My new and incredibly delicious discovery is crispy and juicy chicken meatballs with zucchini. For meatball fans, this recipe can become the main one because the taste is really wonderful. I choose chicken instead of pork because it has less fat and is healthier. Your dish will highly depend on chicken that you choose, so choose wisely.
Grate the zucchini, press the mass a little bit and strain the liquid. Add breadcrumbs, spices, lemon zest, chopped onions and pressed garlic. Add chicken meat, egg and mix everything well.
Heat the oil in the frying pan. Make small oval balls with a spoon and put in a frying pan. Fry it on high fire from all sides for about 3-4 minutes.
Heat the oven to 180 ° C. Put the baking paper on a baking tray. Then put all meatballs on a baking paper and cook it in the oven for 10 more minutes.
Serve as a snack with guacamole or chili sauce. Another option is to serve with a garnish as a traditional meatball :)
Enjoy your Chicken meatballs with zucchini!
