    Buffalo Chicken Wings are a classic game time appetizer. Perfectly fried (or baked) for optimal crunchiness, tossed in a mixture of butter and spices to produce a finger lickin’, sweat producing, nose running appetizer, how can you go wrong?

    I love wings, but hate the mess of eating them, so I frequently will order or make a boneless version. The boneless version usually required utensils, which adds a whole element to a finger food spread.

    The answer: Buffalo Chicken Meatballs!

    Chicken is a little more difficult to make into a meatball because it does not have as much fat as beef, but with enough binder you can roll anything into a bite size ball!

    Please beware that this recipe isn’t for the lover of a mild wing…or one who even asks “is that hot?” It is hot and you will break a sweat. I used premade Buffalo Wing Sauce, however you can easily make your own to suit your taste buds.

    Wing sauces break up into two categories: butter base and vinegar base. Butter bases are generally more mild. You can get even crazier and use ranch butter to make your sauce.

    Vinegar base from scratch is a little more difficult and you are better off buying a bottled variety for time and ease.

    I blended blue cheese dressing into my Buffalo Chicken Meatball sauce, but also topped them with some fresh crumbled blue cheese and parsley. While I prefer chicken, you can also use ground turkey. You can also use Ranch dressing.

    Ingredients

    Instructions

    • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9×13 glass baking dish with cooking spray. Ground chicken doesn’t have a lot of fat, so you run the risk of sticking.
    • In a large mixing bowl combine ground chicken though minced dried onion. With very clean heads or wearing non-powder latex gloves, mix thoroughly.
    • Form 2 inch meatballs with your hands. Because the amounts of water added to ground chicken vary you may need to add extra breadcrumbs to help bind.
    • Bake for 20 minutes, or until outsides are fully cooked. Meanwhile, combine 1 cup buffalo wing sauce and 2 tablespoons blue cheese in a medium sauce pan. Heat and stir over medium heat until combined.
    • Add meatballs to sauce, Simmer for an additional 20 minutes. Sprinkle with crumbled blue cheese and serve hot!
