Zucchini Chips


I found this recipe for Zucchini Chips on MyRecipes.com when I was looking for dinner ideas.  This immediately caught my eye and I thought this might be fun for the kids and maybe my Little Man will eat a vegetable that is not a tomato or cucumber -but it does resemble a cucumber so I thought that would help.  These were really good but I must admit, once I started breading them I did begin to think "what have I gotten myself into?"  it was tedious, dipping and breading two zucchinis worth of chips.  But I was happy with the end result, Hubby thought they were good too, Sweet Girl loved them and Little Man well - he wasn't fooled by the cucumber look a like.  He was at first and he ate one before it was breaded and cooked, he didn't like it so once they were done he wouldn't give it another try.  I tried to offer him a variety of dips and dressings to get him to eat it but he wouldn't.  Oh well - the rest of us liked it.  Enjoy!!

What you need:
1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated fresh Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons milk
2 1/2 cups (1/4-inch-thick) slices zucchini (about 2 small)
Cooking spray

What you do:


Preheat oven to 425°.
Combine first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Place milk in a shallow bowl. Dip zucchini slices in milk, and dredge in breadcrumb mixture. Place coated slices on an ovenproof wire rack coated with cooking spray; place rack on a baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 30 minutes or until browned and crisp. Serve immediately.

  13. It's hard to get kids to change their minds once made up! I do like fried zucchini, like the ones from Maggiano's so these would be good. Thanks for sharing with Fat Camp Friday. See you next week! http://bit.ly/npf0ml

  24. I got this recipe from allrecipes.com last week and we made these with yellow squash. Yum! And...I don't really like yellow squash.

    As for tedious, yes it was. But my 11 year old daughter who loves to cook took care of that part.

    Really yummy plain and dipped in homemade ranch!

  37. Your recipe sounds great. An easier, faster way to add flavor interest is to add sauces and marinades to the zucchini before drying.
