1/2 Cup Buffalo wing hot sauce, (1/2 to 1 cup) low fat low carb
Start by preheating your oven to 350°F. Add the cauliflower florets to a food processor, along with shredded zucchini and green onions. Pulse and blend until it's riced.
In a large mixing bowl, combine ground chicken with the riced vegetables, and mix in garlic powder, onion powder, sea salt, and egg whites. Mix until all ingredients are incorporated.
Cover a baking sheet with olive oil or olive oil cooking spray. Make the meatballs by scooping around 2 tablespoons of the mixture into your hands and gently roll them into a smooth ball.
Place the meatballs on the baking sheet, and set them in the oven for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, remove the meatballs from the oven and increase the heat to 450°F. Pour 3/4ths of a cup of Buffalo wing sauce into a bowl and toss the meatballs to mix in the sauce.
Clean off the baking sheet and coat it again with olive oil before transferring the meatballs back on. Bake in the oven at 450°F for 15 to 20 minutes.
Serve on a plate with a side of Buffalo sauce, or try a low-fat, low-carb blue cheese dressing for dipping.
Ready to serve!
