Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

Another week, another chicken meatball in this house. This time, these meatballs are buffalo chicken style. I’ve always been a fan of buffalo chicken: wings, boneless bites, chicken dip, etc. It was a no brainer when I looked in my cabinet and saw The New Primal buffalo seasoning, the prompt for me to make these chicken meatballs. I’ve been using The New Primal products for quite some time (probably before I had my food blog) and what I love about The New Primal is their consistency with quality ingredients and flavor. Some of my favorites include their Classic marinade, their dijon mustard, and their all purpose seasoning.

I wasn’t always a fan of ground chicken, so now that I’ve found my groove with making them, I don’t plan on stopping. The trick is to not overmix and work the ingredients too much, which will then cause the meatballs to feel tough when biting into them. This recipe is similar to the BBQ Chicken meatballs, with some slight variations.

California Olive Ranch

Here’s what you need:

  • 1lb ground chicken
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup parmesan
  • 2 tbsp The New Primal buffalo chicken seasoning
  • garlic powder
  • onion salt
  • onion powder
  • Trader Joe’s Chili Lime seasoning
  • dried basil
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Preheat the oven to 375º and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. In a large mixing bowl, add the ground chicken, egg, seasonings, buffalo seasoning, breadcrumbs, and parmesan cheese. Mix to just combine all ingredients (this works better when using your hands – a trick is to use four fingers and a rake to “rake” the ingredients together). Once the meat has come together, form meatballs with your hands (about two tbsp of meat per meatball). Place on the baking sheet and sprinkle a little more of the buffalo seasoning right on top. Bake for 30 minutes and toss in your favorite hot sauce (another brand we love is Siete, so we used their hot sauce for the meatballs). These puppies pair super well with mash potatoes, french fries, or a simple side rice and veggies. Enjoy!
