Chicken Zucchini Burgers: Dinner Tonight

Sorry... I just can't find the link to where I found this recipe - and this is not my photo, but don't those look good?. They ARE good! Especially when you are really hungry and you need something really fast. And it's great to have leftovers. I put leftovers in the freezer, separated by waxed paper in between layers. Sure will make it much easier to get dinner made tonight! :-)
I like that you don't have to use bread crumbs to hold them together. And you can start with ground chicken in the first place so that you don't have to involve the food processor - except maybe to shred the zucchini. I used a 1/3 cup measure to form the burgers. Trying to remember how many that made... starting with a 1.2 lb. package of ground chicken (or you could sub ground turkey) it was about eight, as I recall.

Chicken Zucchini Burgers

1 lb (400 gram) chicken breast fillets
1 cup chopped zucchini
2cm piece fresh ginger chopped
2 spring onion chopped
1/4 cup fresh coriander leaves
1 tablespoon coconut aminos
1 egg
3 tablespoons freshly ground flaxseed
Extra virgin coconut oil

Blend everything except the oil in the food processor. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Now use a large spoon to form 5-6 patties. Cook patties for 3 to 4 minutes each side or until browned and cooked through.
