1/2 lb ground chicken
or 1 large chicken breast - ground in the food processor
1 small onion minced
1 garlic clove
1 c panko crumbs (see meeyauw’s previous post to make your own panko crumbs)
1 Tbsp paprika
2 Tbsp melted butter
1-2 tsp hot sauce (add more or less - to your preference)
Preheat your oven to 400˚F
In a large mixing bowl, add the ground chicken, onion, garlic, panko crumbs, paprika and sprinkle of some salt and pepper. Mix together until thoroughly combined.
Divide the mixture into 12 individual balls and place on a lightly greased 2- to 3-inch deep baking or cake pan. Cover the top with foil and put into the oven.
Bake for 30 min.
While the chicken bakes, combine the melted butter and hot sauce in a new bowl.
After the 30 min baking, remove the chicken from the oven and put them into the bowl of the hot sauce. Toss the chicken until all are coated and transfer to a serving plate.
Add some carrot slices and/or celery and some of the ranch, bleu cheese, or yogurt dip on the side and serve warm.
Makes about 12 meatballs.
