Buffalo Chicken Balls

So, as you guys know I love “man food”.


For those of you who do not know what “man food” is let me try to supply you with this definition, ” Man food is a collection of food that usually has no healthy content and can be ready within 30 minutes or less. It usually consists of two or more processed ingredients and results in something greasy, cheesy, or creamy.” Man I love me some “man food”. It is also the perfect season for man food. Of course we all know why…football season! There is usually some sort of fried chicken wings, potato skins, dip, or casserole that takes center stage on the coffee table. Well go ahead and make room for these bad boys.

I came across this idea from Guy Fieri. You know who that is, don’t you? That is the Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives guy. I love that man. He is that “Kang” of “man food”. The food that he makes , the places that he visits, and his television show all motivate  me to create the most scrumptious, easiest, and satisfying dishes that any man can enjoy. Ladies, if your boyfriend or husband is encouraging you to make these for him and you have been trying to get him to eat healthier, here are a few things to keep in mind: It has celery and onions in them (vegetables), there are no calories in hot sauce, and its made with ground chicken. You have to think, most men need to take baby steps in order cultivate a healthy life style. Making these Buffalo Chicken Balls could be baby step number 1.

Buffalo Chicken Balls


  • 4 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • ⅓ cups Red Hot Sauce
  • 1 pound Ground Chicken
  • 1 whole Large Eggs
  • ½ cups Celery, Minced
  • ½ cups Onion, Minced
  • ¾ cups Bread Crumbs
  • ¾ cups Blue Cheese, Optional
  • Salt And Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 4 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • ⅓ cups Red Hot Sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 450ºF.
  2. For the chicken balls, melt the butter and hot sauce in small sauce pan and set aside. Combine ground chicken, large egg, minced celery, onion, bread crumbs , blue cheese (optional), and salt and pepper. Use hands to combine all ingredients and pour in the hot sauce mixture. Use a wooden spoon to stir in the hot sauce mixture. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes so the hot sauce mixture can get absorbed in the meat.
  3. Take a baking sheet and pour the vegetable oil on top. Make sure that oil is spread evenly on the baking sheet. Begin to take the meatball mixture and roll into meatballs the size that you would like them. Place them on the baking sheet touching one another. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes or until meatballs are firm and cooked thoroughly. Once finished, set aside.

    I did something very similar, but made sliders instead. I added a lot of hot sauce (about 1/2 cup for 2 lbs. chicken) and found that the meat was very hard to handle because it was so wet. But they were really good! I’ll try these as well.

      You know what, I experienced the same thing at first but I had to step away from the chicken for about 5 minutes and the hot sauce actually absorbed into the chicken so it was’nt as wet at first. I’m going to add that tip. Thanks!

      Great! I’m glad that you loved them. And all recipes are a blueprint for personal preference. So add more breadcrumbs if you want; cook longer if it will make you happy. As long as you are eating good then its alright with me!
