Directions

  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Pour stuffing mix into a plastic resealable bag and crush into fine crumbs using a rolling pin. Mash crushed stuffing mix, chicken, 1/3 cup hot sauce, and eggs together in a large bowl using a potato masher until just combined. Form mixture into 1-inch meatballs.

  • Fry meatballs in the hot oil until browned and cooked through, 10 to 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Drizzle meatballs with about 1 teaspoon hot sauce.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.

These had a great flavor. I did bake them but don't overbake or they will dry out quickly. Read More

Yummy meatballs. I didn't need too much oil to get these brown so it worked out well. I had some leftover Gorgonzola so I melted that on top.. yum Read More

I also baked them but I added about 1 1/2 cup of crumbled blue cheese to the ground chicken mixture. (I made a 3 lb batch so reduce cheese for smaller batch) The cheese gave it great flavor and the result must have helped against getting too dry. My family loved this. Will make it again! Read More

I really liked these. I feel like spicy things really satisfy my cravings. I served them really hot with light ranch dressing and they were healthy and good. Read More

They turned out a little dry but not bad. I baked them instead of frying so I could have overcooked them a bit. If I make them again I'll simmer them in a bit of salsa or serve with cheese sauce. Read More
