Perfect for football season! Baked chicken meatballs with minced celery and carrots hidden inside, topped with hot sauce, and homemade blue cheese dressing – yum!

Ingredients

  • 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)

Instructions

  • 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.
