INGREDIENTS

- Pizza Crust
- Mozzarella Cheese
- Boneless/Skinless Chicken Thighs
Cattleman’s Grill Carne Asada Seasoning
Wing-Time Buffalo Sauce

DIRECTIONS

Step 1: Remove the boneless/skinless chicken thighs from their packaging and lightly coat them with Cattleman’s Grill Carne Asada Seasoning. Let them sit for 10 minutes.

Step 2: Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 (or other grill) to 350°. Setup the grill for direct grilling. Cook the chicken thighs until an internal temperature of 170º has been reached (check the temperature using an instant read thermometer like the Maverick PT-100).

Step 4: Combine the chicken with Wing-Time Buffalo Sauce and make sure it is evenly coated. Top the pizza with the buffalo chicken and place it on the grill (setup an indirect area so that the pizza does not burn over direct heat).

buffalo-chicken-meatballs-recipe

INGREDIENTS

- 3 Pounds Ground Chicken
- Cattleman’s Grill Carne Asada Seasoning
Wing-Time Buffalo Sauce
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Cup Panko Bread Crumbs

DIRECTIONS

Step 1: In a large bowl, mix ground chicken, eggs and panko until fully combined.

Step 2: Form mixture into 1 1/2″ balls and place on a large baking sheet (lightly oil the baking sheet to keep the meatballs from sticking). Once all meatballs are formed, lightly sprinkle Cattleman’s Grill Carne Asada Seasoning onto them.

Step 3: Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 (or other grill) to 350°. Setup the grill for indirect grilling. Place the baking sheet on the middle of the grill and cook until an internal temperature of 160º has been reached (check the temperature using an instant read thermometer like the Maverick PT-100).

Step 5: Let the meatballs rest for 5 minutes. Put 1 cup of Wing-Time Buffalo Sauce into a large mixing bowl. Take 8 – 10 of the meatballs at a time and drop them into the sauce, mixing thoroughly to coat the meatballs. Let them sit in the sauce for a few minutes before adding them to the serving tray. Repeat this process, adding sauce as needed, until all of your meatballs are coated.

Step 6: Serve and enjoy!
