I think buffalo chicken is one of those trends that will never die. I remember the first time I tried buffalo chicken dip. I was hooked. Soon I made mac and cheese and quesadillas. Of course there is your traditional buffalo chicken wings and buffalo chicken salad. I think if you can add hot sauce to chicken, it will be done. Now I’m making Buffalo Chicken Meatball Subs with Garlic Blue Cheese Sauce. It’s another easy weeknight dinner that can be ready in 30 minutes.
These buffalo chicken meatballs are easy to whip up. Just mix a few things with ground chicken, shape, bake, and eat! The first time I made these baked meatballs, I forgot the egg and used ranch dressing, making the mixture very creamy. Although they baked just fine, they spread a bit and had flat bottoms for meatballs. The second time I made them, I remembered the egg and used dry ranch seasoning mix. Much better! The mixture is still a bit on the wet side, but you can guarantee they won’t be dry after baking!
Instead of marinara sauce for traditional meatball subs, I topped mine with garlic blue cheese sauce. If you are not a fan of blue cheese, feel free to use ranch dressing instead. For those of you who don’t know what buffalo chicken is, the idea originated in Buffalo, NY where chicken wings were tossed in hot sauce. There is no actual buffalo involved.
