I don't know about you but I am bored of beef meatballs and also bored of messy buffalo chicken wings so came up with this combination from two of my favorite recipes. As a bonus, they freeze well if you would like to make a double batch. And, hey, chicken meatballs with favorite pasta sauce instead of buffalo sauce sounds good to me, too.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Heat the hot sauce and butter in a small saucepan over low heat stirring occasionally.
Combine chicken, onions and crackers and then round into dollar size balls. Brown the meatballs in a large skillet with the olive oil on medium heat. Transfer the meatballs into a baking dish.
Smother the meatballs with the hot sauce and butter sauce, cover baking dish and bake for 45 minutes.
Serve with celery sticks and blue cheese dressing on the side.

I am not a meat eater but I will probably try this for my husband as chicken is much healthier for him than beef. I'll forget that there is butter in the sauce LOL!
Sounds great! Good idea. I can't wait to try this.
This sounds so good and so easy. Will have to give it a try real soon!
Bet it also works great with ground turkey, which can be bought frozen, in bulk, pretty cheaply. I'm always looking for healthy, tasty and inexpensive ways to fill up hungry teenage boys. I'll make and freeze double batches, and the kids can microwave some for a quick meal. Thanks!
