Mike’s Chicken, Bacon, & Zucchini Poppers



Ingredients
  • 1 lb. ground chicken breast just $4.29 per lb this week at Wohlner’s
  • 2c grated zucchini (leave peel on)
  • 2-3 green onions, sliced
  • 3-4 Tbsp cilantro, minced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • (optional: ¾ tsp cumin)
  • olive oil, for cooking
  • 6 strips cooked bacon

Directions:

1. Toss chicken with bacon, zucchini, green onion, cilantro, garlic, salt, and pepper (and cumin, if using). Mixture will be quite wet.

2. To cook on the stove top:
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

To bake:
Drizzle a bit of olive or avocado oil onto a baking sheet. Scoop meatballs onto the greased pan. Drizzle a bit of additional oil over the meatballs. Bake at 400 degrees 20-25 minutes, or until cooked through. If desired, place under the broiler for an additional 2-3 minutes or until browned on top.


Serve with your favorite dip from Wohlner’s local collection.

Makes 6 servings.
