Ingredients
  • Meatballs:
  • Nonstick cooking spray, for spraying baking sheet
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 3/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup minced celery
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 small onion, grated
  • Kosher salt
  • Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Celery sticks, for serving
Directions
  • For the meatballs: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in the hot sauce, remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature.

  • Combine the chicken, breadcrumbs, celery, egg, onions and 1 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add 2/3 cup of the cooled hot sauce mixture (reserve the rest) and mix to combine. Form the chicken mixture into 2-inch meatballs (about 18 total) and place them on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake until cooked through, about 20 minutes, brushing the meatballs with the reserved hot sauce mixture during the last 8 minutes.

  • For the sauce: Combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, blue cheese and vinegar in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Serve the meatballs with the sauce and celery sticks.
