 1 lb ground chicken breast
 1 large zucchini, grated with peel on (squeeze out extra water with a paper towel)
 2 green onions, finely sliced
 2 tbsp cilantro, minced
 1 fresh lime, juiced
 ½ tsp cumin
 ¼ tsp chipotle chili powder
 ¼ tsp chili powder
 ¼ tsp onion powder
 ¼ tsp garlic powder
 ¼ tsp ground black pepper
 ¼ tsp sea salt
 1 tbsp olive oil



In a large bowl, mix together chicken, zucchini, green onions, cilantro, lime juice, and spices.

In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. With a scoop or large spoon, drop meat mixture into the pan and cook for about 2 minutes each side or until cooked through.


1 Bite = 1/2 Protein


Serving Ideas: Serve with my favorite salsa-yogurt dip or guacamole or fresh avocado slice. If you’d like, these can be made into larger patties to make full-sized burgers.
