Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

So as it turns out, chicken wings aren’t that healthy for you – surprising, I know. All though nothing is quite as good during a football game, this easy and lighter recipe still satisfies my cravings for chicken wings… almost.

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs
Weight Watchers P+ 1 point for 2 meatballs

1/2 tsp. pepper
1 1/2 cups franks red hot buffalo wing sauce

2. In a large bowl combine the chicken and then next 6 ingredients (through pepper).
3. Form the meatballs into 1 1/2 inch balls
4. Place the meatballs into a well greased mini cupcake tin. (If you don’t have one, use parchment paper on a cookie sheet)
5. Bake meatballs for 25 minutes, or until golden brown on top
6. Let the meatballs cool for 10-15 minutes
7. In a medium size bowl, combine the sauce with the meatballs.
8. Serve with blue cheese dressing and carrot/celery sticks
(I didn’t get great pictures, so imagine a nicer presentation)

  1. This sounds really good and just starting WW this week, I am looking for WW friendly foods/recipes. I’m not a huge fan of really spicy things, so do you know of another type of sauce that would go well with these? Thanks for sharing for us newbies out here !!

    • Hey! Thanks for the comment. I am new to WW as well, and just trying to figure out ways to still enjoy my favorite foods. The great think about this buffalo sauce is it is zero points – you could try using a sweet chili sauce or low sugar bbq sauce, but make sure to factor that in as the point amount may change!
