Zucchini turkey poppers

A great appetizer or main dish for healthy but delicious eating. Easy to make and very light and healthy. Baked in the oven these are great for an app or serve more as a main dish with easy sides!

Enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 pound chicken breast ( ground )
2 cups zucchini squash ( grated )
2 green onion ( diced )
4 tablespoons cilantro ( minced )
1 clove(s) garlic ( minced )
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons olive oil ( for cooking )

Directions:
Toss chicken with zucchini, green onion, cilantro, garlic, salt, and pepper (and cumin, if using). Mixture will be quite wet.
Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a medium 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 an additional 4-5 minutes, or until golden brown and the centers are cooked through. (I baked mine at 400 for 20 mins flipping halfway through). Either cooking method works well!
Serve with guacamole, salsa, or your favorite dip. (I served with an avocado/Greek yogurt homemade dip!!)
