Serves: 16


  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1⁄3 cup almond flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon green onion, sliced thin
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1⁄2 cup hot wing sauce
  • Ranch dressing, optional
  • Celery sticks, optional


  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Use aluminum foil to line large baking sheet; spray with non-stick spray.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine chicken, flour, egg, green onions, garlic and onion powder. Shape mixture into 16 evenly-sized meatballs and arrange on baking sheet.
  • Bake until chicken is cooked through with an internal temperature of 165 degrees, about 15 minutes.

  • Serve warm with a side celery sticks and ranch dressing, if desired. Refrigerate leftovers.
