Ingredients:

1 Zucchini
Canola Cooking Spray
Seasoned Salt or Other Seasonings of Your Choice

Instructions:

Preheat Oven and Prepare Baking Sheet:

Preheat your oven to 225 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or nonstick foil, then lightly spray with canola oil. Set aside.

Slice Zucchini:

Using a knife or mandoline slicer, slice the zucchini into thin medallions, aiming for a thickness similar to that of a quarter.

Arrange Zucchini Slices:

Lay out the zucchini slices evenly on the prepared baking sheet. Lightly spray the tops with additional cooking spray.

Season Zucchini:

Sprinkle the zucchini slices with seasoned salt or your choice of seasonings. Be cautious not to over-season, as the flavors will concentrate during baking.

Bake Zucchini Chips:

Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 45 minutes. Afterward, rotate the baking sheet and continue baking for an additional 30-50 minutes, or until the chips are browned and crisped to your liking.

Serve and Enjoy:

Once baked, remove the zucchini chips from the oven and allow them to cool slightly. Enjoy them fresh from the oven as they are best eaten within a couple of hours to maintain their crispiness. One zucchini typically yields one serving, approximately 1/4 to 1/3 cup of chips depending on the size of your squash.

Note:

These zucchini chips are a delicious and healthy snack option, perfect for satisfying your cravings without derailing your diet goals. Experiment with different seasonings to find your favorite flavor combination!

FAQs:

Can I use other types of seasoning besides seasoned salt?

Absolutely! Feel free to get creative with your seasonings. Experiment with options like garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, or even a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese for added flavor.

What if I don’t have a mandoline slicer to slice the zucchini thinly?

No problem! You can use a sharp knife and a steady hand to slice the zucchini into thin medallions. Just aim for slices that are about the thickness of a quarter.

How do I prevent the chips from getting chewy if left out?

These zucchini chips are best enjoyed within a couple of hours of being removed from the oven. If you have any leftovers, store them in an airtight container to help maintain their crispiness.

Can I make a larger batch of these chips?

Absolutely! Simply adjust the quantities of ingredients accordingly to make a larger batch. Just keep in mind that you may need to use multiple baking sheets or bake the chips in batches to ensure they cook evenly.

Are these chips suitable for those following a gluten-free diet?

Yes, these zucchini chips are naturally gluten-free, making them a great option for those with gluten sensitivities or allergies.

Can I serve these chips with a dip?

Of course! These zucchini chips pair well with a variety of dips, such as hummus, guacamole, or a yogurt-based dip. Get creative and enjoy them however you like best!
