Perfect for football season! Baked chicken meatballs with minced celery and carrots hidden inside, topped with hot sauce, and homemade blue cheese dressing – yum!
- oil spray (I used my mister)
- 1 1/4 lb ground chicken
- 1/4 cup panko crumbs
- 1 large egg
- 2 scallions (chopped)
- 1/3 cup finely minced celery
- 1/3 cup finely minced carrot
- 1 clove crushed garlic
- kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
- 1/3 cup Franks Hot sauce
- 1/4 cup skinny blue cheese dressing (optional)
- finely chopped celery leaf for garnish (optional)
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Lightly spray a non-stick baking sheet with oil.
In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken, panko crumbs, egg, scallions, celery, carrot and garlic; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Using clean hands, mix until combined. Roll the mixture (1/8 cup each) into 26 round meatballs.
Place meatballs onto prepared baking sheet and bake until cooked through and golden, about 16 to 18 minutes.
Place the meatballs in a bowl, add the buffalo sauce and gently toss to combine.
Serve immediately, drizzled with blue cheese dressing, if desired.
