Ingredients:  
MEATBALLS:
1 2 pounds ground chicken (or turkey)
4 teaspoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 large eggs
1 cup Panko breadcrumbs*
teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon onion powder
FIRECRACKER SAUCE:
cup hot sauce (I recommend Franks)
1 cup light brown sugar
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
teaspoon salt
- teaspoon red pepper flakes (depending on spice preference)

Directions:
Directions:
Position 2 racks near the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 475F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper, set aside.
In a saucepan, combine the ingredients of the firecracker sauce over medium high heat, allow to come to a boil, reduce the heat so it simmers. Let simmer for 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow the sauce to cool. The sauce will thicken as it cools so dont worry if it looks thin.
In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken, garlic, salt pepper, eggs, panko, paprika, and onion powder. Use your hands to mix all the ingredients together. Its easier to tell when he ingredients are combined when using hands. DO NOT OVERMIX, it will result in drier meatballs.
Shape the meat mixture into ball, about 3 tablespoons of meat per ball. You can also do this with an ice cream scoop. Place shaped meatballs on prepared baking sheet. bake for 11-13 minutes or until the meatballs are completely cooked.
Using 2 tablespoon, dip each individual meatball into the sauce. Alternately, you can brush each meatball with the sauce. Place back on the baking sheet and bake for an additional 1-2 minutes. Drizzle or brush with additional sauce as desired.

Personal Notes:
Firecracker and Spicy Meatball believe it or not were two of the many nicknames I had growing up in my small town Wisconsin home. Being a mix of Mexican and Italian in an overly white community had me standing out since a small child, that I am grateful for!
