Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

  • Servings: 4 meatballs
  • Yield: Approx. 48 meatballs
  • Prep Time: 30 min
  • Cooking Time: 30 min


  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 lb. ground chicken breast
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • ½ cup minced celery
  • ½ tsp. onion powder
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • ⅔ cup Louisiana-style hot sauce, divided
  • ⅔ cup chicken broth
  • 2 Tbsp. ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp. butter


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°.
