Another buffalo sauce recipe, but this time in the form of chicken meatballs! Meatballs are always a popular pot-luck or party dish, and this recipe puts a fun little twist on them. Serve these up, sit back, and watch them disappear!
SIDE NOTE: Add a small piece of blue cheese or mozzarella to the middle of the meatball before putting them in the oven. It’ll be a cheesy surprise!
SIDE NOTE 2: After these cook, you can keep them warm in a crockpot instead of putting on a serving dish.
