  • 1 lb. ground chicken (I recommend using all-white ground chicken breast)
  • cup chopped onion
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley
  • 1 ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp cayenne
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • ¾ cup hot sauce (I recommend Frank's Red Hot)
  • ¼ cup crumbled blue cheese


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Combine ground chicken, onion, garlic, parsley, paprika, cayenne, salt, and pepper in a large bowl and using your hands, mix together.
  • Using about 2 tsp of chicken mixture at a time, roll in the palm of your hand to form a meatballs the size of golfballs. Place on prepared baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees, until meatballs register at 165 degrees when a thermometer is inserted.
  • Heat hot sauce in a large saucepan. When meatballs come out of the oven toss them in the sauce until fully coated.
  • Serve meatballs with blue cheese crumbled over the top.
