Meatballs + Buffalo wings all in one. A Buffalo Chicken Meatball. It's so delicious and easy to make at home when you're craving Buffalo wings... especially delicious with homemade Jalapeno Ranch! I use the liquid from pickled jalapenos to make the ranch extra delicious!
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees and line with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, combine ground chicken breast, breadcrumbs, garlic, onion powder, green onions, egg, chili powder (if using), salt and pepper. Use about 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper. Combine with your hands until just mixed. Form into golfball sized meatballs and place on the baking sheet. Pop into the 400 degree oven for 5 minutes. This will help give the meatballs shape before dropping them into the slow cooker.
Drop the meatballs into a slow cooker turned on to low heat. Mix together the Buffalo sauce and butter, and pour over the meatballs. Let cook for 1.5 - 2 hours to get really tender. Although, they would be good after an hour!
for the jalapeno ranch:
When you put the meatballs in, mix together the Jalapeno Ranch. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and refrigerate.
Serve meatballs with some extra Buffalo sauce, Jalapeno Ranch, and celery sticks!
