  • Yields: 40 small meatballs



1kg chicken mince

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

1/3 fine dry breadcrumbs

1 egg

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp dried rosemary

1/2 tsp dried thyme

1 tsp cracked black pepper


400mls of your favourite buffalo wing sauce (I love Sweet Baby Rays brand)

To garnish

2 Tbsp chopped fresh chives or garlic chives

3-4 Tbsp garlic aioli dressing (Alternative: use Ranch dressing instead if you prefer)

Toothpicks to serve


1Combine all meatball ingredients into a large mixing bowl

2Mix well to combine and using clean hands roll into approx. 40 small meatballs

3Place 200ml of buffalo sauce into slow cooker and gently place the raw meatballs into the sauce

4A single layer is ideal but if you have to double up some that's ok too

5Pour remaining 200ml of buffalo sauce over the meatballs and cook on low for 3.5hours

6DO NOT stir meatballs or move them until final hour. This will ensure they stay intact perfectly. They can be gently stirred in that last hour to ensure all are well coated in the sauce.

7To serve, place meatballs in serving plate with some of the buffalo sauce spooned over them

8Drizzle meatballs lightly with aioli sauce (as pictured)

9Scatter with diced chives then place toothpick in each meatballs and serve hot!

Has anyone halved the recipe?

This was so good. I used a sweet bbq sauce (kid friendly) and topped with Aoli I had. Soooo good!
Must try…

I made these, they were delicious, I tweaked it a little, I don’t like thyme so added coriander instead, I also left out the breadcrumbs, served with bread and salad 🤤

Really loved these and would make again. I served with coleslaw, fries and blue cheese dressing. Would go well with corn cobs, baked potato and salad.
