Baked Zucchini Chips

These little bite-sized zucchini chips are the perfect treat. I seasoned these with Italian herbs and Parmesan cheese. Then I baked them in the oven, instead of deep frying to make them a bit more healthy. They are very tasty as a mid-afternoon salty snack or an appetizer before a nice Italian dinner.

Baked Zucchini Chips

Ingredients:

2 medium zucchini, sliced thin
2 tablespoons kosher salt
1/3 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
2 tablespoons milk
non-stick spray

Directions:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Add zucchini and salt to a colander, toss well. Let sit for 15 - 20 minutes. Press out any extra water and then rinse very well under running water.

Add zucchini to a bowl with milk and toss well. In another bowl, add bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, onion powder, garlic powder, dried basil and dried oregano. Add zucchini and toss in breadcrumb mixture, coating each side.

Spray a nonstick baking sheet with non-stick spray. Place zucchini chips in a single layer on sheet and spray the tops of the zucchini with non-stick spray.

Bake for 5 - 7 minutes and then flip, and bake for 5 - 7 minutes more.

    Looks good, I usually grill some zucchini and squash when i’m making steak, I feel like this is another great way to enjoy zucchini. I might even try it with squash too,

    StumbleUpon knows I like zucchini recipes, haha. These look really fantastic. I usually cut them long ways into french fry shapes, but I will have to try this way. It is amazing how different the same vegetable can taste depending on how you cut it.

    I attempted to make these, and while the flavor was awesome, I had a question:

    Are the “chips” supposed to be floppy?

    I made the mistake of using tongs to flip them, so I lost a lot of the breading in the process. I lined my pan with foil and sprayed it with cooking spray; I think I should have used a spatula. I also cut them about 1/8 of an inch thin, so I don’t know if that was why they were floppy and not crispy. I got out most of the moisture.

    Guy – They aren’t suppose to be very floppy. It may also somewhat depend on the moisture level of the zucchini you use. The smaller ones seemed to work better for me. I am not very exact on the thickness that I cut them, the thinner I can cut them, the better.
