Serve these crispy baked chips as a side or an app.
Makes 4 servings
Total time: 50 Minutes
1/2 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
1/4 cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 pound zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch-thick rounds
1 tablespoon olive oil
Vegetable cooking spray
Preheat oven to 450°. Process first 3 ingredients in a food processor 10 to 15 seconds or until finely ground. Stir together breadcrumb mixture and cheese in a medium bowl. Toss zucchini rounds with oil. Dredge zucchini, 1 round at time, in breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to adhere. Place rounds in a single layer in a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Bake 30 minutes or until browned and crisp. Serve hot.
