Hot sauce is hands down our favorite condiment on this planet. We’ll eat anything buffalo style (as long as there’s no blue cheese). We even put hot sauce on our eggs!

Apparently I felt ambitious one day after work. I stopped at Stew Leonard’s to pick up “a few things” … which never happens… and I came across ground chicken. So I grabbed it and decided to give it a go!


-1 package of ground chicken (about a pound)

-1 egg

-Plain breadcrumbs (enough to make the meat mixture dry enough to work with)

-HOT SAUCE (Frank’s is good or even the wing sauce)

-Fresh parsley


In a large mixing bowl, mix together the ground chicken, 1 egg, plain breadcrumbs, and yes… HOT SAUCE. Use your hands to mix the ingredients together.

Keep adding breadcrumbs until the mixture is dry enough to work with. We don’t like overdo it on breadcrumbs, so my mixture was still a bit wet, but was workable. I noticed that unlike beef, the ground chicken is definitely more wet so you’ll need to not add any extra wet ingredients, i.e. olive oil, butter, etc.

Add in chopped fresh parsley to taste.

Use your hands to make medium sized meatballs and put them on a baking sheet. I like to put them on a little parchment paper so they come off easier when cooked. Let bake on 450 degrees for about 10 minutes.

I topped the meatballs off with a little hot sauce drizzle.

Serve with veggies for a healthy, fun meal!
