We tried Gina's zucchini sticks recipe first but the middle of some of them were super mushy, I think because I didn't cut them all evenly. My solution to that was make them as chips instead of sticks! It's a lot easier to keep them the same size that way.
Baked Zucchini Chips (adapted from SkinnyTaste.com)
- 2 medium zucchini cut into 1/4 inch slices
- 1 large egg white
- 1/3 cup seasoned whole wheat bread crumbs
- 2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
- cooking spray
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- fresh pepper
In a small bowl, beat egg whites and season with salt and pepper. In a bowl, place breadcrumbs, garlic powder and cheese and combine. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
Dip zucchini chips into eggs then into bread crumb and cheese mixture, a few at a time and coat well. Place the breaded zucchini in a single layer on cookie sheet. Bake at 475° for about 7-8 minutes, then turn over and bake for another 8-10 minutes until browned and crispy. Serve with marinara sauce or ranch for dipping.
