Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

I think i’ve mentioned that since my second baby I seem to have developed a new love for buffalo sauce. The problem is that it is usually served on a fried wing and full of butter. Awhile back I made a lightened up grilled buffalo chicken, you can get that one here.

So keeping with the idea of lightening up a classically not light dish I made these delicious spicy Buffalo Chicken Meatballs. So how’d I lighten these up? Well, I used lean ground chicken, baked them in the oven and only used 1 Tbsp of butter in the sauce. I served these spicy balls over some mashed potatoes (made with homemade chicken broth) and roasted veggies.

Ingredients

1 lb lean ground chicken
1 egg
3/4 cup breadcrumbs
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1/2 cup Franks Red Hot
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 Tbsp butter
salt & pepper

Preparation

1. In a bowl mix together the ground chicken, egg, breadcrumbs, garlic powder, salt and pepper until well combined. Form into approx 1- 1 1/2 inch meatballs.
2. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for approx 18-20 minutes at 375 degrees.
3. While the meatballs are baking you can get the sauce made. In a saucepan add the red hot, chicken broth and butter. Simmer for about 10 minutes.
4. Coat the cooked meatballs with the buffalo sauce.
