About this Recipe

Gooey, melted cheese in the middle of these, Cajun spiced meatballs. Tangy BBQ sauce and creamy ranch dressing make them perfect.


1 (454 g) Maple Leaf Prime Naturally® Ground Chicken
1/2 Medium onion, finely diced
5 tbsp 75 mL) Ranch salad dressing, divided
2 tbsp (30 mL) Cajun spice
Salt and pepper
20 - 22 ¼” (1 cm) cubes Cheddar cheese
1 - 1 1/2 cups (250-375 mL) BBQ sauce
2 - 3 tbsp (30-45 mL) Grated Cheddar cheese
1 tbsp (15 mL) Chopped green onion


COMBINE chicken, onion, 2 tbsp (30 mL) ranch dressing, Cajun spice, salt and pepper. Mix gently using your hands. Form the mixture into 20-22 meatballs. Insert a cube of Cheddar cheese into the centre of each meatball.

HEAT a large non-stick skillet over medium-high. Lightly coat with non-stick cooking spray and cook meatballs for about 5 minutes browning on all side. Reduce heat and cook for another 8-10 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).

POUR BBQ sauce over the meatballs and gently toss to coat. Drizzle with the remaining ranch dressing, sprinkle with grated cheese and chopped green onion. Serve over rice.


Substitute Maple Leaf Prime Naturally® Ground Turkey for Chicken.
