Ingredients

Cheese

Look for the Proudly Wisconsin Badge when shopping for cheese. Any brand of Wisconsin Feta or Parmesan can be used in this recipe.

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Place a greased wire rack on an aluminum foil-lined rimmed baking sheet; set aside.
  2. Combine the egg white, parmesan, bread crumbs, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Crumble chicken over parmesan mixture; mix just until combined. Divide chicken mixture into 16 portions; shape into balls.
  3. Cut feta into 16 cubes, about 1/2-inch each. Press a feta cube into the center of each ball; seal chicken mixture around cheese. 
  4. Place meatballs on prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in meatballs reads 165°F.
  5. Meanwhile, warm wing sauce and butter in a large saucepan over medium heat until butter is melted, stirring occasionally. Add meatballs; toss to coat. Serve immediately, or transfer to a 3-quart slow cooker. Keep warm on low.

Cheesemonger Tip

Do you have questions when shopping for cheese? Ask the cheesemonger! A cheesemonger specializes in the buying and selling of high-quality cheese, usually available in the specialty section of a grocery store or cheese shop. Knowledgeable and passionate, a cheesemonger is a go-to resource for cheese varieties and pairings, proper cheese storage and handling, its cooking applications and cheese brand information.

Keep feta in the brine until ready to eat; the brine preserves the cheese.
