Lemon Zucchini Chicken Meatballs

The other day I discovered an incredible thing – Chicken Mince!

Ok… really, it’s not that big of a discovery.

I have known about Chicken Mince for quite some time but I have never bought it!

So the other day I decided that it was time to stop walking past it and pick it up.

Then it was time to figure out what I should cook with it.

And this my friends, is what I created…

Lemon Zucchini Chicken

500g Chicken Mince
1 Zucchini
½ Lemon
½ cup Breadcrumbs
Salt & Pepper

Using a small grater, grate zucchini and squeeze excess juice out. Combine chicken mince and zucchini. Squeeze approximately 1 tablespoon of lemon juice into chicken. Add salt and pepper as desired. Mix well.

Roll into small balls. Makes about 15 balls. Roll meatballs in breadcrumbs until covered.

Heat fry pan with 1 tablespoon of oil. Add meatballs. Turn occasionally. Cook until outsides are browned. While browning, squeeze remaining lemon juice over meatballs to add additional flavour. Once meatballs are browned, transfer to an oven proof dish and cook in moderate oven 180ºC / 350ºF for a further 15 minutes.
