Yummy Buffalo Meatballs
I know I’ve said it already, but it is BLAZING HOT over here in AZ. So, I thought I’d match the temp outside and bring to you a HOT recipe today for Buffalo Chicken Meatballs.
It seems that people either love buffalo flavor or hate it, but fortunately our family LOVES the buffalo flavor. Maybe it’s the Mexican side in me, but I love anything with a good kick (although you can usually tame the hot buffalo flavor). Today’s meatball recipe can be spicy or mild, depending on how much sauce you use (just like our classic Hot Wings). If you like spicy, add more sauce. If not, you can easily tone down the spice by adding a little extra butter. Either way you make it, this meatball recipe is delicious, simple and perfect for any party or get together.
Buffalo Chicken Balls
If you’ve ever made meatballs before, you know they’re actually easier than you think. It just requires that your hands get a little dirty, but trust me – these are so worth it. When you are creating the meatballs, keep in mind that 1 pound of ground chicken can be shaped into 24 1-inch balls. Remember to taste test the sauce before you add it to your meatballs. If it’s too spicy, add a tablespoon of butter, at a time, to calm down that spice. Regardless of how spicy you decide to make them, you can guarantee they will be flavorful and so delicious!

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs recipe
These Buffalo Chicken Meatballs Are Easy To Make, So Full Of Flavor, And Packed With A Kick! They Make The Perfect Appetizer For Any Party Or Get Together, And You Can Decide Whether To Use More Or Less Sauce To Change The Spiciness!
- 3/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
- 1/3 cup Louisiana-style hot sauce, divided
- 1/2 cup butter melted
- 1 large egg white
- 1 lb lean ground chicken
- Blue cheese or ranch salad dressing (optional)
Melt butter in your ⅓ cup of hot sauce. This will make the sauce less spicy. If you prefer more spicy, skip this step or add less butter.
In a large bowl, combine bread crumbs, half of your hot sauce/butter combo, and egg white. Add chicken and gently mix. Shape into twenty-four 1-in. balls. Place on a greased baking pan.
Bake at 400 for 25-30 minutes or until cooked through.
Toss meatballs with remaining hot sauce. Enjoy with ranch dipping or by themselves. They are great either way!
