Tired of the regular tailgating food? These Hot Wing Chicken Meatballs are the ticket for your next tailgating party. They are easy to make, easy to freeze for later parties, and they are not as messy as their inspiration—-the great American Hot Wing.


  1. 1Cut chicken breasts into large chunks and pulse in food processor with blade until you have a very coarse ground.
  2. 2Place chicken in a large mixing bowl. Add apple, parsley, bread crumbs, garlic, egg, salt and pepper. Mix with hands until incorporated.
  3. 3Using a 1 inch ice cream or cookie scoop, form each meatball around a crumble of blue cheese, sealing the cheese inside. Each meatball should be about 1 inch.
  4. 4Place on a foil lined baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes (or until done.)
  5. 5Remove from oven and glaze with 1/8 c. hot wing sauce.
  6. 6Serve with 1/8 c. hot wing sauce topped with additional crumbled blue cheese on the side for dipping.
