Baked Zucchini Slices
Hey guys! Kellyn here – Ok, so you know how I pretty much loathe most veggies? It’s sad, I know… But it’s who I am. That being said, I have a handful of vegetables that I can handle – ZUCCHINI is one of them! Our favorite Sunday dinner side dishes is this recipe for fried zucchini. Yes, they’re fried which isn’t necessarily “good” for you, so we decided to make a healthier version – today’s recipe for Baked Zucchini Chips.
Like most of our recipes, this dish was very simple. The coating process was basically the same as fried zucchini, but instead of frying them in oil, we baked them in the oven for 30 minutes. The result was a delicious, crispy zucchini chip that tasted just as good as the fried version. We were super impressed at how delicious these were!
Cooking on a wire rack over a baking dish worked best for this recipe.
How to Make Zucchini Chips:
These Zucchini chips really are so easy to make. You begin by whisking together the breadcrumbs, cheese, garlic powder, salt and pepper. From there, you place the milk in a shallow bowl and dip the zucchini slices in, followed by tossing them in the breadcrumb mixture, coating both sides.
Then, place the zucchini slices on a wire rack coating with cooking spray. Bake for 30 minutes or until browned and crisp. Simple!
We know that fried foods always taste amazing, but we think you will enjoy these zucchini chips. These are definitely best when served straight from the oven so if you’re making them for a party or dinner, be sure to keep that in mind. Also, if you want to be even healthier and not serve these with regular Ranch dressing, we recommend serving them with the Yogurt Ranch (like Bolthouse Farms, which we think tastes great!)
