Every once in a while I CRAVE Buffalo Wings. But they're so unhealthy!
I came across Key Ingredient and found this gem that is husband approved.
Warning - I have altered this recipe from the original.
What You Need:
2 Chicken Breasts
½ cup Panko Breadcrumbs
1 Stalk Celery
2 Green Onions
½ tso Garlic Powder
¼ tsp Salt
1 oz Crumbled Blue Cheese
½ cup Frank's Hot Sauce, divided
What to do:
-Preheat the oven to 350F.
-Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet (Easy, clean and less grease)
- Filet chicken breasts, cut the celery, carrot and green onion into large chunks and throw into a food processor. Pulse to chop into small bits.
- (I quickly sauteed the mixture to ensure my chicken would get cooked all the way, optional however)
-In a large bowl, combine the vegetable and chicken mixture, egg, breadcrumbs, garlic powder, salt, 1/2 the hot sauce and the blue cheese.
-Gently fold together to combine, but don't overmix.
-Form the mixture into small meatballs - you should get about 28 small meatballs.
-Place the meatballs on the cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes.
-Remove the meatballs from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes.
-Drizzle remaining hot sauce and serve.
-From here I allowed chicken balls to cool completely and placed them in the freezer.
-To reheat, place them in the microwave for about 2-3 minutes or bake them for about 10-15 minutes or (what I do) place them on the sides in a non stick pan, and add a little bit of water in the middle to allow them to steam.
