Easy

Ingredients
  • Cooking spray, for spraying the baking sheet
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce, such as Frank's
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 3/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 small onion, grated
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • Celery sticks, for serving
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Whisk the butter and hot sauce together in a small bowl and set aside. Combine the chicken, breadcrumbs, celery, egg, onion, 1 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a large bowl. Add 2/3 cup of the hot sauce-butter mixture and use your hands to mix and combine. Roll the chicken mixture into 1-inch meatballs (about 36 total) and put them on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake until cooked through, brushing the meatballs with the reserved hot sauce-butter mixture about halfway through, 10 to15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, whisk the sour cream, blue cheese, mayonnaise and vinegar together in another small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Serve the meatballs with the blue cheese sauce for dipping and celery sticks on the side.
