheese

1 Tbsp. Italian seasoning

¾ cup Hot Sauce

½ cup Butter

Blue cheese salad dressing

Place chicken and egg in food processor and chop.
