Buffalo Balls

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon powder
  • ¼ cup water 
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 block blue cheese, cut into cubes 
  • Buffalo sauce (½ cup butter, 1 cup Frank's Red Hot Sauce, 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper)
  • 1 teaspoon parsley, to garnish
  • Ranch dressing, to serve
  • Cut carrots and celery sticks, to serve (optional)

Directions:

  • Heat grill to medium.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, combine ground chicken, Bisquick, bouillon, water, and cheddar cheese. Use your hands to mix well until the contents are uniformly incorporated. 
  • Form chicken mixture into balls around an individual cube of blue cheese. Repeat until all of the mixture has been used.
  • Grill the chicken balls on medium heat, covered, for approximately 30 minutes until firm. Each ball should reach an internal temperature of 160°F.
