Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

My husband loves buffalo wings so when I came accross this healthier version from Rachel Ray I had to give it a try. These Buffalo Chicken Meatballs were super moist with a little spice :) The best part is 4 meatballs were only 105 calories!!! Just pair them with sliced carrots, celery and light blue cheese and you'll feel like you are sitting at a bar with an order of wings.

1 lb ground chicken
1/2 small onion grated
2 cloves garlic, grated
1/2 cup parsley, chopped
extra virgin olive oil
2 TB butter
1/2 cup hot sauce (I used Franks)
bleu cheese dressing
baby carrots
celery sticks

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine ground chicken, onion, garlic and parsley and season with salt and pepper. Flatten the meat in the bowl and score it into 4 portions using the side of your hand. Shape each portion into 4 balls. Arrange the meatballs on a nonstick sheet pan and drizzel them with olive oil. Place the pan in the oven and bake the meatballs 10-12 minutes until cooked through and golden brown (I broiled mine for a couple minutes after cooking to give them a crispy coating).
  • While the meatballs are cooking melt the butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the hot sauch and whisk to combine. Toss baked meatballs in sauce to coat and serve.
