Buffalo Chicken Meatballs
Oven baked goodness that satisfies your buffalo cravings.
What needs to be said about these? Buffalo Chicken? I am all in….
Makes about 18 meatballs, 6 servings, 3 per serving
- 1lb ground chicken
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 sprigs of green onion, finely chopped
- 1 celery stalk, trimmed and finely diced
- 1 tablespoon almond or coconut flour
- 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp pink sea salt
- 1 tsp ground black pepper
- 1 cup of buffalo wing sauce
Preheat the oven to 400. Spray a sheet pan with non stick cooking spray or grease with Olive oil, coconut oil or butter. (I use Olive oil)
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients, minus the buffalo sauce. Mix well.
Use your hands to form 2″ balls, mixture will be sticky. If desired set out a small amount of almond or coconut flour to dust your palms with. I personally just pushed through it and made a mess all over my hands. Another option is to refrigerate for about 15 mins. before rolling.
Place meatballs on a sheet pan. Bake for 15 minutes or until center has reached 160º.
Remove meatballs from the oven. Place in a skillet or pot over medium low heat. Coat with buffalo sauce. Continue to cook just until sauce is warmed.
These are great topped with pureed cauliflower mixed with a ranch packet. \
