Zucchini Chips

Last night I saw a recipe on Facebook for Zucchini Chips and since I had all the ingredients, I made them!

Zucchini Oven Chips

2 1/2 C. (1/8 inch-thick) slices
1/4 C. ground almonds
1/4 C. grated fresh parmesan cheese
1/4 t seasoned salt
1/4 t garlic powder
1/8 t black pepper
2 T milk


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 then coat in dry mixture.  Place coated slices on an oven proof wire rack coated with cooking spray.  Place rack on a baking sheet.  Bake at 425* for 20 minutes or until browned and crisp.  Serve immediately.

I had a huge zucchini so I just sliced up the whole thing and doubled the dry ingredients.  They were pretty good!  If I were to do it again and double the recipe like I did, I would put only half in the bowl that you are coating in.  Dipping the milk coated zucchini slice into the dry mixture started to make the dry mixture wet after awhile and it was impossible to coat the zucchini.  I ended up just dipping it in milk and sprinkling some of the coating on top of the zucchini slices before baking.  It was still good that way, though.

My mom called while I was making these and said something about a chip maker she bought from Pampered Chef... then I remembered I bought one, too!  I haven't even used it!!  Since I cut up an entire big zucchini, I decided to make some on the chip maker, too.  Those were really good!  All I did was sprinkle a little salt on them.  My girls liked them, too!  ...well one liked the baked ones and the other liked the microwave ones.. haha
