Tasty Buffalo Chicken Meatballs Recipe: This Easy Buffalo Meatball Appetizer Recipe Is Perfect for Gameday

I made this meatball appetizer recipe for a day of football watching recently and figured others may enjoy it, especially with the upcoming Super Bowl®. It’s an easy one, a combination of the typical meatball recipe and chicken wing recipe. Perfect for gameday! Serve with blue cheese salad dressing or blue cheese crumbles (or both!).

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes
Servings: 4 to 6



  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg

Buffalo Sauce

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Mix meatball ingredients together and roll into small balls. Place the meatballs on a sheet pan covered with parchment paper. Bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven for about 15 minutes.
  2. While the meatballs bake, put all sauce ingredients in a slow cooker or saucepot. Warm together on low heat, long enough to melt the butter and incorporate it into a sauce.
  3. Once the butter is melted and incorporated, add the meatballs. Cook on low heat for 30 minutes if using a slow cooker.
