Recipe Notes

  • I like to use avocado oil, but you can use any type of oil.
  • I bought chicken breast and minced it in the food processor. It was more cost effective than purchasing ground chicken. I cut them into 1-inch pieces and put handfuls at a time in the food processor and used the pulse setting until I reached the desired size. if you're going to do this method make sure you pat fry the chicken with paper towels.
