What’s for Supper?

Chicken and zucchini fritters—that’s what!

Spring is here and we all would rather be outside now instead of cooking! Well, you are in luck, because this is the easiest way to get a quick dinner in with some healthy protein and veggie. It can be jazzed up with extra herbs and spices, onion and garlic, bacon bits or some shredded cheese. You can also make these as regular sized burger patties if you like. These are gluten free and keto/paleo friendly too.

Chicken Zucchini Fritters


2 ½ cups shredded zucchini

1 ½ lbs ground chicken

1 egg

¾ tsp salt

¼ tsp black pepper

¼ tsp paprika

¼ cup chopped cilantro


Shred zucchini, put in large bowl

Add the ground chicken, egg, salt, pepper, paprika and cilantro to bowl

Mix until well blended

Add enough olive oil to coat the bottom of a large skillet. Heat oil on medium high for a couple minutes

Scoop out meatball sized amounts of chicken mixture into pan, flatten a bit to look like little sliders

Cook for about 3-4 minutes per side until they are golden brown and cooked through

Serve warm topped with guacamole or sour cream ranch dip

Buon Appetito!
