Buffalo Chicken Meatballs
- 2 Pounds Ground Chicken
- 1 Egg
- 1/2 Cup Breadcrumbs (Gluten free, see below)
- 2 Cups buffalo sauce
- 8 Cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 Cup scallions
- 1/2 Cup Parmesan cheese
- 1 Teaspoon Red Pepper flake
- 1 Teaspoon onion powder
- 1 Teaspoon salt
- Take off all of your rings. Preheat oven to 425 deg.
- Set aside 1 1/2 cups of the buffalo sauce and 1/2 of the garlic. Combine everything else into a large bowl. Mix gently until combined.
- Line two baking sheets with foil, dressed with non-stick spray. Make meatballs. I use an ice cream scoop, and I’ll weigh mine to make sure each is ~2 oz (yes, I really do). Ball and put on the cookie sheets. You should get ~18 meatballs.
- Spray tops of meatballs with cooking spray lightly. Bake for 10 minutes, then rotate pans in oven. Bake for another ~10 minutes or until 165 deg F in the center.
- As meat cooks, combine reserved buffalo sauce and garlic in small saucepan. Heat on low for 5-10 minutes or until everything you own smells like garlic.
- Once meatballs are cooked, serve immediately topped with garlic-buffalo sauce. Eat.
