Keto Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

Dish Info

Keto Buffalo Chicken Meatballs are a family favorite!   They work just as well for a weeknight dinner as they do as an appetizer on your game day buffet.  The ground chicken is well seasoned and then combined with sour cream, egg, scallions, celery, and blue cheese for a juicy, tender meatball that is anything but boring.  You can make these in your air fryer or oven.  Either way, you have a simple dish the whole family can enjoy.
