Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • Meatballs
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese crumbled or chunks
  • Coating
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • Sauce
  • 2/3 cup Frank's hot sauce
  • 6 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 clove garlic crushed

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the coating items: almond flour and spices and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, add the chicken, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, egg and almond flour. Mix with your hands and then roll into meatballs and place on a piece of wax paper.
  4. Next take a meatball and break in two. Make an indent in one side and place a piece of blue cheese. Then place the other half on top and smooth to cover the cheese. Continue with all the meatballs. This recipe made 18 for me.
  5. Once the blue cheese is inside, roll them in the coating and place plate. Continue with all the meatballs.
  6. In a cast iron skillet or oven safe pan, heat some olive oil over medium high heat.
  7. When the oil is hot, brown all the meatballs.
  8. While they are browning, make your sauce by boiling the hot sauce, butter and garlic. Once boiling, turn off and set aside.
  9. Strain off any extra oil from frying the meatballs and the pour over your buffalo sauce.Place in the oven and bake for 7 minutes.
  10. Enjoy!
