I am a sucker for Buffalo sauce but the idea of biting into greasy chicken skin makes me a little nauseous . These Buffalo chicken meatballs have all of the flavor of chicken wings without any greasy guilt. They are loaded with carrots and celery as well so you can even call them a health food!
1 pound ground cicken
1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs (gluten free crumbs for GF option)
1 stalk celery
2 green onions
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup Frank's Buffalo Sauce
blue cheese or blue cheese dressing, optional
Preheat oven to 350. Chop the celery, green onions and carrots into very fine pieces. A food processor works great. Add the remaining ingredients and shape into 1 inch balls. I use a cookie scoop and roll by hand. You can add some blue cheese crumbles also if desired or a couple T. of blue cheese dressing to the mix. Line on a greased or parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes. This makes about 25 balls.
Drizzle with additional Buffalo sauce and/or blue cheese dressing if desired.
I served this over brown rice that was cooked in bone broth and garlic roasted veggies.
