  • 1/2 lemon squeezed

Extra Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup ranch dressing (for drizzling and dunking)
  • 1 bunch chives (chopped)


  • First, combine all the Buffalo chicken ingredients together. Mixing with your opposite dominate hand so you do not over work the meat (If righty then use left hand and vice versa).
  • Next, form golf ball size meatballs and stack in the slow cooker. 
  • Now, combine all the Buffalo sauce ingredients and pour all over the meatballs.
  • Next, cover and cook on low for 6 hours (can cook longer if at work later then 6 hours).
  • Finally, take out of slow cooker, pour the sauce over meatballs, sprinkle ranch dressing, and chives. Happy Cooking!
