  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Mix chicken, French-fried onions, cilantro, oats, white onion, bell pepper, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, seafood seasoning, garlic salt, and black pepper together in a bowl; shape into golf ball-sized spheres and arrange onto prepared baking sheet.

I was a little skeptical about what the consistency would be, since there's no egg to hold it together, but these turned out DELICIOUS! I didn't have oats, so I subbed 1/4 cup extra fried onions. I think I would do the same in the future, too. We had a meatball bar at work and these were the first to disappear!


I had not seen a recipe for Buffalo Chicken Meatballs before, so decided to give it a try. I followed the recipe exactly. This was my first time working with ground chicken, was quite sticky. My meatballs were a little flat on the bottom but no big deal. The recipe tells you to line the pan with foil. Do NOT skip this part. I had a good quality non stick pan and there was black goo all over it. I think this is from the French fried onions, caramelizing. Next time, I would be sure to line the pan. Ok, now for the meatballs themselves. They were very moist and did not fall apart. I am not sure about the cilantro. I like it but not sure that it worked well in this recipe. I would either cut the amount in half or leave it out all together. I believe minced celery or celery salt instead of garlic salt would be a nice addition. Also, was not a huge fan of the hot sauce mixed with the ranch dressing. I believe I would try mixing some hot sauce in with the meatballs and then dipping in blue cheese along with celery and carrot sticks. I would try this again with the mentioned changes. I do think this is a good base recipe that you can adjust to your own tastes. Thanks for the idea!


I give 5 stars to recipes that are healthy, tasty, easy and fast to cook! These meatballs are very tasty and moist. They held perfectly. I increased my cilantro to a 1/3 of a cup, and finely chopped the onion instead of grating. 1 tbsp of Worcesterhsire & I opted to add 1 tbsp Tamari. I added a dash of ginger powder since these balls will be in a oriental dish. I plan to use pad thai rice noodles with an asian sauce. They are perfect for it! Mine were cooked within 12 minutes, but I kept them smaller.
