YIELDS: 10-12 patties

Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Total Time: 20 Minutes


  • 1 lb lean ground chicken
  • 1 medium zucchini, grated and squeezed well of excess moisture
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Nonstick, zero-calorie spray


1.    Generously spray a large skillet with non-stick cooking spray.

2.    Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Mixture should be wet.

3.    Form into patties (1 1/2'' wide for mini patties). Cook however many patties you can fit flat in the skillet, over medium heat for 7-8 minutes. If patties are cooking too fast, turn down heat and spray the pan again if necessary. Flip the patties and cook for another 4-5 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.

4.    Cook the remaining patties, in batches if necessary. Serve and enjoy!
