Oven Fried Zucchini Chips.

These "chips" are easy to make... crunchy on the outside and creamy in the middle, they are an excellent stand-in for french fries or onion rings - not to mention delicious!

Oven-Fried Parmesan Zucchini Chips
(adapted from Cooking Light)
1 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
*1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
**1/3 cup milk
2 small zucchini 
Cooking spray or vegetable/olive oil
*I added garlic powder... I thought it was a nice addition.
** I only had whipping cream on hand, so I used it instead and it made a nice, thick coating

1. Preheat oven to 425° F. Grease a large oven-proof wire rack set on a baking sheet.
2. Mix together bread crumbs, Parmesan, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and pepper in a medium bowl.  Place milk in a separate bowl. 

3. Slice zucchini. 

4. Dip slices in milk then in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing the zucchini in the crumb mixture to insure a decent crumb coating. 

5. Place slices on wire rack. Repeat until all are coated.

3. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately.
