Every year, for the past 20 years, we plan a holiday party with our good friends. They also happen to be our neighbors, and we've all been there for each other through all the happy times and the challenging times too.

We take turns hosting and everyone brings something. Our holiday get together has always included lots of holiday party recipes! I like to come up with something new and scrumptious I know we'll all love! This year I made these Buffalo Chicken Meatballs. They are loaded with Buffalo Chicken flavor and easy to make and eat too! No messy hands like with Buffalo Wings! I like that!!

To make this recipe I used ground chicken and seasoned it liberally. I then mixed up a bottle of Tabasco Sauce and 2 tablespoons melted butter and mixed 1/2 of that into my chicken.

Then I formed them into meatballs using my medium cookie scoop and baked them for about 25 minutes. When fully cooked, I tossed them in the rest of the Tabasco Sauce mixture. So easy!!

I love Tabasco Sauce! I always have it on hand and use it in many different types of recipes. It is so flavorful and really added that true buffalo chicken flavor for which I wanted in this recipe. I used the Original Red Tabasco Sauce, but Publix also had Green Jalapeno Pepper and Chipotle! Look for Tabasco Sauce on the Condiment aisle near the BBQ sauce.

  5. These look like a great addition to a holiday spread! Using chicken really cuts down on the grease that meatballs can have! Great recipe!

    1. Yes!! I love using chicken for meatballs! Sometimes I feel like beef can actually overwhelm the herbs and spices, so chicken is a better alternative to get all those great flavors I want in a meatball. Thanks, Sandra!

  6. I know these have to be amazing! I am going to make them for appetizers at Christmas. Can they be made ahead of time and frozen?

    1. Thanks, Mary Ellen. I would probably make them up to the point of forming them into meatballs and freezing them and then baking them when ready to use. I think they would dry out if you bake them ahead of time. I hope that helps :)
