No matter what diet or (woe) way of eating I have tried over the years one of the most common denominators in weight loss is cutting down on carbs.
So, I try to eliminate the majority of them, even where you would not think carbs would be that big of a deal, with things like breadcrumbs in a recipe you might not worry. But those hidden carbs add up, what to do? Low Carb Buffalo Chicken Meatballs made with Pork Rinds are what you should do!
1 lb. ground chicken breast
1/4 cup hot sauce
3/4 cup pork rinds, crushed
1 stalk of celery,diced fine
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. ground black pepper
How to make low carb Buffalo chicken meatballs
- Preheat oven to 450.
- Line baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat mat.
- Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, mixing them well until everything is evenly mixed.
Roll chicken mixture into balls about the size of a ping pong ball, place on prepared baking pan leaving room between each one so that the heat is able to move evenly throughout.
Bake for 15-18 minutes.
Toss slightly cooled chicken buffalo meatballs in additional sauce and drizzle with ranch or blue cheese dressing to finish them off. Serve with celery .
Besides the yummy flavor the reason I love to make these is that the freeze so well! You can freeze them from an uncooked or a cooked state, leave the final toss in hot sauce and ranch for after they are reheated.
These are great to freeze extras so that you have a quick snack or meal. To freeze just wait until they are completely cool, put as many as you need for a meal in a freezer bag and pop in the freezer, remember to write down the contents and date with a sharpie marker on the bag.
