RECIPE: BUFFALO CHICKEN MEATBALLS
Ingredients For 16 Meatballs
1/4 small red onion, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 egg white
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon dried dill
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 pound 99% fat-free ground chicken breast
4 ounces block feta cheese, cut into 24 ½-inch cubes (will have 8 leftover cubes)
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup Buffalo wing sauce
Blue Cheese Dressing
For The Plate Garnish
1. PREHEAT oven to 400°F. Add the red onion, garlic, egg white, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs and seasonings to a large bowl, then stir with a fork to combine.
2. ADD the ground chicken and mix until combined—do not overmix or meatballs will be tough. Divide the chicken mixture into quarters, then roll each quarter into 4 balls. Press a cube of feta into the center of each ball, then close mixture around cheese to seal.
3. PLACE the meatballs onto a buttered cooling rack set on top of a baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes.
