Paleo Zucchini Chicken Fritters


Getting kids to eat vegetables can be tricky sometimes. In fact, it can be tricky to get adults to eat their veggies sometimes! So anytime I can sneak the greens into our meat, I do. These Paleo Zucchini Chicken Fritters are great place to hide veggies, and plus they are the perfect size for those tiny hands. My kids loved helping to make these and enjoyed eating them even more. That, my friends, makes a mama very happy!

    These are super tasty. My daughter is on her 4th one and she asked me to freeze them and pack them in her lunch the first day of school.

    These are seriously yummy. It’s not easy finding great paleo dishes that include your veggies, protein & fat in one dish….especially one that’s so fun for the kids.

    I always cook ground meat longer than directed for fear of undercooking. Even still, these turned out super moist! I used ground turkey.

    This will be a go to for sure…thanks!

    These are delicious made with ground lamb too! I didn’t have any bacon but they were still great!

    These are SOOOOO delicious. Even my finicky toddler loves them. We used ground turkey because that’s what we had on hand and they came out great. Froze a bunch and reheated today (thawed in the mirco and then baked at 350 for 5 minutes on each side). They came out super delicious as well. We will definitely be adding these to our regualr freezer stash.
