These boneless buffalo chicken meatballs are all the goodness of wings without the mess!

 

Lately, I have had a hankering for buffalo chicken. Before keto, I would sandwich it in between King’s Hawaiian rolls and go to town. I might have just drooled a little bit.

And football season is quickly approaching friends! ((GO VOLS)) I know my family is counting down till that first kickoff!

It got me thinking…what kind of snacks am I going to make for all the upcoming game days? Because, let’s be honest, football is all about food too!

 

 

I like to make a big spread, have some friends over, and relax over yummy snacks and watching my favorite team!

I know, I know…I could eat a dip with celery or with a fork but that just isn’t the same.

I saw a recipe by a popular blog I used to follow for buffalo chicken meatballs but it wasn’t keto friendly either. So, I just decided to go for it and see if I could come up with one on my own.

 

 

Friends, these were phenomenal! My husband said they reminded him of a boneless wing!

These little guys are all the good parts about a chicken wing without all the mess and orange fingers. No wet wipes required!

Buffalo chicken meatballs will be perfect for game days and get togethers or a quick dinner! You could even make these ahead of time and freeze them till you’re ready! Bake them ahead of time and keep warm in a crock-pot if you want to carry them to a party!
