Chicken Zucchini Bites

These chicken zucchini bites are delicious and easy to make, great for parties with guacamole or lunches by adding to a salad. The kids will love them and by grating the zucchini they won’t even know it’s there. I will often wrap one up in some kale and pop straight into my mouth for a snack.


500g Chicken breast or thigh

2 cups grated zucchini

2-3 spring onions

4 Tbsp coriander, minced

1 clove garlic

3/4 tsp cumin

Salt & papper

coconut oil for cooking


  • Mix the chicken, zucchini, spring onions, coriander, garlic, salt and pepper and cumin.  Mixture will be wet.
  • Warm coconut oil in a medium pan.
  • Scoop a heaped teaspoon into the pan and cook 8 - 10 at a time fro about 5 - 6 minutes until golden and cooked through the centre.
  • You could also bake these in the oven on a baking sheet.  Drizzle some oil over the meatballs and bake for 20-30 minutes until browned.
  • Serve with guacamole, salsa or favourite dip, or in a salad.
