HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED


36 oz. (raw weight) ground chicken breast


6 oz. avocado


¼ cup diced onion


1 tsp mustard powder


½ tsp chili powder

1 tsp garlic powder


¼ tsp salt


½ tsp paprika


¼ tsp cumin


½ cup shredded zucchini

HOW TO MAKE IT


In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except the avocado.


Once the spices are thoroughly mixed into the chicken, gently stir in avocado and form the mixture into 4 patties.


Grill over medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes on each side. Make sure the burgers reach a temperature of 165 degrees.

Chicken Parmesan Meatballs


1 lb. ground chicken


1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


1/4 tsp pepper


1/2 tsp garlic salt


1/2 tsp Italian seasoning


1/4 tsp onion powder


3/4 cup reduced fat mozzarella cheese, divided


1 1/2 cups Italian diced tomatoes, divided

HOW TO MAKE IT


Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly spritz a 9x13-inch glass dish with cooking spray.


Blend diced tomatoes in blender or small chopper to resemble tomato sauce or until desired consistency.


Combine ground chicken, Parmesan cheese, spices and half of the mozzarella cheese.

Measure 3 tbsp of tomato sauce and add to the ground chicken mixture until completely combined; form into meatballs.


I made 21 meatballs.


Place meatballs in prepared glass dish and bake for 25 minutes.


Spread tomato sauce over meatballs and sprinkle with leftover mozzarella cheese.


Broil until cheese is melted and enjoy!
