This recipe for Chicken Zucchini Poppers is easy to make and delicious to eat. Good for Paleo, Low Carb and Whole30.  They can be served as an appetizer or as a healthy meal.


  • 1 lb Ground Chicken
  • 1 Tbsp Minced Garlic
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp Pepper
  • 2 Tbsp fresh Parsley, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp Cilantro, Chopped
  • 1 ½ cups grated Zucchini 
  • Olive Oil for frying or baking





The most important thing to do when making your poppers is to squeeze as much water out of the shredded zucchini before mixing it in with your ground chicken.

You may have your own favorite oil for frying, mine is olive oil because I  like the way it tastes.

You can either buy the ground chicken in the store or if you choose to, you can buy the chicken of your choice and grind it up yourself in a food processor.

You can either fry your poppers or bake them, the choice is yours.

To make sure that they are cooked thoroughly use a meat thermometer and they are done when it reaches 160 degrees.

Chicken Poppers can be assembled together ahead of time if you want to and then cooked later the same day or the next day.

To bake the chicken instead of frying them line a baking tray with a piece of parchment paper so that they will not stick to the tray.

Spray both sides of the poppers with olive oil to keep them moist and to also get a little taste like fried without frying them in oil.
