1. Mix zucchini, chicken, onion, jalapeno, garlic and spices together until combined.
2. Divide mixture into 8 equal portions. Form each portion into a patty.
3. If using a grill, place on grill top until cooked through. Add Parmesan cheese near the end to melt.
If using the oven, preheat to 425 degrees. Place the patties on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake for about 18-20 minutes until center is cooked through (firm). Remove patties from oven, place the oven rack to top position and then set oven to broil. Sprinkle each patty with Parmesan cheese and place in the oven. Broil until tops are light brown and crispy
