Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

Looking for the perfect game day snack? Let’s be honest, we love everything “buffalo” flavored but chicken wings can get pretty old, pretty fast and we all hate looking like “baby’s first birthday,” afterwards with buffalo sauce all over our hands and face. BTW, if you don’t get buffalo sauce all over your hands and face – you’re doing it wrong…

If you are craving the flavor but not the wing, try these buffalo chicken meatballs. All the flavor, no mess? Even better!

Beware – ground chicken does not have the same texture as ground beef. Because it is a different meat, duh. If you make this recipe knowing that these meatballs won’t have the same consistency as a beefy meatball, you are bound to like them even more. And if you aren’t sold the first time, don’t worry – ground chicken will grow on you!

*if you aren’t paleo or aren’t gluten free – sub breadcrumbs for almond flour.
