Buffalo Chicken Meatballs: Ingredients and Equipment

To prepare the recipe for chicken meatballs you will need…


  • ground chicken: the base of your meatballs. You will need about a pound.
  • Buffalo Sauce – oh yeah…which gives this chicken meatball recipe such wonderful flavor! You can use any brand that is your favorite or even make your own at home.
  • flour – if you’ve made meatballs before, you know this helps hold them together.
  • Parmesan, garlic powder, parsley: aromatic herbs, spices and aromas. These take meatballs seriously from a simple variation on buffalo chicken to something completely sublime!
  • olive oil – you will cook your ingredients in this oil.


  • bowl – to combine all the ingredients at once. Honestly, I just use my hands to mix, but a wooden spoon is fine too.
  • frying pan or frying pan – for cooking meatballs. Non-stick pans are better for cleaning, but the skillet will give you beautifully browned meatballs… so that’s up to you. Pros and cons!
  • Meat Thermometer – Not really necessary, but HIGHLY recommended. It is an indispensable tool in the kitchen. You’ll know your meatballs are done when they’re about 165°F in the middle!

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs: Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have any other flavor suggestions to use?

Oregano is great in this recipe! I also like onions, fresh and chopped or in the form of onion powder. The celery bits also give the meatballs a fantastic crunch.

Can I use ground turkey instead of ground chicken?

Yes!! In the end it tastes more or less the same and you will cook them the same.

How long does it take to make buffalo chicken meatballs?

Just under half an hour, isn’t that fabulous? You will only need 10 minutes to prepare and 15 minutes to cook the meatballs.

How many servings does this chicken meatball recipe make?

This should make enough meatballs for four for dinner! As an appetizer, you can probably feed about six people.

Can you make buffalo chicken meatballs ahead of time?

Yes! You can store them in the freezer for 3 months or in the refrigerator for a day or two, raw. If your meatballs are cooked, they will last about six months in the freezer, yes, really! – or a week in the fridge.

Are these chicken meatballs spicy?

It depends 100% on the type of buffalo sauce you use! If your family likes (and can take) a good kick, use a spicier sauce. But they also sell a lot of delicate sauces if you prefer that.
