Oven Baked Zucchini Chips:
Wash with cool water and dry your Zucchini first to remove any soil. Then, slice your Zucchini into thin circles. Pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees and place a sheet of non-stick aluminum foil on a cookie sheet.
In a medium sized bowl, measure out 1 cup of Italian bread crumbs or Italian panko bread crumbs. Add in 1/2 cup of grated parmesan cheese, 1 tsp. garlic powder, 1/4 tsp. of fresh cracked pepper. (no need to add salt, as the cheese takes it place) Dip your zucchini slices into another bowl in which you have poured 1/2 cup of low-fat milk.
Then dip into the bread crumb mixture. Shaking off any excess.
Lay the slices flat onto the foil, not touching each other.
Cook in your pre-heated oven for 20-30 minutes. checking to make sure they do not over brown, depending on the thickness of your slices.
Serve warm and enjoy.
