  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 ⅓ cup zucchini (medium size) grated
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • vegetable oil for cooking
  • 3-4 tablespoon flour all-purpose gluten-free if desired

For dipping sauce

  • 3 tablespoon parsley or cilantro chopped
  • 2 avocado (medium) mashed
  • 3-4 tablespoon greek yogurt
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice or lemon
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder


  • 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.
