Best Ever Buffalo Chicken Meatballs
I am such a huge fan of all things buffalo, you guys. I swear I could eat buffalo chicken wings every other day – I just don’t get sick of them and they always hit the spot! But, I thought I would mix things up today and do a fun spin on this classic dish! Enter: Buffalo Chicken Meatballs. And they are SO good! I cannot wait for you to try them!
What You Will Need
- Ground Chicken: love using ground chicken – nice and lean and really takes on different flavors well
- Egg: this helps the chicken stay together in a meatball
- Almond Flour: this also acts as the binder
- Spices: onion powder, garlic powder and ground black, kosher salt and ground black pepper
- Oil: for your hands – helps with the sticky ground chicken
- Buffalo Sauce: homemade or store-bought
Can I Make these in the Slow Cooker
Yes! You could totally make these in the slow cooker! To do this I would make the meatball mix and roll them into balls, as directed, and then I would sear them on the stove top or bake them in the oven on a parchment-lined baking sheet at 375 for about 25 minutes. Then place them in the slow cooker along with your sauce and cook on LOW for 2 hours. Expect some separation when it comes to the sauce, but you should be able to stir to recombine.
What to Serve with Them
Celery is a great side to buffalo chicken meatballs! It gives you a nice break from the spiciness of the meatballs as well as nice crunch! You could also do raw broccoli or even cauliflower!
How to Make Buffalo Chicken Meatballs
Mix everything together in a bowl

Sear in a hot cast iron, cook on all sides. Add sauce and let simmer as chicken meatballs fully cook.
Place in bowl and drizzle extra sauce on top. Serve with Paleo Ranch and celery!
