Chicken Zucchini Poppers

I tried these and loved them. Chicken Zucchini Poppers make a really quick, light meal that kids will go crazy for.  Try this recipe and let me know how you like it. I think it’s a great alternative to fast-food nuggets.


1 pound ground chicken breast
→ 2 cups grated zucchini (with peel on)
 2 to 3 green onions, sliced
→ 3 to 4 tablespoons cilantro, minced
 1 clove garlic, minced
 1 teaspoon salt
 1/2 teaspoon pepper
 1 tablespoon Parmesean cheese
 2 tablespoons Panko bread crumbs
 1 tablespoon chopped nuts
Optional – 1 sweet sausage link (taken out of the casing and mixed with the chicken breast)


1. Mix ground chicken and other ingredients in a large bowl.
2. Grease a frying pan or skillet with olive oil. From the bowl, spoon out 8 to 10 nugget-sized dollops into the skillet.
3. Over medium heat, cook the chicken poppers for 5 minutes on each side.
4. You can eat them plain or serve them with your favorite dip or sauce.
