Oven Baked Zucchini Chips

Ingredients

  • 1 (large) zucchini, cut into 1/8″ – 1/4″ slices
  • 1/3 cup whole grain breadcrumbs, optional Panko (homemade breadcrumb recipe)
  • 1/4 cup finely grated parmesan cheese, reduced fat
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Kosher or sea salt to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 tablespoons low-fat milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Combine in a small mixing bowl, breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, black pepper, salt, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. Dip zucchini slices into milk and dredge into bread crumbs to coat both sides. Note: It may be necessary to press crumbs onto zucchini slices to ensure the crumbs stick.
  3. Arrange zucchini on a non-stick cookie sheet and lightly mist with a non-stick cooking spray.
  4. If using a rack, place rack on a cookie sheet. Bake 15 minutes, turn over and continue baking until golden, approximately 10-15 minutes (being careful not to burn). Allow to cool to room temperature before storing in an airtight container.
  5. TIP: Zucchini Chips will continue to get crispier while cooling.
  6. NOTE: For gluten free chips, use gluten-free bread crumbs.
