Buffalo Chicken Meatballs – Low Carb Keto Meatball Recipe

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs – Low Carb Keto Meatball Recipe


Welcome all! Papa G here. Today I present a mouth-watering low carbohydrate appetizer. My
buffalo chicken meatballs. Not only are these little nuggets loaded with flavor
and spice; the whole recipe, all 33 meatballs, are only just over a half a
net carbohydrate. Let’s get started. You’ll want to use about 6 boneless,
skinless, chicken thighs for this recipe. I’ve tried chicken breasts; they just
don’t work as well. Keep this bit of fat if your chicken has it. It’ll help keep
our meatballs nice and moist. Prep the chicken by cutting it into thirds. Place
in a food processor. Add some cayenne pepper hot sauce; a good bit of salt;
ground black pepper; just a bit of cayenne pepper; and some dried parsley. Pulse until the chicken is ground. You
may have to scrape down the sides or mash it down once or twice. Place the ground chicken in a large
mixing bowl. Add one lightly beaten egg; one cup of ground pork rinds; and a
little grated Parmesan cheese. Mix well until all the ingredients are
incorporated into the chicken. Using your hands, roll into cocktail sized meatballs
and place in a well greased baking dish. Make sure the baking dish you use has
sides, as there will be some rendered fat. I made about 33 meatballs from this
recipe. Your amount may differ depending on the size of your meatballs. Place in
the middle of a preheated 400°F oven for about 20 minutes or until the
chicken reaches an internal temperature of at least 165°F. While
they bake, warm a 12 ounce bottle of your favorite zero carbohydrate buffalo sauce in a
sauce pot. When they’re done, removed from the oven. Place the meatballs in a mixing
bowl and pour over our warm sauce. Serve with some celery and my ranch dressing…
and enjoy! There you have it folks! My low carbohydrate buffalo chicken meatballs. A
spicy and savory low carbohydrate treat – perfect for your next party or when you’re
watching your favorite sports team play. I hope you enjoyed this video. If you did,

  1. Wow! So great, G! A food processor has been on “things I really ought to own” list forever. I really need to get one — just for these!!!

  2. How do you do it!
    You come with great ideas every week!
    I was just cooking chicken thighs.I thought what should I do with them.
    So many packets of seasoning have sugars! thanks again Jennifer 😃

  3. I was just at IKEA yesterday checking out their chicken meatballs. Decided not to buy them, thinking I should look up a KETO recipe for chicken meatballs! THANK YOU • right on time!

  4. Yet another winning recipe. I have to say that, without a doubt, your channel is my go to every time for great low carb food. From your past videos to the present every one is fantastic. Thank you for everything you do for your growing community of viewers. It is greatly appreciated!

  5. I purchase ground chicken at my local supermarket would that be easier that grinding chicken thighs in a food processor?

  6. any chance of you whipping these up in another flavor that isn't hot? Spicy and I do not get along…lol Maybe lowcarb teriyaki or another seasoning? The recipe sounds great though if your body tolerates the heat 🙂

  7. We had the buffalo chicken meatballs for dinner. They were excellent! Also had a mixed salad with your zesty french dressing. We've been telling others about Papa G… 😉

  8. Wow, Papa G, had this for a main dish with veggies. Was a real hit with my non keto hubby who loves spicy. Thanks!

  9. These look like a perfect, low cost freezer meal. Make and bake them ahead of time, throw large amounts in the freezer and just heat up in a saucepan of the buffalo sauce when you want a quick delicious protein for lunch or dinner.

  10. I just finished making these 5 minutes ago and they are AMAZING! Also made the ranch dressing and that was great too! Papa G makes my keto journey easy.

  11. Can I use almond meal in place of pork rinds? It says on the back of the almond meal bag that it can be used as a breadcrumb substitute.
