It takes a little creative thinking to get my kids to eat certain veggies. Zucchini is one of those veggies. So, since I know they love ground chicken patties and corn, I mixed them all together with a little bit of shredded zucchini and they gobbled them up! Best part, they had no idea here was any green veggies in them!
1 zucchini; shredded and drained of Ezra water
1/2 can of corn; drained
1lb of ground chicken
1 handful of Monterey Jack cheese
1 egg; whisked
1/2 cup of bread crumbs
1 tsp of pepper
1 tsp of garlic powder
1 tsp of dried minced onions
Preheat 1 tbsp of oil in a skillet to medium heat. Shred zucchini and press out any excess water. Place into medium bowl. Drain can of corn and add half to the zucchini. Add ground chicken, cheese, egg, bread crumbs and spices. Mix well with hands.
Form into parties and place into the heated oil. Cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side, until chicken is cooked through. Continue with the rest of the chicken mixture. Top with extra cheese.
