The Best Chicken Zucchini Patties

This recipe is not your typical Chicken Patties. The delectable patties are packed with zucchini which aids in the most juicy and tender meat. Not only are they ridiculously easy to prepare they are also Gluten Free.

Tantalizing Chicken Zucchini Patties are going to become your new favorite go to recipe! 

Do you ever fall in love with a recipe at first bite? On my quest to find gluten and dairy free meals, that still pack a punch of flavor, I found myself absolutely smitten. They are flavored with the perfect balance of sweet and savory in every bite.

What’s inside these amazing chicken zucchini patties

Juicy zucchini, ginger, aminos (or soy sauce), honey and a little dry mustard. Wait, we can’t forget the green onion which balances the patty with a perfect crunch. You can easily modify this recipe swapping soy sauce for aminos, actually I prefer aminos over soy sauce now. Not only do I love the health benefits of BRAGG AMINOS, the flavor is very pleasant.

Look closely pictured below and you can see the juiciness of The Best ZUCCHINI CHICKEN PATTIES

Chicken Zucchini Patties

Back in August I started a 28 day cleanse (HAPPY GUT) that prompted me to create this recipe for chicken zucchini patties. There are a multitude of different versions, but for myself this recipe was THE BEST! When frying these yummy chicken patties you may use olive oil or coconut oil. While cooking with olive oil (our favorite oil) be careful not to overheat the pan or you will burn the outsides. In this picture above you can see the caramelization on the patties, this is exactly what you want.
