Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground chicken (I used dark meat)
  • 1/2 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped broccoli florets
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped spinach, loosely packed
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • black pepper to taste
  • oil for cooking

Instructions

  • Take shredded zucchini and put it in the middle of a clean dish towel or large piece of paper towel. Wrap up the zucchini with towel squeeze a few times to help drain out some of the zucchini’s moisture.
  • In a large bowl, combine drained zucchini and remaining ingredients except oil. Using clean hands or a spoon, mix until well combined.
  • Form mixture into patties and set aside.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Cook patties until a golden-brown crust starts to form and chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes per side
  • Enjoy immediately with a lettuce wrap or your favorite bun.
