Chicken and Cauliflower Poppers

I love getting recipe ideas from Facebook, family and by watching The Chew. Last week Daphne Oz made Chicken and Cauliflower poppers. I did modify the recipe a touch to fit our family Daphne used fresh parsley where as I have an abundance of oregano from the garden and I like it so much better than parsley. The second substitution was a sweet onion from the garden replacing the scallions she used. Last but not least, instead of grinding chicken I used already ground turkey I had in the freezer.


I wanted to make the chicken and cauliflower poppers Friday night for supper without telling my husband what they were as I wanted an honest reaction for the new recipe. Well, it was well received and he almost did not leave me any. 


Not frying all the poppers I refrigerated the remaining mixture thinking it would make an easy meal Sunday after church or even Monday evening. The hubby liked the poppers so much; he requested I fry up the rest tonight. With the chicken cauliflower poppers we had Kale chips for a delicious supper.


Ingredients to make chicken and cauliflower poppers:


  • 1 small head cauliflower; cut into florets
  • 1 small sweet onion; chopped
  • 3 tablespoons oregano; dried
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 pound ground chicken or ground turkey
  • salt and black pepper
  • oil; for frying

Instructions to make chicken and cauliflower poppers:
1.     Using a food processor, combine cauliflower florets, onions, oregano, garlic and soy sauce; puree until a chunky paste forms.  Add the ground chicken or ground turkey, salt and pepper and pulse until the mixture has evenly combined.
2.     Heat enough vegetable oil to cover a medium sauté pan over medium high heat.  Using a tablespoon, scoop the meatballs into the pan being sure not to crowd the pan.  Cook on each side for 4-5 minutes.
3.     Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.

We loved the chicken and cauliflower poppers, serve them up for your family, it's even a great super bowl party recipe, they will love them.
