Servings: 24 meatballs
Calories: 60kcal


  • 1 1/2 lb ground chicken
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • 1 small carrot finely grated
  • 1 stick celery minced
  • 2 green onions minced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp kosher sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup buffalo sauce We like using Frank's buffalo sauce
  • 3 tbsp ranch dressing OR bleu cheese dressing


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a standard size baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat, set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground chicken, panko and egg. Allow the panko to soak in the egg for 5 minutes. Add the carrot, celery, green onion, garlic, paprika, salt and pepper. Using your hands (or a spatula), mix together just until combined (overworking it will cause the meatballs to be dense).
  • Using a spoon or a standard size cookie scoop, shape into meatballs and place onto the prepared baking sheet. Place in the oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes or until cooked throughout (internal temperature of 160).
  • Remove from the oven, place the meatballs in a bowl, add the buffalo sauce and gently toss to combine. Serve immediately, drizzled with dressing and extra green onion, if desired.


-You can fold in or stuff these meatballs with 1/3 cup blue cheese or mozzarella!
