  • 2 pounds ground chicken breast
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs unseasoned
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 ounces blue cheese cut in pieces
  • 2 ½ cups hot sauce Frank's Red Hot brand recommended
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter cut in pieces

For the garnish

  • 2 ribs celery finely chopped
  • 1 cup blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping


  • In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken, breadcrumbs, eggs, salt and pepper.  Mix thoroughly to ensure ingredients are evenly distributed.
  • Using about 1 tablespoon of the chicken mixture, lightly flatten out into a disk and add a piece of blue cheese (about ½ inch piece.)  Close the chicken around the cheese and roll into a ball.  Cheese should be completely encased by the chicken so it will not leak through into the sauce while cooking.*
  • Repeat the chicken, cheese, rolling process until all the chicken is used.
  • In a crock pot, add ½ cup of hot sauce to the bottom to prevent meatballs from sticking or burning.  Layer meatballs and add the remaining 2 cups of hot sauce so the meatballs are evenly coated.
  • Scatter pieces over butter over the top of the meatballs.  Cover and cook on high for two hours.
  • After cooking, gently stir meatballs to evenly coat with hot sauce and to stir in any separated butter.  Transfer to a serving dish and coat with remaining buffalo sauce from the crock pot.  
  • Sprinkle the buffalo chicken meatballs with chopped celery.  Serve alongside blue cheese or ranch dressing for dipping.


  • Ground chicken mixture will quickly stick to your hands. To make the process easier, keep a small bowl of water nearby and lightly wet your hands throughout the process.
  • Hot sauce will not completely cover all the meatballs. If some of the chicken is not coated with hot sauce, stir about halfway through the cooking process.
