Buffalo Chicken Balls!!!

 

 

This recipe was given to me by a friend who found it on the internet and since I am a HUGE buffalo chicken wing fan, I decided to try it!  Well as you can see they came out looking more like Buffalo Chicken Blobs than Buffalo chicken balls but I don’t care because they tasted soooooo good and so good for you too!  FYI  I think I might have overmixed them and it specifically says not to do that. xoxoxo
