  • 1 pound of ground chicken
  • 2 cups Panko Breadcrumbs
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 3 Cloves Garlic Minced
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 teaspoon of Garlic Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil


  • 24 Ounces Sour Cream
  • ¾ cup of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce
  • 2 ½ tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of Garlic Powder
  • 6 Tablespoons Butter


  • In a large bowl mix together the ground chicken, panko, egg, garlic, and seasonings just until combined.
  • Form the meat mixture into 12-16 meatballs with your hands until there is no mixture left. Set aside on a large plate.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Fry half of the meatballs in the oil, stir them every thirty seconds to avoid burning and cook for about 6 minutes, or until they developed a light golden crust and have cooked through.
  • Remove them from the pan, cook the remaining meatballs in the pan and remove them from the pan as well. Set aside.
  • Combine all of the sauce ingredients together, except the sour cream, in the frying pan and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  • Reduce the heat and let simmer for 5-10 minutes to allow the brown sugar to fully dissolve and the rest of the sauce to thicken a bit.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the sour cream.
  • Serve immediately with your favorite pasta, rice, or in hoagie rolls or buns as a sandwich. These can also be served as they are as an appetizer.
