We had this with Mac and Cheese baked quinoa which was absolutely amazing. The quinoa can be made any way you would like flavor wise. I added spinach because that is one of the only cooked veggies I eat, but I am sure that adding broccoli or another vegetable would be just as amazing! So, with that, below are two recipes that I absolutely love and they will definitely be repeated at our house!
Feta-Stuffed Buffalo Chicken MeatballsIngredients:
1lb ground chicken breast
1/4 small red onion, grated or minced
2 gloves garlic, microplaned or minced
1 egg white
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
2 tablespoon powdered Ranch Dip mix
4oz block feta cheese, cut into 1/2” cubes
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup buffalo wing sauce
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Stir together red onion, garlic, egg white, bread crumbs, and ranch dip mix in a large bowl. Add ground chicken then mix until just combined. Divide mixture into quarters, then each quarter into 4 balls. Press a cube of feta into the center of each ball then close mixture around cheese to seal. Place meatballs onto a non-stick sprayed cooling rack set on top of a baking sheet, then bake for 16-18 minutes, or until cooked through.
- Meanwhile, melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat then add buffalo wing sauce and 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. Note that these are amazing without the sauce if you are not a buffalo sauce fan!
