Opt for oven-baked zucchini chips as a light, yet tasty alternative to fries or chips. This baked zucchini chip recipe is a fun and easy way to use up summer zucchini, and it’s one your family will request time and time again. The high oven temperature will evaporate moisture from inside the zucchini and crisp the breadcrumb coating to a beautiful golden brown. The thinner you slice the chips, the crisper they’ll get in the oven. If needed, pat the zucchini slices dry with a paper towel before tossing in oil to remove any excess moisture. Finish the baked zucchini chips with fresh herbs and even more grated Parmesan for extra flavor.
