Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb ground white meat chicken
  • 3 T onion, finely diced
  • 3 T celery, finely diced
  • 3 T parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 T coconut flour
  • 1 T hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup crumbled bleu cheese (optional)
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/4 t cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 t paprika
  • 1/8 t black pepper
  • Sauce:
  • 6 T coconut oil
  • 3 T hot sauce
  • 1 T fresh lime juice

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Combine all ingredients for meatballs in a large bowl and mix well. Roll the mixture into 1-inch balls and place on a parchment-lined sheet pan. Bake for about 25 minutes until lightly browned and fully cooked.
  3. While the meatballs are cooking, make the sauce. Combine all sauce ingredients in a small saucepan over medium-low heat and bring to a simmer. Gently simmer for about 5 minutes, whisking occasionally. The sauce should slightly thicken.
  4. Transfer the cooked sauce to a large bowl. Add the cooked meatballs and toss to coat. Serve warm with toothpicks or hors d_��oeuvre picks. Optionally, serve any extra sauce with the meatballs.
