Best Season Winter
  • 1/2 lbs or 250 grams Ground Chicken Breast
  • 2 tablespoons Chopped Parsley/ Cilantro
  • 2 clove Minced garlic
  • 1 cup Grated Zucchini
  • 1 tablespoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper Powder
  • 1 tablespoon Avacado oil/Olive oil
  1. Grate the zucchini with skin on. Place the paper towel over the grated zucchini to absorb the excess water. Dispose off the paper towel.
  2. In the same plate/bowl, add ground chicken, chopped parsley, minced garlic, salt, pepper powder, and oil. Combine well.
  3. Now, place 2 tbsp of prepared mixture on your palm, shape it to a round ball and then flatten it slightly to form a patty.
  4. Heat a pan on a medium flame, add 2 table spoon oil and place the prepared patties on the pan.
  5. Cook patties for about 5 minutes per side until chicken is cooked through and gets a nice golden brown color, flipping in between. Add more oil as needed.
    Oven instructions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees Celsius. Spray a bit of olive or avocado oil onto a baking tray lined with Aluminum foil. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20-25 minutes, or until cooked through.
