Throw these meatballs in the air fryer for crispy perfection (or bake them in the oven, if you’re rocking the OG kitchen vibes). The gluten-free breading in the seasoning helps keep these meatballs nice and juicy on the inside. Add some crunchy slaw, your go-to sauce—marinara for that tangy kick, or BBQ for smoky goodness—and you can’t go wrong! 


Ingredients
Preparation
  1. Preheat air fryer or oven to 400° F.  
  2. In a large bowl, combine seasoning with chicken. Using your hands or a large spoon, mix until well combined. Form into 18 meatballs, a scant 2 tbsp each.  
  3. Lightly brush air fryer with oil. Add meatballs; air fry 10 min, or until cooked through, shaking the basket halfway through. Or, arrange meatballs on Sheet Pan lined with Sheet Pan Liner. Bake in the oven 15 min, or until cooked.  
  4. Meanwhile, without separating rolls, slice entire package of buns in half, lengthwise, to form a top and a bottom sheet of bun halves. If desired, place both, cut sides up, on Sheet Pan; bake 5 min in preheated 400° F oven on pan to toast.  
  5. Slice meatballs in half. Divide half of the sauce between bottom sheet of buns, add coleslaw mix, and top with three meatball halves per bun, then pour over the remaining sauce. Sprinkle on cheese. Cover with top sheet of buns.  
  6. Slice along sides of each bun to portion into individual sliders, or serve on a tray to be pulled apart.
