I am obviously obsessing over foods that are deep fried and trying to find substitutes for them. Nothing beats the pickles but I saw this recipe as well and decided to share with those that don't like pickles but maybeee zucchini??
So here is a recipe for this squash-family veggie dredged in breadcrumbs and thrown in the oven as well. The picture is pretty mouth-watering and I am intrigued by the addition of the parmesan cheese.
Bon Appetit!

Zucchini Oven Chips
Yield: 4 servings {serving size: about 3/4 cup}
Course: Side Dishes/Vegetables

1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
1/4 cup {1 ounce} grated fresh Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons fat-free milk
2-1/2 cups {1/4-inch-thick} slices zucchini {about 2 small}
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 425°.
Combine first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Place milk in a shallow bowl. Dip zucchini slices in milk, and dredge in breadcrumb mixture. Place coated slices on an ovenproof wire rack coated with cooking spray; place rack on baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 30 minutes or until browned and crisp. Serve immediately.
