  • 500 g chicken mince
  • 1 grated medium zucchini with moisture squeezed out
  • 1 bunch chopped fresh coriander
  • Cooking oil spray
  • 1 finely grated large fresh beetroot
  • 1 finely chopped small red onion
  • 1 finely grated medium carrot
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream


  1. Preheat oven 220°C (200°C fan forced). In a medium mixing bowl combine mince, zucchini and half the bunch of coriander. Roll tablespoons full of mixture into balls, with your hands. Coat balls with Crispy Chicken Spice Mix.

Decrease time for fewer Soft Tacos. Increase time when using a microwave oven lower than 1100 watts.
