Who doesn't love Buffalo wings dipped in ranch dressing? Okay, we admit it: Sometimes, we crave those same spicy and creamy flavors, but in a more... classy form (read: a little less gnawing on bones!). Thankfully, in this Popular Recipe, Chef Andrea's elevated the favorite bar snack, starting with mozzarella, Sriracha, and chicken meatballs. Once baked, they're piled onto toasty brioche slider buns with homemade Buffalo sauce and our Greek yogurt ranch, which doubles as a cool dipping sauce for chive-dusted carrot fries.

Cooking Steps

  1. Prepare ingredients and make Greek yogurt ranch

    Prepare ingredients and make Greek yogurt ranch

    Preheat oven to 450°F. Slice buns open horizontally, if they arrived whole. Rinse carrots; quarter lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 2-inch fries. Rinse chives; thinly slice. Halve lemon. Mince garlic. In a medium bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt, 1 squeeze lemon juice, half of chives, ⅛ teaspoon salt, and pepper. Set aside. Save remaining lemon and yogurt for another use.

  2. Form meatballs

    Form meatballs

    Separate 1 egg, placing yolk in a separate medium bowl. Discard egg white or save for an omelet. Add breadcrumbs, mozzarella, 1 packet Sriracha, ½ teaspoon salt, and pepper as desired to bowl with yolk. Add chicken. Using your hands, mix well, then form into 6 equal balls, about 1½ inches thick. Arrange meatballs on 1 half of a baking sheet.

  3. Bake meatballs and carrots

    Bake meatballs and carrots

    Add carrots to other half of baking sheet with meatballs, then toss with 2 teaspoons olive oil, ¼ teaspoon salt, and pepper as desired. Arrange in a single layer. Bake until carrot fries are lightly browned and tender, and meatballs are cooked through and no longer pink, about 15 minutes.

  4. Make Buffalo sauce

    Make Buffalo sauce

    While carrots and meatballs bake, heat butter in a medium pan over medium heat. When butter is foamy, add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Remove pan from heat and stir in remaining Sriracha—to save time, try using a pair of kitchen scissors to cut all packets open together. (You could use less hot sauce, but a little spiciness is what makes this Buffalo sauce!) Set aside.

  5. Toast buns

    Toast buns

    Once baked, add meatballs to pan with Buffalo sauce, still off heat, and toss to fully coat. Divide carrot fries between serving plates. Wipe baking sheet clean, then add buns and arrange cut-side up. Bake until toasted and light golden, about 3 minutes.

  6. Plate meatball sliders

    Top bun bottoms with meatballs, spooning over any remaining Buffalo sauce from pan. Drizzle with Greek yogurt ranch—reserve some for dipping fries, if desired. Garnish carrot fries with remaining chives and dig in!
