Baked Zucchini Chips

*picture courtesy of cooking light

i love zucchini but often run into a road block with its possibilities; it's such an easy, healthy side dish but i always end up making my tried & true go-to, {tuscan-style slice & dice zucchini}. while it is one of my favorites, i decided i needed to reinvent & reinvigorate my love of the zuc.

so on a rainy monday night, i tried my hand at these "chips"! not only are they low in calories, they are the perfect alternative to greasy fries. and hey, if my husband loved them, i can guarantee kids will too!

  • 1/4 cup italian breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

2. mix first 4 ingredients in a small bowl. pour milk into another bowl.

3. dip zucchini chips into milk & dredge through breadcrumb mixture. place on a greased wire rack coated with cooking spray; place rack on a baking sheet.

4. bake for 30 minutes or until brown & crisped.
