For the meatballs:

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons parsley
  • 1/4 cup minced celery
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 oz blue cheese

For the sauce:

  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups cayenne sauce


  • 1
    Mix all of the meatball ingredients together except for the blue cheese, and mix well.
  • 2
    Crumble the blue cheese into large chunks.
  • 3
    Form your meatballs by putting some meat into your hand and flattening it out. Add a chunk of blue cheese and wrap the meat around it. Roll it in your palms to form the meatball, making sure it is sealed. Using slightly wet hands will help prevent the meat from sticking to your hands.
  • 4
    Broil the meatballs for 8 minutes, flip and broil another 6 minutes.
  • 5
    Make the sauce by melting the butter in a pan and adding the sugar. Stir and let it simmer until the sugar slightly darkens in color. Add in the cayenne sauce and stir well. Bring to a simmer. Add the meatballs and stir to coat. Serve with celery.
