Blue Cheese-Stuffed Buffalo Chicken Meatballs


  • 1 pound lean ground chicken
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup Italian-style bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon powdered Ranch dip mix
  • 1 cup blue cheese crumbles
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cups your choice of Buffalo wing sauce
  • ¼ cup ranch dressing, for topping
  • Minced chives, to garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the chicken, ranch mix, egg, and breadcrumbs. Stir until mixed well. Using your hands, mold the mixture into meatballs.
  • Press a small ball of blue cheese into the center of each meatball, and fold the mixture around the cheese. Press together, and roll into a ball so that the cheese is completely covered.
  • Place the meatballs on a nonstick cookie sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden and cooked through.
  • Remove, let cool, then dip each meatball into a bowl of Buffalo wing sauce. Drizzle with ranch dressing, sprinkle with minced chives, and serve.
