Mommy Hiker [Food Series] Zucchini Fritters (Mücver)

Mücver is one of my husband's favorite dishes (in case I haven't mentioned it, he is from Istanbul, Turkey).

Ingredients:
5 Small Zucchinis grated
4 Green Onions chopped (whites & greens)
1/3 cup fresh chopped dill
1/3 cup fresh chopped flat leaf parsley
1/4 cup fresh chopped mint

This crispy fried chicken sandwich recipe is better than Chik-Fil-A, Popeye's or McDonald's! The chicken breast is brined in pickle juice, breaded with flavorful seasonings, fried until golden brown, and then piled on a toasted brioche bun with lettuce, tomato, pickles and mayonnaise. Serve the sandwich with a side of waffle fries and homemade Chik-Fil-A sauce for dipping!
