These Chicken Zucchini Fritters are easy, super flavorful and a great meal prep idea for a weekday dinner night. They are loaded with zucchini, ground chicken, and dipped into a little bit of flour to achieve light crunchiness. All this yumminess is served with healthy creamy avocado yogurt dressing.
3-4tablespoonflourall-purpose gluten-free if desired
For dipping sauce
3tablespoonparsley or cilantrochopped
1teaspoonlime juiceor lemon
Wash and peel zucchini. Finely grate it into a bowl. Then transfer and wrap it into a thin kitchen towel placed over a strainer and a bowl in the bottom. Twist the towel to wring out the moisture.
In a separate bowl mix ground chicken, zucchini, and season with salt.
Shape the mixture into medium-sized balls using your hands (make your hands wet before shaping the balls). Prepare a smaller plate/bowl for your flour and dip each chicken fritter into it right before transferring them to the pan (use a spoon as the fritters are very soft and tender). In a medium skillet heat up olive oil and cook chicken fritters for 3-4 minutes both sides.
For the dipping sauce, simply mix all the ingredients in a bowl and you are ready to serve. Enjoy!
For more flavor add chopped onion, garlic, spinach to your ground chicken mix.Sauce - add more yogurt (or sour cream, creme fraiche) if want a thicker consistency, add little by little until you reach the desired result. Please add seasoning to the taste as well.Squeeze a little bit of lemon or lime juice on top of hot chicken zucchini fritters before serving.
