Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat with cooking spray.

  • Combine chicken, bread crumbs, egg, Buffalo sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper in a medium bowl.

  • Spray hands with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Form a small portion of chicken mixture into a 1 1/2-inch ball around a cube of feta cheese and place onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining chicken mixture and feta cubes.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through, 18 to 20 minutes, turning over halfway through.

  • Transfer cooked meatballs to a serving platter. Drizzle meatballs with Buffalo sauce and ranch dressing; sprinkle carrot, celery, and reserved feta cheese on top.

These were a huge hit at our New Year's Eve party. I served them with extra carrots and celery for munching and extra buffalo sauce and ranch dressing for dipping. Yum! The only down side was the meat is very sticky even with greased hands. I had my daughter stand by with the cooking spray so I didn't have to keep wiping off the mess just to respray. Totally worth the effort! Read More

These are terrific! I used blue cheese crumbles instead of feta to give a little extra flavor. I would recommend these for a crowd. Just double the recipe & enjoy the compliments you'll get. Read More

I didn't have any buffalo sauce so I used hot sauce. Also no feta cheese so I used Parmesan and mozzarella instead. Still turned out great! My kids loved them! Really easy to make and very tasty! Read More

Did some of the changes that other reviewer suggest by put the carrot and celery in the meat and did more for the top.I also di more buffalo sauce because we like spicy. But I gave a 5 because I know without my little changes would still be great. Read More
