Ingredients
- Serves 4 +

STEP 1
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a sheet tray with a silicone mat or aluminum foil.
STEP 2
Make sure the Zucchini (1) has been squeezed well with a paper towel to get out most of the water.
STEP 3
Combine zucchini, Ground Chicken (1 pound), Dijon Mustard (1 teaspoon), Salt (1/2 teaspoon), Garlic Powder (1/2 teaspoon), Dried Onions (1/2 teaspoon), Dried Parsley (1/2 teaspoon), and Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1/2 teaspoon) in a large bowl and stir it together thoroughly.
STEP 4
Use a 1 1/2-inch cookie scoop to scoop perfect little portions of the mixture. Take each portion and lightly press it down into a mini patty and line them up on the lined sheet tray as you form them. With that measurement you should get about 27.
STEP 5
Bake them for 25-30 minutes, until cooked through and they have developed a little color on the outside.
STEP 6
Serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauces like salsa, ketchup, or HP sauce!

Good and easy took longer to cook though. I didn't add the red pepper flakes as I was feeding to my toddler, and something was definitely missing. I think I might make again with fresh spices instead of dry.
