Made these for the Bronco game yesterday and they were delish! The meatballs are a somewhat healthier alternative to pounding down a couple lbs. of buffalo wings, and they’re fairly idiot proof because you can make them right in the Crock-Pot! BAM!
1 pound ground chicken
3/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
2 green onions, thinly sliced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
3/4 cup buffalo sauce
1/4 cup blue cheese dressing
Preheat oven to 400. Spray baking sheet with some oil.
In a large bowl, combine ground chicken, Panko, egg, garlic and onion powder and green onions; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Using a wooden spoon or clean hands, stir until well combined. Roll the mixture into 1 1/4-to-1 1/2-inch meatballs, forming about 24 meatballs.
Place meatballs onto prepared baking sheet and bake for 4-5 minutes, or until all sides are browned.
Place meatballs into a slow cooker. Add buffalo sauce and gently toss to combine. Cover and cook on low heat for 2 hours.
Stupid easy right?
Serve immediately, drizzled with blue cheese dressing celery and carrots – if desired.
