baked breaded zucchini chips

i bought a massive zucchini a few weeks ago from the farmer's market that i had to cook up soon or it would go to waste. i initially wanted to make bread or soup but both seemed so labor intensive. i did a quick search on foodgawker for inspiration and came across For the Love of Cooking's Baked Zucchini Sticks. i've always loved breaded zucchini (or mushrooms or pretty much anything!) and it seemed easy enough. i had a bag of Asian bread flakes in the pantry and i went to town.

Baked Breaded Zucchini Chips
inspired by For the Love of Cooking

1 zucchini, sliced in 1/2" discs
1 egg, slightly whisked
2 cups bread crumbs (or whatever type of bread flakes you like to use)
salt/pepper to taste

preheat oven to 350 degrees. line cookie sheet with foil. in an assembly line, dip zucchini chips into the egg, coating it. drop into the bread flakes, again coating it. place on the cookie sheet. bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

you could dip these chips into salad dressing but i made a simple spicy peanut soy sauce. it was fast and easy and i *think* pretty healthy. it would make an excellent side or appetizer but i was feeling lazy so i just had it for dinner. what i liked best was that the outter layer was relatively crispy but inside still soft.

last, please don't forget about the boob bake off

  1. This looks SO much healthier than baba's tempura zucchini's.

    That spicy peanut soy sauce sounds good, are you going to post that next?

    the peanut dipping sauce was something random i whipped up. nothing major. peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, chili paste, all mixed together. i may have added some water to loosen it up and voila!
