Zucchini Chicken Poppers

Don’t we all want some new ideas? And that “Tasty” youtube channel has some seriously tasty looking dishes. With a lot of them deep fried. Heh.

Well, I saw one that looked very tasty and kinda healthy. I bookmarked it to try at a later date – which ended up today. Of course, I made a few changes – notably removing onions and cilantro. 

Here’s how they turned out. (Before you get too far, I made them with 1 tsp of salt, and I’m pretty sure that could at least be halved.)

Zucchini Chicken Poppers
1 lb chicken
1 clove garlic, minced
1 ½ cups grated zucchini
½ cup grated fennel
½ tsp grated ginger
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
4 tsps olive oil

Grate zucchini, fennel, and ginger into a medium sized bowl. Add salt and pepper, mix. Add in ground chicken, mix.

Pan-fry by tablespoons. (I made 4x batches of 5, refreshing oil in pan with each batch. If you could do more at a time, you could use less oil.)

Makes about 20 pieces. (20 1 tbsp size plus one giant one, to be exact.)

The original served this with a guacamole type dip – but I didn’t have avocado in the house. That would have been a fresh addition. (And a nice way to cut the salt.)
