Chicken Zucchini Poppers

I found this recipe on pinterest, like I do most of my recipes, and then I saw several of my facebook friends posting it so I knew that I had to try it. I changed the recipe a bit to my liking and you can do the same. They turned out so deliciously excellent. I dipped them in lite honey mustard!


  • 2c grated zucchini (leave peel on)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 3-4 Tbsp cilantro, minced
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • olive oil, for cooking
  • 1 lb. ground chicken breast


  • Toss chicken with zucchini, onion, cilantro, garlic, salt, and pepper. Don't worry if it seems too wet, its just from the zucchini.
  • Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Use a small scoop or a heaped tablespoon to scoop meatballs into the pan. Cook 8-10 at a time for about 5-6 minutes on the first side. Flip and cook for an additional 4-5 minutes, or until golden brown and the centers are cooked through. The center should be bouncy but not squishy. Remember ground turkey and ground chicken cook a lot faster than ground beef.
  • Serve with your favorite dip.

The only thing I didn't like about this recipe was frying it in the pan. Next time I am going to try baking them. Enjoy!
