Buffalo Chicken Meatball Sliders

Happy Friday! Is it me or does anyone else hate the fact that it's dark by 6:30 pm here on the east coast? For some reason this year I having some trouble adjusting. Where there's fall there's football, and where there's football, there's all the yumminess that goes along with it. Just like these! I have never used ground chicken until I gave these a whirl. It was not bad at all. My kids loved then so we will be having them again. 

1 pound ground chicken
1/4 of a small onion grated
1 carrot grated
1 clove garlic grated
1 stalk celery grated
1 egg
1 cup panko breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1 whole bottle buffalo hot sauce
1/2 stick butter
1 package italian dressing mix
24 slider or dinner rolls split
Blue cheese or Ranch dressing

Preheat you oven to 400 degrees F. Add onion, carrot, celery, garlic, egg , bread crumbs and seasonings to a large bowl then stir with a fork to combine. Add ground chicken then mix until combined (do not overmix or meatballs will be tough). Divide chicken mixture into quarters, then each quarter into 6 balls. Leaving you with 24 balls.

Place meatballs onto a sprayed cooling rack set on top of a baking sheet, then bake for 20 minutes.

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat then add buffalo wing sauce, and italian dressing mix. Stir to combine. Add cooked meatballs to skillet then use a spoon to coat in sauce. Place a lid on top and turn heat to low to keep warm.

Place each meatball onto split buns top with chopped celery blue cheese or ranch dressing.
