Whether the big game is on or you're hosting a card night at home, unique appetizers are always appreciated. These buffalo chicken meatballs offer tangy, spicy and refreshing flavors when covered with a drizzle of ranch or blue cheese dressing. These mini bites are so popular, you'll definitely need to make several batches. Because they can be served hot or cold and prepared in less than 30 minutes, this won't be a problem.
Although buffalo wings are usually deep-fried and drenched in sauce, this recipe calls for the meatballs to be baked and just lightly tossed in the buffalo sauce. Ground chicken is naturally lower in fat and calories than ground beef or pork, keeping these bites on the slimmer side. Make this an "authentic" wing experience by serving the meatballs with fresh celery and carrot sticks. These are popular with both kids and adults — anyone who's a fan of buffalo wings!
