Toss chicken with zucchini, green onion, cilantro, garlic, salt and pepper (and cumin if using). The mixture will be quite wet.

Cook 8-10 at a time for about 5-6 minutes on the first side. Flip and cook an additional 4-5 minutes or until golden brown and the centers are cooked through.

Directions to bake:

Drizzle a bit of olive or coconut oil onto a baking sheet. Scoop meatballs onto the greased pan. Drizzle a bit of additional oil over meatballs.
