If you like seasoned, cheesy, delicious, baked zucchini chips, first of all, I now know why we’re best friends! Secondly, I heart you!

So HEY, besties! Happy Sunday! Long time no chat. I left my ‘puter in my laptop bag for a total of 5 days. I didn’t touch it, didn’t look at it, didn’t care for it. It was time to chillax in Ohrid, and get my tan ON! Happy to report, I haven’t been this dark since my last sunny vacay, which was 8 years agoooo! Crazy, right? You just don’t realize how much your body needs a sunny vacation until you go on one and don’t want to come back.

But… you know how the song goes… back to life, back to realityback to the here and now, YEAH.

Zucchini Chips

Okay, Baked Garlic Parmesan Zucchini Chips. Heaven-sent. Not too soft, not too firm, crunchy, seasoned, zucchini chips which I could eat straight from that bowl, all by myself… It’s what my dreams are made of. Besides, STAR’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Omega-3 DHA combines the robust flavor of Extra Virgin Olive Oil with heart healthy Omega 3 DHA, which makes these chips even more desirable!

However, we’re adding all sorts of easy magic to these chips – panko crumbs, parmesan cheese, oregano, garlic! I’m getting lightheaded just typing all of that out.

By the way, and this is totally just a suggestion, buuuuut, the key to making a good crunchy chip out of squash is all in how thin you slice it. The thinner, the crunchier.
If serving as an appetizer, I slice them super thin, however, if serving as a side dish, I go much thicker. So, that’s my FYI.

Baked Garlic Parmesan Zucchini Chips

In all honesty? I’ll use any excuse to make a batch of tender OR crunchy squash chips. These are perfect for that end of summer zucchini stash you’ve got goin’ on. I was feeling indulgent, so we enjoyed these chips slightly warm, with a side of creamy yogurt and good company.

  1. Not very flavorful….needs more seasonings..
    Also, expected the coating to stick but it didn’t…had to pile the panko-parmesan mixture on…
    Will tweak the flavors and ingredients to make it more savory..
    Also I will not buy aerosol sprays…so just drizzled small amount of olive oil on top.
    Could have cooked the whole batch about 4 minutes longer to get a crisper chip. next time.!!

      Hi, Betsy. Rather than using an aerosol spray,, you can purchase a manual oil mister/cooking sprayer. I use a Chefvantage in the kitchen and a Misto outdoors. The Chefvantage has a glass bottle, the Misto is aluminum. Both are available on Amazon.

    I’m in Germany and I made this recipe and I enjoyed it very much. We don’t have cooking spray, so to compensate ,I took one slice of zucchini and dipped it in olive oil and coated the tops of the already breaded zucchinis.
    It worked well. I also used parchment paper instead of aluminum foil. I also have a convection oven so it baked faster. I set the temperature at 220°C or 230°C without a convection oven. I baked them for about 12 minutes and turned the pan in the opposite direction, Everyone liked them. It was also very easy to do.

    I make these often…great snack for a diabetic! I use small zucchinis and slice them on the thinner side. I pour 2 egg whites into a quart baggie and throw in a bunch of zucchini slices. In a wide bowl I season the panko and Parmesan cheese with garlic and onion powders, along with ground red chili for some kick. I do have to pile the mixture on each slice, as not enough sticks to it for my liking. It is tedious but worth it.

  4. Just had these for dinner…delish! Crispiness is achieved by placing the coated slices directly on the baking sheet – a sheet that has been sprayed. I served with homemade ranch dressing. YUM-O! Thank you for sharing.

    The video is misleading, they are cut very thick, and it shows just dipping the slices in the bread crumbs. They don’t stick that way. Also it took an hour to get close to crisp, but still soggy. Waste of time.

    1. Hi! I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy the zucchini chips! I don’t think the video is misleading at all … in my blog post, I do talk about cutting them thick when I serve them as a side dish, and how I cut them thin when serving them as an appetizer. The thinner you cut these, the crispier they will be.

  6. Saw these the other day and thought they looked great. Now I’m back to print out the recipe as these are going to be part of my dinner tonight 🙂 Thanks. Can’t wait.
